Brief synopsis

How aware are you that DIGITAL transformation in the economy will add an estimated US$10 billion to Singapore's gross domestic product (GDP) and increase GDP growth at an annual rate of 0.6 per cent by 2021? Shall we take an offence or defence strategy towards this digital transformation? In this Learning Circle, we are going to study Chapter 3Strategic Offence (Chinese: 谋攻篇)to discuss the pitfalls of a “siege” in today’s context and how to apply the highest form of winning. You will also be equipped with the strategic and managerial competence of “wholeness” () and forward thinking (预测性思维) in managing real opportunities.


Full synopsis

According to a study published by tech giant Microsoft and market researcher IDC Asia on Feb 2018, DIGITAL transformation in the economy will add an estimated US$10 billion to Singapore's gross domestic product (GDP) and increase GDP growth at an annual rate of 0.6 per cent by 2021. How much do we stay relevant to this megatrend? What kind of approach do we engage to stay competitive?

Forrester in another publication - Nigel Fenwick and Ted Schadler (February 26, 2018). Digital Rewrites The Rules Of Business. The Vision Report In The Digital Business Playbook stated that “it’s your job as a digital business leader to apply the rules to engage, compete, and grow.” One key takeaway from this report is “Reinvent Your Business With Technology . . . Or Fade To Black”!

So, the question is, how do we play the game while digital rewrites the rules of business? Shall we deploy an offence or defence strategy?

The good news is, the above business challenges could be overcome by sharpening our saw in strategic and managerial competences. In the latest IAL Training and Adult Education Professional Competency Model (TAEPCM), “strategic/managerial competence”is the new and emerging critical skill set. It has been identified as the Horizontal Skills that will increase the Training and Adult Education (TAE) stakeholders’ competitive advantage.


About the Workshop

A unique CPD program which maximises its outcomes through an experiential learning approach. We get started by studying Chapter 3Strategic Offence (Chinese: 谋攻篇) of The Art of War by Sun Tzu.This chapter advises that winning a hundred battles is NOT the ultimate achievement. You will be exposed to the concept of “wholeness” () and forward thinking (预测性思维) in managing real opportunities. This will ultimately lead to an increase of the capability in decision-making.

This is a project supported by the LearnSG Seed Fund. "Every Day, A Learning Day"


This Learning Circle is initiated and facilitated by Lim Boon Piul (BP) an Entrepreneur and Creator of Sales Blueprint®.
