Impact of the LEAN Management Process
LEAN project has helped the company create an SOP for the customer service workers and the cashiers to reduce the finding time and make the inventory management easy and manageable. The team members also mutually agreed on creating a standard manual of 5S practice to guide the business operation at PTAF. It will then be used at three central locations- small equipment store, payment counter and electrical store. The 5S practice has improved the in-store environment and storage system, reducing the lead time in the selling process and inventory management. PTAF has made significant progress in its operations after the implementation of the LEAN program. Through Project 1, the company made tremendous progress in lead time where prior to LEAN implementation, it needed approximately 34 minutes to complete a whole selling task. After implementing LEAN, it only needs 27 minutes which brings the total reduction to 21 percent. The Process Efficiency and First Time Quality rate also increase from 60 percent and 0.95 to 63 percent and 0.98, respectively.
Leading with Guidance and Experience
Jasni spent 9 years as a Regional Head in Sabah, overseeing MPC’s progress and its AJV Unit which dealt with JV programmes and also linked MPC to international organisations. Being Regional Head exposed him to the marketing side of the programmes as well as organising various seminars and training courses for foreign participants. Jasni’s excellence in his work gave MPC confidence in Jasni’s leadership abilities which is why, in 2002, he was promoted to Director of MPC’s Corporate Division. Unlike his previous position, Jasni’s new position placed him in charge of procurement and payment processes which meant that he was soon managing various levels of staff that spanned from executives to support staff.

Leading for the Business and People
As for Mah Lok’s leadership style, one might describe the former director-general as a “people-centric” person with good governance. The concept of governance and leadership are intertwined, where both are critical for the achievement of MPC objectives. Having good governance enables a leader to be responsive to the present and future needs of the organisation, exercise prudence when it comes to setting policies and making decisions while also ensuring the best interests of stakeholders. Throughout his tenure, Mah Lok found it important to have good governance as it sets up one as a well-intentioned leader who can be relied on for his transparent, responsive, effective and inclusive manner of leading. It was no surprise that Mah Lok had a reputation as a mentor-like figure and hands-on leader who would guide his staff throughout projects. Ever keen to share his experiences with his team, he would help them form insight and develop their own processes from his own experiences.
