In a rapidly changing and globalized world, enterprises worldwide are struggling with innovation to set themselves apart from the competition. Prof Simon Tam started his lecture sharing that despite numerous theories out there about organizational management, they do not necessarily coach how companies can make more money. To the enraptured audience, Prof Simon Tam then dispensed his wisdom and insights on the 8 forms of business success.
His vast knowledge and witty delivery, ranging from the rise and fall of mobile phone companies to “opium money,” interactively engaged the participants as he explained the new paradigm of a discipline beyond management, based on recurring patterns in entrepreneurial success.
