CREATING INNOVATORS AT WOKPLACE

In 5 minutes, please
lend me your ears to listen what I am going to share with all of you.
And last but not
The Malaysian Fire
and Rescue Department of Perlis brings you MOHD NAZRULLAH BIN ABDUL AZIZ to
talk about CREATING INNOVATORS AT WOKPLACE.
Members of the floor,
An innovator in a general sense, is a
person or an organization who is one of the first to introduce into reality
something better than before. That often opens up a new area for others and
achieves an innovation. Therefore,
innovators are important in every organization in the world. Organizations
without innovators will be left behind by the competitors. How do we create
innovators at our workplace? In our organization? Here are some of the answers.
I will highlight three main measures for organizations to create innovators at
workplace. They are:
conducting awareness program
giving encouragement, and
The first measure to create innovators at
workplace is by conducting awareness programs in our organization. It is very
important for all employees to know about the goals and missions of the
organization for them to be innovative. The awareness programs should highlight
the importance of innovation in the organization as well as provide sufficient
information on the incentive that the staff will get if they are innovative.
Let me share with you some of the awareness programs organized to create
innovators at workplace. One of the programs is Kuala Lumpur Innovation Forum
or known as KLIF 2012. IT was jointly organized by MOSTI and Malaysian
Innovation Foundation (YIM). In this forum, high level speakers and
participants representing the public, private and civil sectors, and
academicians, share successful experiences and deliberate on related issues to
promote a global, regional and national agenda such as Towards Achieving an
Innovative Society Status and a High Income and Advanced Economy. By sharing
this knowledge, the employees will be more exposed to the innovation world
where finally they will get some ideas on how to innovate something that they
have at the moment at their workplace.
There are many more programs organized by the
government and private sectors in creating innovators at workplace such as
Science and Innovation Carnival, which was organized by MOSTI and KL World
Innovation Expo which was organized by NICE, YIM, BioTech Corp and National
The second measure in creating innovators
at workplace is by giving encouragement to the employees to innovate at their
workplace. One of the ways to encourage them is through awards. There are so
many awards created by many government agencies to encourage workers to be
innovative. For instance, National Innovation Award, CIPTA 1Malaysia Award, National
Young Scientist Award, National Technologist Award and many more. Let me
explain to you one of them, Piala CIPTA Award. Piala CIPTA Award is a nationwide
search for champions of innovation and airs on TV3 as a reality program called ‘Dengan
Inovasi, Yo!’ It starts with workshops before the competition phase and
culminates towards a final inter-state round. At the end, the winners of the
competition are announce and honored at a grand peer-to-peer awards ceremony.
By having this kind of competition, the employees will be more motivated to be
innovative. Other than that, incentives should also be given to the workers who
put a lot of effort in innovation. For example, the innovation should be taken
into consideration for the promotion of the staff. This is important that the
other staff will be more motivated to be innovative so that they can be
promoted faster. In my department, Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department for
example, Creative and Innovative Group, also known as KIK is really encouraged
by the superiors especially the General Director, YAS Dato’ Wan Mohd Noor
Ibrahim. There is a competition among Creative and Innovative Groups starting
with Zone level, followed by State and National Level. This effort will enable
staff at every level to get involve in innovating something related to their
daily operation routines. This is also encouraging the staff to be involved
with research and design.
Another measure to create innovators at
workplace is through organizational learning. This is very important to instill
knowledge sharing culture across organizations. Agencies like Malaysian
Innovation Foundation (YIM), Malaysian Innovation Agency and Ministry of
Science, Technology and Innovation of Malaysia (MOSTI) are some of the agencies
that are willing to assist and facilitate any organizations in innovation.
These bodies will help in sharing the innovation culture, instill the
awareness, understanding and increase the commitment among employees in their
effort to acculturate innovation at workplace. By having the experienced
facilitators from the right agencies will make our organization more rooms for
innovation to improve our delivery system of our products and services. This
will also provide opportunities for inventors to create network with other
inventors from other organizations, potential investors and relevant
stakeholders such as government agencies and corporate companies.
My fellow audience,
I think that’s all I have for now. I have
explain the three ways of creating innovators at workplace, which are
conducting awareness program
giving encouragement, and
Oh ya, I forgot to ask you something.
Can you imagine what is going to happen to
the world without innovators? No cars, no computers, no mobile phones… will
remain in the stone age where we’re not wearing anything.
