M006 2-Day Master Class on Creating Better Performing Companies through Effective Digital Transforma


Workshop - 2 Days

14 & 15 November 2017 YANGON

Tue & Wed

Trainer: Anwar Jumabhoy

“We needed entrepreneurs to infuse talent and technology into the company. We don't have the arrogance to think we know everything.” - Jeff Immelt

We can create better, healthier companies through effective digital transformation.”

- Jeremy Blain, Regional Managing Director, Cegos Asia Pacific

We face a digital world where Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA) is the “new normal”. Traditional companies have relied on old management practices, designed for a time when information was limited. These companies expanded and as business became more complex their organizations got bigger, a rigidity and confirming cultures sets in.

“Custodians of Procedures” surface and take hold of the organization. The result-orientated, “let’s do it” mindset is replaced by one of compliance. Everyone is “doing their job” but many of your managers many have lost sight of the customer needs and therefore business performance suffers.

How do you get back your entrepreneurial roots, where energy levels are high, employee and company goals are aligned, with eyes (& minds) focused on the customer? That’s the mindset of an entrepreneur.

Many programs are available to address the culture of the organization or the “thinking” process of staff. Our approach is different for two simple reasons. We offer an in-house contextual specific program. This program is designed to open up the mindset to entrepreneurial behaviors and this is followed up with a full day that deals with issues in the organizations.

Participants learn how to think like entrepreneurs and then apply that thinking in their workplace. Entrepreneurship doesn’t require you to start a new business.

The workshop is designed to discover issues and “acu-points” in the organization that prevent it from achieving its full potential. Participants can leave the 2-day workshop with specific changes they can implement in the organization relating to policies and procedures.

In addition, based on the experience of the trainer, participants will be exposed to new technologies in data collection and reporting.
