KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 (Bernama) -- Skills and intellect must be fostered
among Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) staff to encourage creativity in their
services, said Armed Forces Chief General Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zain.
He said they also needed to pursue the education and training processes
continously as they were sources of creative and innovative ideas.
"They need to diversify the activities for innovation acculturation, such as
encouraging the establishment of innovative and creative groups that will
provide opportunities to the armies to resolve problems or improve delivery
service," he said in his speech at the launch of the MAF Handbook of Innovation
Culture at the Defence Ministry here today.
Also present were Army Chief Gen Tan Sri Zulkifli Zainal Abidin, Air Force
Deputy Chief Lt Gen Datuk Roslan Saad and Navy Deputy Chief Vice-Admiral Datuk
Mohammed Noordin Ali.
Zulkifeli said MAF should be critical and constructive in their
responsibilities to find creative and innovative solutions, and also dare to
experiment with new working methods.
He said the MAF management at every level should give priority in success
management, including reward, appreciation and recognition to individuals and
teams, to ensure excellence in the organisations.
