The Leadership 4.0 Portfolio in Malaysia demonstrates Oxford’s ability to provide Corporate Education that creates shareholder and stakeholder value, at scale across the globe, and continues our work with governments to accelerate public policy execution and national competitiveness. Malaysia is adopting an enlightened and proactive approach to dealing with emerging challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, recognising the importance of life-long learning, and the value of innovative educational interventions that drive outstanding performance at the level of the individual, the business, and the nation.’
Participants will represent leading blue chip organisations from across general industry, and are expected to be C-Suite level influencers from leading Malaysian and ASEAN organisations. They will bring valuable insights to proceedings through discussions, network building and shared insights.
Harnessing the deep experience of Oxford Saïd in areas of ‘Industry 4.0’, strategy, futures, leadership, operational excellence and organisational design, we have designed a portfolio of leading-edge and relevant programmes that will enable Malaysian professionals to develop the insight, knowledge and foresight needed to take their organisations and enterprises to the next level and contribute to the future success of the Malaysian economy.
The Leadership 4.0 portfolio initially comprises three main elements:
The Oxford SME Exponential Learning Lab has been designed specifically for leaders in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to develop solutions to the challenges and opportunities presented by a complex mix of technological and social advances, geopolitical changes, established and emerging markets, and an increasingly mobile talent pool. Key to this programme is the objective of creating impact at scale. Between 100 and 150 SME leaders will attend each week-long programme in Oxford, with the aim of developing individuals at the same time as shaping the future SME ecosystem that Malaysia needs for success.
The Oxford Leadership 4.0 Programme is aimed at senior leaders in large corporations, multinational and international companies. It will transform their understanding of the critical role that leadership plays at the individual, organisational and systemic level in the context of the fourth industrial revolution and the advent of ‘Industry 4.0’.
In addition, Oxford Saïd will bring subject-matter experts to Malaysia for a series of Masterclasses on key themes including the future of work, brand and innovation.
