Synopsis

The competitive edge and creativity which globalization demands of corporations and states alike requires fresh management methods. There is growing awareness that unlocking human potential is a key to sustaining growth. However, hierarchical management structures, which reward adherence to outdated thinking and hamper creative and energetic citizens and employees, are still widespread in government and private sectors in Southeast Asia. The articles on Human Resource Development (HRD) in this volume span and link the concerns of states and business. The first section contains advice on HRD for government leaders and policymakers. The second considers HRD in the corporate sector, with analysis and advice on strategic HRD, developing competence, and corporate case studies.

Excerpt

The coming into being of this volume is a milestone in the achievements of the ASEAN-EC Management Centre (AEMC). It will extend the reach of the type of generative ideas that gave form to the many chapters in this book authored by both famous statesmen and successful business consultants. It is furthermore the crowning achievement of the institution’s director, Abd Ghani Pg Hj Metusin, and his capable and loyal staff.

As with all valuable books, avid readers will find pearls of wisdom in this anthology that attempt to bridge the unnecessarily wide gap between state governance and business management. It contains much useful advice for the practical person as well as the theoretically minded.

Pg Dato Paduka Haji Abd Hamid bin Pg Hj Mohd Yassin Permanent Secretary at the Prime Minister’s Office Brunei Darussalam . . .
