Developing 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 action.
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 graduates. 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. - editorial -
