Academy Award’s nominee movie “Moneyball” was based on a book titled “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game” – a true story written by Michael Lewis - about the Oakland Athletics baseball team and its general manager Billy Beane. Its focus is the team's analytical, evidence-based, sabermetric approach to assembling a competitive baseball team, despite Oakland's disadvantaged revenue situation (source: Wikipedia). Beane turned the failing low-budget baseball team into a winning one, using the power of statistical analysis. The movie starred Hollywood heavyweight Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill.
The movie’s focus story is what exactly inspired the seminar titled “Learn Balanced Scorecard from Moneyball” – organised by Cheng & Co – which was held last Wednesday, 9th August 2017, here at GASpace. Of course it wasn’t about baseball, but on how strategic management tool can help organisation stand out amongst competitors. Balance Scorecard uses data analysis to achieve results such as enhance performances of employees, increase cost efficiencies, and improve client satisfaction to achieve your goals and individual KPIs.
With a packed house here at GASpace, the talk was facilitated by Cheng & Co’s co-founder and Managing Partner himself, Prof. Dato’ Dr. Chua Hock Hoo.
Also in attendance were Dato’ George Lim, G&A’s founder & CEO and PUMM Sabah Liaison Chairman, Datuk Chua Soon Ping, Managing Director of Remajaya Sdn Bhd, WebCamp KK director, Dinoza Maarof, the PUMM members and G&A staffs.
