The most basic portion of our four points of discussion is the need to continue and preserve the systems and operation models of administration behind our competitive strength. To accomplish this point, beside the need for consistently high-quality work, all staff members need to clearly understand each department’s functions, such as operation style, management strategy, and the factors and keys behind their success. This way, we can identify what results from talented business administration and operations.
In addition, we also invited Senior Professor, Dean Liu from the Chung Yuan Christian University's School of Management to closely examined our company's systems and framework of rules and regulations. TBMS' development and adjustments of future system structures were also examined. We have our management team to study at a 2-year EMBA program at Chung Yuan Christian University. These classes emphasize leadership skills, innovation, and the humanities.
This second portion is an introduction and analysis on how Confucian philosophy fits in with corporate culture, how we intend to string the two previously discussed portions together, so that we can ensure that the administration of Confucian benevolence can be preserved and last. Recently I witnessed Professor Ruihua Li explain good business practice and good leadership practice with "The Five Constants of Training Continuous Scholarly Businessman Leaders" (these are also our core values), the Seven Great Elements, and an evaluation from history. These lectures had a great influence on helping us search for the path to sustainable management practices, and I extracted the portions that are related to the principles of a scholarly businessman.
The company trains its staff according to a holistic whole person approach, and urges everyone to also pursue lifelong learning and put all of this into practice. This will give them goals to establish themselves in society, to pursue virtue, and to build a good life. In educating the whole person, we teach the necessary technical skills; additionally, we explicitly teach morality and virtuous behavior. Through the process of lifetime learning, staff members must ceaselessly work on improving their professional skills, which are further used to improve their own competitive strengths. Only then can we avoid being bested by our competition. We must train and develop our morality and virtue, and always do good work, taking small steps to continuously improve. Practice is also a key element behind lifelong learning. At all times we must remind ourselves to implement our learned technical skills into our work, and practice our lessons of virtue and morality onto our human relationships.
The company will build and become a platform to form professional management partnerships that we can pass on from generation to generation. Ownership is not passed on within the family, but shared and passed on with colleagues and coworkers. This is a win-win scenario for everyone, where those of great virtue will take charge and the company will benefit greatly for it.
These four steps will result in documents, rules, systems, etc. After their establishment, they will become guides towards the sustainable operation of the new scholarly businessman. In the hope of we can bring a positive impact to our industry and our society.
