Exhausted.Weekend is coming😅😃
A brand new year is coming. Let’s have a great start. My first open talk in 2021 will be on Jan 13. The theme of my sharing session is “Winning with #DigitalLeadership“.
In today’s digital age, every leader needs to be a digital leader. It is not just the job of #TECH guys but also a crucial competence that every leader of large to small companies should possess to seize the emerging opportunities in the digital economy, and keep your companies and yourselves relevant and competitive.
I will talk about 8 secret weapons of the digital leaders and their digital talent strategy in the session.
This forum is organized by #CUHKEMBA where we are providing a number of #CUHK #EMBA and #ExecutiveEducation courses on #CorporateInnovation, #Entrepreneurship and #DigitalTransformation to cultivate the next generation of leaders in the #DigitalEconomy. I will talk about it as well.
If you are interested, please register here. See you then.
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!
Today is a big big day for our Master’s students at #CUHK #BusinessSchool CUHK Business School – Masters because today is their graduation day. Congratulations to you all my fellow students for your marvelous accomplishment.
I am so grateful to have a chance to teach and make friends with some of you in my #EMBA, #MBA and #MiM classes on various #DigitalLeadership #Innovation #Entrepreneurship #FinTech #AI subjects.
You have completed an important milestone of your life journey. Keep up your passion of lifetime learning to cope with the ever changing world. Remember that your #DigitalLiteracy is the new language in the #DigitalEconomy. Keep it up, guys.
We “#LookForward” to hear from you and witness you to create more business and social impact to industries and societies in the road ahead. Congratulations again. Really proud of you all.
Thanks to our Dean’s leadership and all fellow faculties and admin colleagues. Pong Yuen, Howard Lam Grace Liang Andrew Chan.
Special thanks to Angel Ng #CEO #Citi to give a specular speech to our students. Find out more in my comments below.
Really glad to discuss with the key leaders and drivers of our #CUHK #EMBA programme Pong Yuen, Howard Lam and #MBA programme Grace Liang today. We had a fruitful chat on how we can further empower our current executive students and alumni with #DigitalLeadership, #Innovation, #DigitalTransformation, #Entrepreneurship and #Career. Stay tuned for more initiatives from both programmes in the coming year.
I also shared the insights from my book #數碼力大提升 with Howard and Grace, and presented a copy to them. Look forward to seeing you in the upcoming digital-related initiatives and classes from #CUHKEMBA and #CUHKMBA.
#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.
How do we #innovate when we are getting bigger? In the #DigitalEconomy, industry leaders cannot keep on doing what they have been doing. Even we have invested 15% or more of our sales revenue on R&D, it doesn’t mean we can continue winning & surviving. #DisruptiveBusinessModels & #EmergingTechnologies have already got into traditional industries & disrupted or even killed the leaders there.
How to formulate our #InnovationStrategy to compete & sustain our success? I am grateful to teach one of my favorite courses in #CUHK #EMBA on Zoom & shared my experience with top executives from mainland #China & #HongKong. Special thank to Prof Andrew Chan for giving me this opportunity. Key topics are #OpenInnovation #Intrapreneurship #Experimentation #DesignThinking #LeanStartup #AgileManagement & more.
We’ve gone through a series of cases #IDEO #BookingCom #Huawei #Xiaomi #GE #Adobe & certainly #TechGiants & #Unicorns. More importantly, I’ve invited #startup & #CorporateLeader as guest speakers to share their experience. Thanks to Harris Sun #Raspect, Matthew Chan #JardineRestaurantGroup, Andy Bien #HKAirportAuthority & Hugh Chow #ASTRI. We all learned a lot from them.
If you would like to learn more about #Strategic #Innovation #Management, I am happy to share more with you.
“Banking is necessary but banks are not” ( quote from Bill Gates ) is not just applied for the incumbents in banking industry but all leaders in traditional industries. Traditional companies are facing unprecedented challenges from 4 major forces in the Digital Economy. Many of them will not survive if they don’t act now & don’t do it right. Last week in Shanghai, I have shared my experience gained from consulting large incumbents & cultivating innovative startups. We talked about these 4 key types of competitors for traditional companies: 1. Tech Giants Amazon Alibaba 2. Unicorns Gogovan Klook 3. Traditional companies from other industries with great digital capabilities to cross over to your industry Volkswagon getting into insurance 4. Companies in your same industry but with better digital capabilities than you Strategy that we learned from Business School, MBA and EMBA still matters but may not be good enough to empower leaders to win & even survive in the Digital Age. We talked about how to formulate Digital Strategy, cultivate a Digital Workforce & work with Digital Colleague around us. More importantly, how to innovate & collaborate with startups. Will deliver this talk in Tsingtao, Taiwan, Malaysia & more Asia’s cities in the next few months. CU.
