Thanks to Joe Wan, CEO of #Tricor, for his experience sharing on talents cultivation in the digital era. Also, appreciate  for delivering the workshop on Leadership and Workforce Transformation in the Digital Era Programme. It was a part of our Digital Leadership Series for Executives initiated and designed by me and a number of industry experts and professors for #CUHK.

Here are a few key takeaways from Joe’s sharing.

1. How important is “#WHY” and “#PURPOSE“.
We have to help our colleagues know why he or she is here and how important and relevant their contribution is to the company and themselves. If that alignment works well, people will not just stay but also do their best in their jobs.

2. Listen to all levels of employees
Willing to listen to different levels of staff and answer all kinds of questions directly from staff from levels down will earn trust and pick up ideas that senior management can never think of.

3. Transform every employee to be a #startup
Encouraging #intrapreneurship and innovation from the bottom also encourage talents to join you and stay and grow with the company. Joe has supported their teammates to open a cafe which is now in their building and other places.

4. Take exit interview seriously
Not only finding out more about why a colleague leaves, but also offering staff, who are leaving, a final chance to stay. Joe said in the Exit Interview, “If you stay, I can waive the advanced notice for your next resignation if any.” That sincerity is really building another level of trust even the staff finally left. Alumni groups can be very powerful these days as ecosystem collaboration is the key to success in the digital era.

5. Respect each other
Joe asked and enforced every manager to treat their staff with respect. For instance, it is fine for a manager to shout at their staff but never one stands up and the other sits down. A simple gesture means a lot.

All these tips applied well in particular to the young generation. I learned a lot from Joe and Teddy. To thank Joe, I also shared a copy of my book #數碼力大提升 to him.

The Hong Kong Corporate Innovation Index programme #HKCII co-organized by #CUHK and #HKGCC with the support from key industry leaders has been progressing well. We have invited leaders in town to join our pilot study yesterday. More background of the #CorporateInnovationIndex:

The pilot study aimed to collect feedback from the leaders on the design of our survey which is going to send to hundreds of companies to study their innovation. The preliminary design of the survey was a result from our literature review and direct consultation sessions and focus groups with close to 50 large to small companies. Really thank to the inputs from these participated leaders and executives.

Apart from the discussion with the guests yesterday on the survey design, we also invited Ir. Andrew Young #SinoGroup to share his corporate innovation experience. We had Watson Chan #HKGCC and Professor WM Cheung gave opening speeches. In addition, we had a panel discussion with #startup, well-established enterprise and #SME including Andy Ann #NDN, Horace Chu #Gammon and Mandy Chan #Frutodor. Appreciate for all their valuable sharings.

What’s the next? We will continue to collect feedback from leaders, practitioners and researchers to revise our survey design and finalize the constructs and measures of the survey. Stay tuned!

Big thank to our guests, friends and partners who joined our pilot study yesterday. Eunice Chan Anson Bailey (eMBA) Peter Chan Chris Au Young Teddy Liu Eugene Hsia Chris So Matthew Chan Janssen Chan FCPA (Aust.) Patrick S Lee Dominic Chan and many others. Appreciate the effort and support from our CUHK #APIB and HKGCC teammates.

It included well established company Dr. Ted Suen, MH #MTR, vibrant #FinTech #InsurTech #Startup Michael Kwan Yu Chan #Bowtie and leading Cloud Service provider #AWS  .

It was a very insightful discussion. We touched on internal buy in, Capex and Opex changes in adopting Cloud, governance, partner selection, outsourcing strategy, SME challenges, etc. Thank you for all our panelists’ insightful and practical experience sharing.

#TECH in #China becomes a hot topic in the West these days. I have conducted an online class on “Emerging TECH in China” to the fellow executive students from one of the top universities in Europe, the #ImperialCollege Imperial College London. It is a part of the one week program of #CUHK The Chinese University of Hong Kong to the Imperial College Business School in #London.

I talked about the Tech landscape, the #startup #ecosystem and #CorporateInnovation in China. I covered hot topics like the foreign market and investment strategy, self-reliance capabilities, #5G#AI#Semiconductors, Corporate #intrapreneurship, talents, #GreaterBayArea#HangSengTechIndex, tech giants returning from #Nasdaq to Hong Kong and Shanghai #StockExchanges, etc.

I used a number of cases like #Baidu#Alibaba#Tencent#ByteDance#TikTok#AntFinancial#SenseTime#PingAn#Haier#Huawei#BYD#XiaopengMotors#Hema#Xiaomi#Qihoo360#SequoiaCapital#IDGCapital#MatrixPartners as examples to show the strength and potential risks of China Tech.

The Imperial College’s students showed great interest on this topic, were engaged well and asked lots of sensible questions. I also learned a lot from their views and feedbacks as well. Thank you so much for their active participation.

#Platform is the KING. The world’s leading companies are running Platform business. SMEs are being replaced by large & small platforms from #startups. How can we compete in #DigitalEconomy?

Why are platforms so powerful? Can we or should we be a platform? How to build, cultivate, operate, govern & sustain a platform profitably? What are capabilities, culture & tech needed? More importantly, what is the best-kept secret of a winning platform?

To master all these, please don’t miss my class “Platform Revolution & Breakthrough” at #CUHK Biz School Asia-Pacific Institute of Biz on Oct 14-15, 2020.

I have talked about Platform in my #EMBA #MBA #Tech #Innovation #Entrepreneurship classes & seminars plus in my new book #數碼力大提升 (Boost up Your Digital Power) https://lnkd.in/g4_RWBE. I will explore deeper in this course with #international & #local cases.

#Corporate #SME #Startup leaders & executives are keen on the course & have already enrolled it. Good news is that the course is eligible for the govt #RTTP scheme & the participants may get #subsidy from the scheme but have to enrol the course quick (2 weeks b4 the class starts) to be qualified.

“Can traditional enterprises stay competitive in the Age of AI?” & “Can we stay ahead of the curve in the Age of AI?”. These are the two key questions that today’s business leaders, executives & professionals in traditional & even technology companies are asking themselves.

My #CUHK #BusinessSchool #APIB teammates & I have put together a 2 days executive education program “The Power Duo of AI and Big Data”. It aims to answer the 2 key questions above. Find out more here.

The format of the program is a combination of lectures, case studies, group discussion, demo and hands-on, fireside chats with top business executives and AI leaders from corporates, #startups & #SMEs.

“Keep #Learning” or “#Reskilling” is one of the smartest ways to spend our time under the #Covid19. Good news is that this program is supported by the HK government #RTTP scheme. Participants may apply for the funding support & will pay only 1/3 of the fee.

The schedule is set on Aug 19 and 20, 2020. Hopefully it can be delivered in our campus classroom but it is also ready for a hybrid mode of campus and online Zoom. See you there.

It is absolutely critical to have leading manufacturers,  financial services institutes &  startups to collaborate together to co-create innovative solutions to solve customers’ pain points & come up with new business models to seize the market opportunities in the Digital Economy. Here is a great example in  Hong Kong.  FHKI Federation of Hong Kong Industries Startup Council partnered with  HSBC has organized a STARS programme to select the best of the best startups to add values to the Toys & Electronics manufacturing industries. https://lnkd.in/fV79SXT Today, we have done the vetting exercise. It was my honour being the Chairman of today’s judging panel & Principal Mentor of the programme.
