Programme Leader:
Mr Ong Teong Wan

The ability to recognize and solve problems remains a universal skill at all levels of management. The effectiveness of a manager or a professional/technical trouble-shooter is determined by how fast and how well the managerial/professionsl/technical person can pin-point the real cause of a variance and the creative solutions used to resolve a problem.
