#DigitalTransformation is a must for almost every large or small company these days. Most of the failure cases of digital transformation is on the soft side of the journey. The soft side includes #leadership#culture#talent and most importantly #ChangeManagement.

I am so grateful to partner with one of the most experienced enterprise transformation leaders in #DigitalEra in Hong Kong, Teddy Liu, to co-create, co-design and co-deliver a course on the soft side of the Digital Transformation. We called the course “Leadership & Workforce Transformation in the Digital Era”. Really appreciate Teddy’s contribution. This course is a part of #CUHK #APIB #DigitalLeadershipSeries designed by a number of #digital experts and myself.

We also invited two top leaders, Stephen Leung #Pfizer and Joe Wan #Tricor in Hong Kong to share their experience in their digital leadership. Special thanks to Stephen and Joe, and look forward to learning from them.

We highly recommend corporate leaders, #HR practitioners, digital transformation professionals, innovation leaders and change agents to join the course. The upcoming class will be on Oct 12 and 13. Be HURRY to enroll if you are interested. More information and enrollment link can be found here.

Several key drivers of data innovation & culture for their organizations were in my f2f offline panel yesterday. Heartfelt thank to Edwin Hui #AccentureBessie Chong #EsquelSusanna Chiu #BonjourMaggie Yung #DBS.

#DataLiteracy
Here are my key takeaways:

1. The mindset of the top management on the urgency of empowering every employee is critical for #DigitalTransformation. DBS has trained >50% of their employees on data literacy with their CEO’s support.

2. AI not just automates our tasks but also releases us from tedious & dangerous tasks. Manufacturers like Esquel has made use of #data & #AI to make their staff happier, healthier & more efficient.

3. Start with the colleagues in key departments who are more reluctant to change & help them solve their problems using data. It will drive the company to become data driven.

4. Not just training is needed but also internal competition, collaboration with external #ecosystem, mixing colleagues from different units #Squad to do data projects, recognition, are important for culture & mindset change.

5. #Reskill & #Upskill colleagues on data literacy should be on the top priority for #HR to empower their colleagues in the #DigitalEconomy.

Thanks Catherine Chan #Kornerstone Andy Kwok #OpenCertHub to organize the forum.

#DBS, a leading Asia’s #bank, equips employees with skills to become everyday ‘Data Heroes.’ Over 16,000 employees (>50 of its workforce) have been trained in big data & data analytics in the last 2 years.

#Esquel, a leading garment & textile #manufacturer in the world, builds its data culture by organizing data hackathon.

#Bonjour, a leading #retailer in Asia, is pioneering #NewRetail with the power of big data.

#Accenture, a leading consulting firm, innovates with #AI & #BigData to empower human to collaborate with AI.

How about #HR#Marketing#Finance and #Accounting professionals? These leading professionals have already made use of data to amplify their brain power to achieve more.

March is a special month for women. In fact, we have many great female data leaders #WomenInTech as you can notice in our panels. Happy to see all genders and all professionals treat data literacy seriously these days. #Diversity & #DataDemocratization are critical for data#innovation indeed.

“Seeing is believing it”. I had another chance to do so today. I visited Fanny Chan of #ChinaEverbrightBank #中国光大銀行 in Hong Kong.

The bank is a great example of #HR #Innovation. Recently, they won 4 awards in the HR Awards 2020 organized by #CTgoodjobs. Congratulations again.
1. Employer of the Year
2. Best of the Best HR Star of the Year (Awardee is Fanny Chan)
3. Perfect Office Award
4. Best Change Leadership Strategy Award

I was one of the judges for the competition but could only read all the materials online but not offline. Today I really learned a lot more from Fanny & Mike Chen (CEO of the bank).

One thing that cannot be read from online well is the culture, passion & attitude of the bank. Their passion for improvement & the way of hosting me was impressive. Not just personalized greeting messages but also the whole journey of the visit. The message on their visual display “#Agility #Technology & #Ecosystem” was right fit for #DigitalEconomy. The amazing gifts were very thoughtful & useful. The digital accessories & innovative cups were wonderful. Really appreciate it.

Walking around, talking to people & visiting leading companies are very effective to learn new things & keep ourselves up to the market need. Will share more for my future visits. Stay tuned.

#Covid19 cannot slow down HK people to keep flourishing & moving forward. I was engaged in 6 amazing events organized by key HK partners in 1 single week. #Accounting #HR #FinTech #OpenSource #BIGDATA #EMBA. What a way to start 2021!

Really pleased to see healthy & happy friends online & f2f. Appreciate the efforts & passion of the organizers to make these happened. Thank you & keep it going. That is #HongKongSpirit, that is us.

Congratulate to all the awardees & thank to the forum participants.

Really like the award categories of the Best HR Awards 2020 #BestHRAwards2020 organized by #CTgoodjobs. They are innovative and inspiring. In particular, I like these categories:

Best GenZ Attraction Award
Best HR Analytics Strategy Award
Best in HR Digitalisation Award
Best Innovative HR Initiative Award
Best L&D Technology Implementation Award

I am pleased to see that these categories were all encouraging #HR to leverage more on #innovation and #technology to empower their companies, colleagues and even partners. It is an excellent direction towards the #DigitalEconomy.

I was so honoured to join the judging panel with all top HR leaders and professionals. I enjoyed to contribute my experience on innovation and technology to select the award winners this year. Learnt a lot from the award judges and the participating teams. Thank you.

Congrats to all of the winners like #DBSHK#BOCHK#ChowTaiFook#ChinaEverBrightBank#KPMG#OneDegree#SunLife#HKPC#ZungFu, just name a few. Well done. The trophies are just BEAUTIFUL. Find out more about the awardees and the categories here:

Special thank to CTgoodjobs team William Ho, Sherman ChatCindy ChanReo LamRegina Tam Natalie Fong Suky Cheung more.. Well done. Keep it going. 辛苦了,加油!

5 passionate and innovative teams from our CUHK Convoy MiniMBA programme have presented their “NextBigThing” projects today. The winning team not only won a marvellous award but also their project will have good potential to be a real project.
It was the most important part of the whole programme as each team has to capitalize what they learnt from the 10 modules of the programme & innovate like a startup. Rather than just training, it cultivates the intrapreneurship & innovation mindset & capabilities for the participants. It becomes a DNA of the staff & the company for sustainable competitiveness in the ever-changing DigitalEconomy.  
The programme include EmergingTechnology, DesignThinking, High Performance Leadership, CorporateGovernance, Strategy Investment Decisions, and more. I’m so grateful to have a chance to contribute, design, teach & coach the participants.  Look at how they summarized what they learnt on the white boards – impressive. Witnessing their changes & improvement is amazing. It has been 2 cohorts already & the 3rd cohort is on now. Keep it going, teams. You are all our champions.

China Human Capital Forum 2019 was successfully held in Yantai 烟台 in TsingTao China. 1,000+ CEO and HR professionals joined the forum. Keynote speakers were experts in digital transformation, future workforce, digital leadership, etc. It was my honour to be one of them to share my experience on #DigitalStrategy for Traditional Enterprise. Lesson learned is that there is an urgency to #Reskill our colleagues in the AI Era. CEO and HR of leading enterprises are well aware of the storm of #DigitalDisruption. They are proactively reskilling their colleagues to best capitalize what digital can offer them. One example is #AIAugmentation  #人智 where human work with  robots to gain competitive advantages over the laggards. These companies have created new AI positions and retrain their staff on AI BigData and DataQuotient to take up these new jobs. Have we reskilled yet?

Smarter Staff in Digital Economy Needs DQ on the top of IQ and EQ

What kind of #Competence do you need to be successful in Digital Economy? In this special feature of Talents Management, I, as the Chairman of OpenCertHub, have shared my view on the Digital Workforce and how we need to prepare ourselves so that we can sustain our competitiveness and marketability in the job market in the Digital Age. It will give insights to both HR and leaders on how to get themselves and their companies ready for the inevitable changes in the AI BigData world.
