THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE IN SOUTH EAST ASIA
Across South East Asia, “traditional” management structures are still the rule rather than the exception: process-bound, with linear, silo-based paradigms. The skills required to operate such structures, involving fairly static or straightforward directives – “traditional” management – may have been effective in the old industrial economy, and in the region’s heavily bureaucratic, government and military structures.
But as South East Asia undergoes rapid economic development, political change, and cultural and generational shifts – from India to Indonesia – from Sri Lanka to Myanmar – fresh complexities require nimbler corporations and better leaders.
