Summary

Developing Future Leaders. To equip new and middle managers to lead innovation and high performing teams.

OVERVIEW

In a fast-paced and uncertain business environment, change is inevitable and also uncomfortable. Mature organisations often find it difficult to innovate especially if they are highly profitable or enjoy a monopolistic position. To stay relevant, organisations need agile managers who can look ahead, spot and leverage opportunities.

BFM-Edge Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) is designed to produce such entrepreneurial managers in the early part of their career. You will be equipped with the methodology and tools to innovate and achieve results through teams. In an assignment, you will apply design thinking, learn how to solve problems creatively and pitch your ideas. You will also be exposed to practices of companies like Google in building high performing teams.

Participants are new managers or from middle management.

A certificate of participation is awarded for completing the programme.

CURRICULUM

  • STRATEGY & INNOVATION, 13 - 15 Aug

    As business landscape changes, it is critical for managers to understand the language of innovation to stay ahead of competition. We start off with connecting strategy and innovation, and applying the tools of design thinking used by companies such as GE, Apple, Nike and Alessi. Design thinking allows you to identify the “job-to-be-done” for customers, to co-create and boost customers’ touch-points and service journeys, and develop new competitive value. To apply what you have learned, you will ideate and prototype new products/services for a real business.

  • LEADERSHIP, 16 - 17 Aug

    Based on global best practices of Google, you will learn how to build high performing teams through understanding values, inculcating growth mindset, coaching and giving feedback, dealing with underperformers, and managing conflict, energy and time.

    The module ends with insights from the founder of BFM Media on building a startup to profitability in a highly competitive industry. Known for its engaging interviews, BFM 89.9 the business radio station has featured local and international leaders and practises an egalitarian culture with the purpose of “building first-world Malaysians”.
