Innovation is the gist of Blue Ocean Strategy. In an uncontested environment, we outperform by being creative. Slashing against each other is really an outdated strategy.
It similarly applies to education. Tan Kee Hian formulated " Polytechnic" University as one of the five Blue Ocean Strategies aiming to take Sibu to the next developmental cycle.
Tan Kee Hian's Strategy (3) for "Polytechnic" University is as follows:
Initial faculties include:
-Faculty of Business Administration
-Faculty of Applied Sciences
-Faculty of Technology
Candidates for Multi-disciplinary Centres for Development and Applications include:
-Institute of Active Ageing
-Institute of Agri-business
-Institute of Tourism and Hospitality
-Institute of Entrepreneurship
