Tan Kee Hian's Capability (1) involves change of Sibuians' mindset. In short, in taking Little Foochow to the next developmental cycle, we need to adopt a Critical Blue Ocean Mindset.
Having touched on Changing Mindset, Values and Beliefs, Kee Hian then moved on to Capability (2) which is Systematic, Error-free Execution.
Tan Kee Hian in the previous two talks in Sibu ("Outlook for Sibu" at MPI in 2008 and "The Future of Sarawak from A Christian Perspective" at The 9th Methodist Convention in June this year) that I attended laid great stress on execution. During the teh tarik meet with some local bloggers, Kee Hian particularly quoted Singapore as a fine example of having excellent execution.
In his elaboration of Systematic, Error-free Execution, Tan Kee Hian pointed out:
1. Not just fast - a well-known trait of Sibu people
2. Not just "Malaysia boleh"
3. But also smart, precise (error-free) and reliable
4. "Imperfect execution" is a serious national shortcoming of Malaysia
5. Case examples:
-Malaysian Immigration Department
-Din Tai Fung Restaurant
