the Expert Skills
and Ethics of Managers
We asked Mr Adam Liška, a representative of the newly
established Czech Management Association in Ostrava, about
the mission and aims of the organization in the development
of enterprise in the Moravian-Silesian Region. He has earned
business and managerial experience as a company executive
at Bekaert and kindly shared his ideas with us.
How can the association contribute to the
implementation of innovations in the region?
The association in this region intends to develop
the managerial elite, who are currently experiencing
a radical transformation in the new industrial quartercentury. The changes are bringing more digitization,
automation, and new types of innovation which we now
can hardly imagine.
The target and mission of our club is therefore to get
managers ready for these changes and to provide
opportunities to share and efficiently implement such
changes in the production facilities and bring them into
Mr Liška, what exactly is the Czech Management
Association, and what is its role in the further education
of top managers in our region?
The Czech Management Association is the one and
only institution of its kind in the Czech Republic which
organizes managers responsible in their roles as leaders,
and which relates the traditions of modern management
with both experienced and beginning managers.
The aim of the association is to follow and promote
modern management trends, and to search for the model
managerial elite through the prestigious national contest,
Manager of the Year.
The Czech Management Association in the MoravianSilesian Region intends to serve managers, share reports
on their positive performance, improve operational
excellence, and enhance managerial potential.
Our activities will focus on the strategic development
of the Moravian-Silesian Region and making a remarkable
contribution to a better future.
What is the level of technical education necessary
in your enterprise?
Generally speaking, the level of technical education in our
region is very high concerning our secondary technical
school students, and it is especially great with university
Our region can also boast an impressive technical
and industrial history, a good foundation for future
generations. Nevertheless, trends in the technical
industries have recently changed so much that we
often must go back to preparing the young generations
better. This is why we consider technical education to be
a serious responsibility, and we address present students
by showing them the charms and beauty of a technical
and industrial education.
This idea will be among the crucial mottos of the
Czech Management Association in Ostrava, because
the development of the managerial elite and sharing
their experience with the younger generations will shape
the development of our region.
Thank you for the interview.
