Globalising MPC and Venturing into New Industries

Globalising MPC and Venturing into New Industries

Ir. Haji Arshad Haji Marsidi’s growth plan for MPC involved expansions into different industries, one of which was hospitality. Another is, entrepreneurship and small business development. Seeing the growth potential of the hospitality industry, Ir. Haji Arshad fought to get MPC deeply involved. Also, in conjunction with the collaboration between MARA and MPC, MPC developed a series of programmes suitable for the creation and development of Bumiputra entrepreneurs. His keen foresight led to the construction of a hotel owned by the organisation. The hotel, named Hotel Dayang, was located next to MPC’s headquarters and served as a hands-on training ground for hospitality-related trainings. Here, MPC trained SPM-leavers and students who needed a diploma, teaching them how to deliver excellent service in hospitality. These programmes were also popular with international students from other developing countries.

Ir. Haji Arshad Haji Marsidi Leading an Organisation for Exponential Growth

During Ir. Haji Arshad Haji Marsidi’s tenure, MPC was still a small organisation with only 40 employees. Despite this, the organisation’s training programmes were held in high esteem nationally and MPC’s officers were to conduct training to industry players all over Malaysia on how to improve their supervisory and management skills and boost their productivity. Having taken over Dato’ Abu Kassim’s role, Ir. Haji Arshad Haji Marsidi’s first challenge was to ensure MPC’s training programmes were relevant and up to date. The solution to this lie in making sure MPC’s officers were exposed firsthand to current knowledge and teachings from high-class international experts.

Work is Learning and Learning is the Work

Work is Learning and Learning is the Work

Goh is an advocate of hands-on learning and growing from personal experience. To be successful in corporate, one needs to know how to take theory-based knowledge and put it into practice. Doing so allows a person to truly comprehend the context surrounding an issue and solve it based on past experience and knowledge. In that sense, MPC’s officers were highly fortunate as opportunities to learn were rife within the organisation. It was not just acquiring knowledge but also experience. The job demands at MPC provided anyone the opportunity to practice the skills and knowledge they have learned. Then, in a cyclic effect, this knowledge is used to create new techniques that could be applied to new productivity problems and also create complete productivity ecosystems.
