The East Meets The West. Our #CUHKEMBA fellow students really experienced it in the last few weekends. Morning on digital and afternoon on Chinese wisdom.

I taught about corporate innovation and digital strategy. Most of today’s digital innovation and strategy wisdom and experience were rooted mainly from the US. Professor Sin #冼日明 taught about traditional Chinese wisdom #易經 that was originated from China. That’s the best of Hong Kong where we can make use of the best wisdom of both worlds. We have been doing our best to bring out the synergistic power of the East and the West.

Thanks for Professor Andrew Chan and Pong Yuen, Howard Lam of #CUHK #CUHKEMBA CUHK Business School CUHK EMBA to make these happened from the very beginning till now.

More details about the classes just over the last few weekends can be found here. Hope to see you soon in our classes and/or other occasions in our ecosystem.

Just completed teaching a highly engaging #CUHK #EMBA course on corporate innovation in the last few weekends. The main theme was #CorporateInnovation#Intrapreneurship#DigitalTransformation and #EmergingTechnology. My students are all elite leaders and executives from Hong Kong, Macau, Mainland China and overseas across various industries.

Really felt great as our fellow students really contributed to our collective learning. Also felt exhausted as all of us gave in a lot of effort to learn. Really appreciate the growth mindset and learning attitude of our students.

We had gone through a few key best practices and discussed a few real good case studies. This was a special milestone for me as well because I used my own freshly published case study (Nov 9, 2021) on #HSBC #OpenInnovation as one of the key cases to teach this class. Thanks for Daniel Chan Jaff Lau Ada L. Danielle T. and many others in HSBC and Ivey’s professor Hubert Pun to make this case possible. The case is now globally accessible by all major business schools through the world’s top case publisher #IveyPublishing. Here is the link if you would like to learn from it.

I also invited great innovative leaders from corporate and startup worlds to share their experience with my students. Really thank Austin R. Bryan, from #CLP , Kenny Sham from #LEGO and Harris SUN from #RaSpect. After all these, my students had a final project presentation to share their findings and recommendations to the company that they have chosen.

Great insights from my students. I am happy to see that my students came up with great insights and recommendations. I am also grateful that my experience sharings have empowered my students to manage innovation more effectively for their companies and ventures.

Thanks to my #CUHKEMBA teammates Pong Yuen, Howard Lam Chun So and supporting crew behind the scene for their support.

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.

#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.

Just finished a 2 days intensive class on “Strategic Management * Digital Transformation” for a group of elite executives in mainland China. Really appreciate their great learning attitude.

In particular, the excellent quote that one of my students showed in her photo – “今天不学习,明天变垃圾”. It means that, “If we don’t learn today, we will become garbage tomorrow.”

Though I had to conduct the class on Zoom from Hong Kong, all my students gathered physically in Shenzhen and engaged well with me. It worked fine and was much better for individual student to login in Zoom separately. You may want to try this setting.

Excellent teaching and learning experience in this weekend. Thank you so much for my students’ active participation and the amazing technologies.

What a rewarding 4 days together with my #CUHK #EMBA students! I took them through a very timely and critical intensive training on #innovation #strategy & #management. Our students are all senior executives from mainland #China including traditional companies and tech giants.

I have invited 4 guest speakers to share their corporate innovation experience with us. Thanks Eric Hui #ZurichInsuranceCharles Lam #FubonAkina Ho #GreatEagle and Damien Ko #G2000. Their sharings were insightful & practical. We all learned a lot from them. Thank you.

I used a few inspirational cases as the core for my class, such as, #Disney#Netflix#Marriott#Airbnb#Adobe#PingAn#Haier#Philips#Samsung#Booking.com, #3M#Amazon#Alibaba#Advantech#Walesgreen, etc.

Though we had to use Zoom for the training, the class participation from our students on our case discussion was no less than a #f2f class. Really impressed by the quality of my students’ questions, analysis, debates & suggestions. Thank you.

My students had a nice dinner in Shenzhen with lots of joy after the 4 days class. They were well deserved it. Hope to join them next time when there is no quarantine needed.

Happy Father’s Day for everyone!

Thanks to 2 of my great mentors
Pong Yuen, Howard Lam and Andrew Chan who have made our EMBA program impactful to many today’s top leaders in Hong Kong. We are proud of both of you. Happy New Year!

The world’s top 5 companies are #Platform in terms of Market Cap. They are #Microsoft, #Apple, #Amazon, #Alphabet, #Facebook, not the traditional leaders. Successful unicorns are mainly platforms like #Uber, #Airbnb I have designed a 2 days Platform Strategy & Breakthrough training program for executives to learn & unlock the potentials of platform business models for their companies. The training was done last week. The participants were from #FinancialServices, #Retail, #Telecom. We have discussed a few inspirational cases #Airbnb, #ZBJ, #XFire, #Qihoo, #Dianrong, #Quicken, #Adobe, #Nike, #Hema, etc. The participants learned about the best industry practices of platform like #NetworkEffect, #ChickenAndEgg, #Multihoming, #Disintermediation, #Monetization #Governance, etc. I have also invited Norman Tam from #Tencent & Samuel C.H. Wan from #Stockviva to share their wisdom to design, run, monetize, govern their platforms. It was very useful. To thank them & my students for a fruitful two days, everyone received my book #數碼力大提升 with my autograph. This course is a part of the #DigitalLeadershipSeries for Executive Program that I designed for #CUHK. Other courses include #AI, #Blockchain, #CorporateInnovation, #Entrepreneurship, etc. More here. https://lnkd.in/gZBZmjp
