Congratulations Challenger Concept (M) Sdn Bhd for the successful release of the 9th Edition of Training Guide Malaysia!

The Government, in the Ninth Malaysia Plan, has identified five key thrusts or enablers as catalysts to propel Malaysians to a higher trajectory in this global village. The development of talent and human capital through training and development of Malaysians is imperative towards achieving the nation’s mission.

The Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has said that Malaysia is in her mid-point of the journey towards 2020 and is already experiencing the impacts of globalisation. The future ahead will be more perilous and demanding of her people. So, Malaysians need to deal with greater and rapid changes in such environment.

Therefore, it is imperative that we become more fl exible and versatile in all endeavours to remain relevant and competitive.

The impact of globalisation, Internet connectivity, rapid communication and borderless trade phenomena, the leveraging of knowledge through knowledge sharing and management, and self-directed e-learning offer further evidence of the speed and scale of global connectivity and accelerated learning of people that is taking place verywhere. The world is now a global village. Hence, the future business environment will be challenging for the uninitiated and will demand greater management learning, competencies and leadership in managers of today and tomorrow-if their enterprises and organisations are to be resilient, relevant and rewarding.

Towards this end, the Malaysian Institute of Management (MIM) is supportive of the Government and the Ninth Malaysia Plan will continue to be innovative in our training and development programmes to prepare the present and future generations of Malaysian managers to be able to competently handle and manage these new dynamic challenges- to navigate our way- to compete successfully and to achieve our Malaysia 2020 vision of becoming a developed nation.
