MCMC, Huawei Malaysia unveil digital talent development plan

CYBERJAYA: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), in collaboration with Huawei Technologies (M) Sdn Bhd (Huawei Malaysia), has launched a talent development programme called the “Digital leadership excellence programme: Navigating the tech frontier”.

The initiative is aimed at empowering leaders across industries and the public sector with essential skills and knowledge, enabling them to spearhead digital transformation within their organisations, according to MCMC chairman Tan Sri Mohamad Salim Fateh Din.

He pointed out that the collaboration with Huawei Malaysia would help the commission achieve its goal of producing digital leaders who are able to improve their understanding and skills in the field of technology and leadership. “In addition, all the knowledge gained through the eight-month programme will be able to benefit all participants to progress in their respective careers and fields,” he told the media after the launching event at Huawei Malaysia global training centre here yesterday.

Meanwhile, Huawei Malaysia chief executive officer Simon Sun said the programme would offer a comprehensive blended learning approach, including online learning, workshops, participation in conferences, practical attachments, a capstone project at Huawei Malaysia, as well as a seven-day industry visit to China.

He said leaders of organisations, ministries, and academia should understand the various domains of technology to drive its adoption and leverage its transformative capabilities to create better outcomes, regardless of sector or industry.

“The programme, formulated by Huawei Malaysia and MCMC, is here to assist in making that possible.

“What this programme hopes to achieve is to equip the current generation of organisational leaders with a deeper understanding of emerging technologies, to gain additional technological skills, and to successfully apply this knowledge and skills to improve operational efficiencies,” he said. — Bernama
