Dr Jacob George – AJ Should Not Be Made A Scapegoat For Other People’s Blunders!

Will blaming this international tragedy on one head and his resignation change the manner certain cross sections of Malaysians abuse what is a national asset?

Is this organization and business entity totally bloated in staff and the Unions having very strong cables to politicians and powerful individuals in Malaysia?

Are unqualified individuals been employed and those with political cables fast tracked up the promotion tiers and chains of command?

Are there abuses of benefits and privileges that is beholden to the individual instead of to the position until their departure?

Are there supplies and procurement contracts that are engraved in stone that does not make economic or business sense in this age and time?

Say a contract for over 25 years?

Are there contracts been given to families and connections of past Malaysian Prime Ministers?

What about that controversial caterer’s contract the world is talking about?

Any truth in them?

What about having that common touch to be accessible to the consumers the world over and in time of urgency?

What about a loyalty program – are they really reflecting appreciation to the consumers for their loyalty to the brand or just cosmetics in nature?

What about a loyalty service to the brand – are loyal dedicated staff been compensated accordingly?

Or does politics, race and cables decide promotions?

What about the hiring or appointment of senior management staff, board members and policy makers?

To me in short, hiring a name-brand CEO from outside the company who fails is usually a disaster.

The board of directors looks like a group of idiots, and this sad drama only reinforces the increasingly common perception that CEOs are overpaid and that executives and board members are ultimately looking out for their own interests, not the interests of the company.

I am not suggesting that organizations should always hire internal candidates.

Obviously, there have been cases where external CEOs made a huge difference — IBM, for instance — but external candidates come with extremely high risk.

Talent managers should develop an internal successor if at all possible, if only because the need to look outside sends the wrong message about an organization’s leadership development capabilities.

Companies like Malaysian Airlines should ask leaders at all levels to develop talent.

Do we have our own talent embryos?

Every manager has to answer the question, “If you were hit by a bus tomorrow, who could take your place?”

When you, the CEO or senior-level executive, cannot develop your own successor, it indicates you have not been practicing what you preach.

Do you want to send a message that you have not succeeded in something you’ve been asking front line supervisors to do for years?

Yes – heads should roll but the union is barking up the wrong tree!

It is certainly not AJ’s head but others, who from time immemorial have used, abused, raped and acted as scavengers over a national asset – as ‘their own family property!’

I will be saying more in the coming days in my blog and media – but for the record – I think AJ has done remarkably well in view the circumstances (both in the public domain and that which is not) and he should continue until such time, he feels the need for another challenge!

That must be his personal decision and not by been intimidated and defamed!

It must not be because some masquerading ‘hypocrites and pseudo politicians’ are trying to abuse this unfortunate episode of enormous proportions for a hidden clandestine and evil motive and scheme which serves only themselves as always!

The unions all 6 or 7 of them should ask themselves – are they not part and parcel of the organization?

Have they changed their work and business culture and are they themselves competent to fit to the changing climate that has resulted in many of new airline companies showing so much profits and success because they are not subsidy minded, cutting corners and bleeding the company for their own personal and private interest?

And now using this unfortunate episode of enormous proportions for a hidden clandestine and evil motive and scheme which serves only themselves in wanting to get rid of a person who dared to stand up to them and their nonsense?
