TALENT MANAGEMENT & SUCCESSION PLANNING REGIONAL CONFERENCE 2017

Greetings,

One of the most important decisions companies make is simply whom they appoint as managers, Gallup has found. Yet Gallup’s analytics suggest they usually get it wrong: Companies fail to choose the candidate with the right talent for the job 82% of the time.

Zenith’s Talent Management & Succession Planning conference brings together HR heads, Directors, CPOs, people & culture, communications and research professionals to discuss the latest practices, insights and the most innovative approaches to help leaders select, manage and develop talents to improve performance, both for the individual and the organisation. We’ll be combining case studies from leading organisations from a range of sectors with best practice tips from our team of talent management & succession planning specialists.

From acquisition, development, culture in the organisation, employee behaviour, productivity, retention to leadership mentoring we aim to cover the many ways in which an organisation can manage their talent pool successfully.

On behalf of the entire team, I look forward to meeting you in October!

Regards,
Vathana Chandrasegaran

Header Corporate Governance May 2017

BUILDING A ROBUST CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

As global markets become more exposed to widespread regulatory impacts and a diverse stakeholder base, greater reliance and accountability pressures are being placed on the Board. Effective corporate governance promotes the efficient and legal use of resources and should identify managers who do not put scarce resources to efficient use, or who are incompetent or -- at the extreme -- corrupt.

The need for better oversight requires the Board to adapt through technology and independent reporting channels such as compliance and risk.  In addition to the pace of regulatory change, Boards internally are being challenged by diversity pressures, the need for new technical skills to deal with growing risks, and cultural and ethical conflicts and issues.

This program has been designed to provide a wide range of recent cases in Malaysia and abroad, research and publications from around the world, governance issues and dilemmas will be explored through a range of learning activities,  including classroom, multimedia presentations, scenario analysis of case studies, group simulations and role plays.

The course outline is tailored only for those already practicing Corporate Governance. Challenges faced by different departments, will be highlighted and will be discussed during the workshop.

This workshop will focus on the key issues of Corporate Governance and participants will:

  • Understand what the new developments in Corporate Governance mean for your business
  • Discuss emerging Corporate Governance influencers and stakeholders
  • Experience how changing Board dynamics affect corporate culture and performance
  • Understand how to carry out a Corporate Governance Analysis
  • Learn the latest techniques in resourcing a Corporate Governance unit
  • Understand how Boards could fail
  • Discover tools to assist the Board and Corporate Governance unit

 

Header Managing Succesful Projects May 2017 (1)

MANAGING SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS

Projects are on the rise in most industries in Malaysia, taking the current economic conditions into consideration. In many cases unfortunately, projects have been abandoned, mostly due to shortage of funds. What is seen obviously is only in the construction industry. The fact is, most industries face the similar situation. Sadly our oil and gas industry has been most affected, as we are aware of.

The root causes of an unsuccessful project may not necessarily be because of the plunging economy. Managing a project would mean to be able to complete a project successfully despite the conditions of the country.

This workshop will benefit practitioners who wish to creatively apply their technical expertise to manage real world projects. It will also be a great tool for a day – to – day business management.

Key benefits of attending Managing Successful Projects:

  • A four-phase process; focusing the project, designing the project, implementing the project and transferring control (closing)
  • Step-by-step framework for immediate implementation back in the office
  • Key technical practices and issues relating to the four project management phases
  • “Human Dynamics” which are critical success factors in project management
  • Effective project monitoring strategies

MANAGING CONTRACT CLAIMS, VARIATIONS and DISPUTES

Did you predict the financial crisis of 2008? Or the scale of the ebola outbreak in West Africa? Or the drastic falls in oil prices since early 2014? Or the Arab Spring in 2011? Or dramatic changes in taxation or other government policies affecting your deals? For example, did your contracts anticipate and deal with the introduction of GST in Malaysia on 1 April 2015? Many did not, and we are now seeing a number of protracted, disruptive and costly disputes to determine who picks up the bill.

Over the lifespan of a contract, it is almost inevitable that changes will occur, particularly as the "internet of things" brings massively increased and accelerated data, fundamentally altering the way in which contracts are managed. Changes are easier to manage when they have been planned for. However, you cannot foresee everything that might affect your contract.

Our first challenge is to identify potential changes that could affect the performance, viability or profitability of a commercial agreement. Your next challenge is to ensure that your contracts contain clear provisions to deal with change, as well as clarifying the parties’ responsibilities, roles and action to be taken in any given situation.Those entrusted with managing, operating and advising on contracts must understand how the procedures will work in practice.

A recent international survey on contract management identified change management terms among the most frequent sources of claims or disputes. Clauses dealing with price changes topped the list. It is therefore important that you understand how contract terms can be used to manage and resolve disputes. This course will help you to consider the ways in which claims and disputes can be managed, both informally and formally in accordance with the terms of the contract.

The course is designed and delivered by a leading consultant with significant experience of negotiating and drafting commercial agreements as well as advising on dispute resolution and contract termination. Michael will ensure that you not only understand the law and regulation but also appreciate the commercial issues relating to change management, contract variation and dispute resolution. He will use realistic case studies as well as actual cases that have been resolved by the courts.

Key benefits of attending Managing Contract Claims, Variations and Disputes:

  • Discover how to use counter claims to safeguard your interests when claims arise
  • Implement and manage contract variations successfully to avoid disruptions and delays in your contracts
  • Find out if you are entitled to initiate contract variations and which contractual party should bear the costs for the changes to the contract
  • Resolve your contractual disputes by identifying the causes of disputes and utilizing dispute management and negotiation strategies
  • Assess the best alternative dispute resolution you should utilize when your contractual disputes become too complex
  • Master crucial strategies and best practices when resolving disputes surrounding commercial contracts through legal cases

BUILDING A ROBUST SAFETY CULTURE

The ASCNI Human Factors Study Group define health and safety culture as:
‘The product of individual and group values, attitudes, perceptions, competencies, and patterns of behaviour that determine the commitment to, and the style and proficiency of, an organisation’s health and safety management. Organisations with a positive safety culture are characterised by communication founded on mutual trust, by shared perceptions of the importance of safety and confidence in the efficacy of preventative measures”.

A number of major accidents such as The Deepwater Horizon, The Herald of Free Enterprise, Piper Alpha and Chernobyl have been as a result of organisation having poor safety cultures. In the BBC film about the Piper Alpha Disaster Dr Tony Barrel, the former Head of UK HSE Offshore Safety Division commented:

“I wouldn't put it (Piper Alpha) above or below other disasters, there is, actually, an awful sameness about these incidents. They’re nearly always characterised by lack of forethought, lack of analysis and nearly always the problem comes down to poor management. It’s not just due to one particular person not following a procedure or doing something wrong. You always come back to the fact that things are sloppy, ill organised and unsystematic (up and down the organisation).”

Every organisation has a safety culture – some are better than others though. Why is this the case? This training course will identify why some organisations have a more robust health and safety culture than others.

Symptoms of poor safety culture include:

  • Widespread routine procedural violations
  • Failure to comply with the organisations safety management system
  • Management decisions that put production or cost before safety

To achieve improvements in health and safety culture the following ‘drivers’ of effective safety culture will be explored including:

  • Management commitment
  • Management visibility
  • Communication
  • Employee participation
  • Inspection (including behavioural safety)

Attending the Zenith Business Excellence 2 day health and safety culture will allow delegates to understand where the safety culture maturity is within their organisations and identify the key factors that will enable it to improve. Participants will be encouraged to look at the positive examples of safety culture and how these can be encouraged within their organisations. This workshop will help delegates to develop a positive safety culture in their organisation through:

 Making your workforce intrinsically interested in health and safety.
 Getting people to do things naturally without having to be told.
 This will produce a lasting change within the business

This workshop is suitable for organisation and a large number of business sectors including manufacturing, construction, oil and gas and service sectors.

Additional assistance will be provided to delegates after the course on measuring the safety culture within their organisation and improving it by setting up a safety culture survey, interpreting results and putting a strategy together for improvement that will be carried out via email or skype.
