The things people say...

Dr. Mohd. "Managers are nothing" Agus Yusuff

Dr. Mohd. Agus Yusoff is an associate professor and a political analyst so he is a learned man and we should listen when he speaks la. So the NST interviewed him about the new administration and the upcoming new cabinet. He was asked if there are enough elected people now who have the calibre and who can perform their allotted duties. His answer?

"Plenty. Almost all of those who were elected in the last Umno elections are definitely people who are considered to be of calibre, in the eyes of Umno. But they not only have to be capable, they also have to be clean. They have to be firm and strong, and only politicians have got this type of quality, because they are leaders who lead. They are no managers who manage."

I just wanted to draw your attention to the highlighted part of his answer. Only politicians are firm and strong? And then he further explained that, "Managers are nothing. They are only respected because of their positional power. But a leader is a person who says something and leads. They can inspire others to work. Only a politician and a leader can do this. And this is what we need for a person to hold a ministry position."

Huh???!!!

NIAMAH!!!

Associate professor..? Political analyst.? He sounds too patronising to have any credibility. Another proud product of BN

A professor talking gibberish..no wonder we have low class graduate from local uni...

Theshi said...

Yeah corporate leaders are monkeys. They don't know anything about leading and motivating others. They are leaders because of their position. LOL

PS : However I feel the opposite might be true. Politicians aren't real leaders. they are leaders because of their position...read Najib and his family.

Pls understand children, if that teacher says otherwise not to the ears of his bosses, he is a goner.

It's a very low quality answer to a very simple question. This coming from a professor leads me to think the quality of local academics cannot be very high.

Bravo! Very well said! This kind of wise and insightful statements can only be found from a learned scholar such as Prof..err, apa nama..? Anyway, Prof..err, apa nama..must be a proud student of the brilliant management guru, Peter..err..Ducker? Doesn't matter..

What utter nonsense is this? ... "They have to be firm and strong, and only politicians have got this type of quality, because they are leaders who lead." ... Lead with what? Abusive language? Vulgar hand gestures? Racist remarks? Pure unadulterated ignorance? Corrupt practices? Abuse of power?

I wonder how many academicians such as associate professor Dr. Mohd. Agus Yusoff are appointed to "lead" students in UKM. Is it any wonder then, that UKM occupies the 250th position in the Times-run World University Rankings 2008?

With this kind of thinking, all management textbooks have to be rewritten. This Prof. surely is going to get tons of acclamations( in NIAMAH way!) and make Malaysia a truly Asia country ! Bravo

this joker really reflects the standard of our local uni, only know how to talk rubbish, make no sense at all....very sad...very sad indeed.

He is partly right mah... when you look at the MANAGERS appointed to head the GLCs, then this assoc prof got it right, those CEOs are not worth a single sen...

One of them even lost RM600 million recently for a GLC and got elected CEO of The Year, go figure....

This type of professors aplenty, who claim they are political analyst, everytime on TV, but of nosubstance. A good manager will know how to manage his staff. There is an acute short of people of calibre at this stage in BN to lead the nation. The UMNO, dominant party is sorely needing people of calibre to run this country. We will have to wait and see who will be in the cabinet so as to evaluate the future of leaders.Leaders who follow their leaders blindly are no leaders. We have many in BN of such calibre.

Has the Professor any publication to his name?

Obvious he is speaking from his personal experience. Has been appointed to his post. Has no "leadership" quality, self admission.

Shiok Guy said...

Associate Professor? What is that mean?

1. a teacher lower in rank than a full professor but higher than an assistant professor

2.a faculty member who has achieved the rank of Associate, but has not yet been promoted to Full Professor. ...

In another word, "half tank water" lah. This kind of Tank make the loudest noise. Right?

Let check his qualification, which University is he coming from? "Half Tank Water University" Also :P

Patrick, Before commenting on your article above let me point out to you how some clowns become PROFESSORRIS MADYAS shit for brains, majority of them are graduates from obscure universities and wouldn't be surprised if an actual indebt audit was done you would find a nomber with dubious degrees, as shown from the character flaws of forging work contracts like what happened with that vice chancelor of UniSEL,there are also examples of incompetant professoris who owe their titles to UMNO, and the powers that be, like the professori of pathology who conducted A. KUGAN'S First autopsy, they get their titles not because of WHAT THEY KNOW BUT ACTUALLY , WHO THEY BODEK AND KNOW IN UMNO, these professorris madyas all hold umno memberships, their actual standard brain power is actually spm at best, look at how many BEST IN THE WORLD EYE OPENING RESEARCH PAPERS THEY HAVE ACTUALLY WRITTEN, ZERO or worse still plagrized from students or from the internet. Than you also have the mara universiti Professorris Sintok as hisham rais calls them.
THE professori above looks like a perfect specimen of those policies of SYIOK SENDIRI.

Wow... what a dumb literal explanation.

Managers can't lead? Then what meaning does the term 'manager' holds in the first place?

'Analyst' my ass...

Yes, the difference between a LEADER and a COMMANDER!

THE LEADER LEADS BY EXAMPLE AND FROM THE FRONT OF HIS TROOPS! HE DOES WHAT HE SAYS AND HE DOES IT FIRST!

THE COMMANDER BEING A COWARD ONLY GIVES ORDERS AND HIDES BEHIND THE DESK AND INSIDE THE BUNKER, SCARED SHIT HIS ORDERS WILL GO WRONG AND SOLDIERS WILL DIE FOR NOTHING BECAUSE OF HIS STUPIDITY AND USELESS GOOD FOR NOTHING BRAINS! THIS COUNTRY IS FULL OF HOPELESS AND USELESS COMMANDERS........ESPECIALLY UMNO WALLAS...MANY MORE IN UNIFORMS...."DO WHAT I TOLD YOU TO DO, DON'T DO WHAT I DO! TYPES".

SO NIAMMMMAH...WE ARE RULE BY DOGS!

Agus is not a Professor. He is an ASSOCIATE Professor. The gap between an associate professor and professor is wide. This is based on a lot of factors and criteria. It is not that difficult to become an associate professor as you are only evaluated locally. But for a Professorship you will be evaluated by international evaluators.

Associate prof are professor madhya ... the most juniour professor. Some can do attain it by the early 30s. If he is still a madya and is aged more than that, that would speak volume of his non partisan approach to a supposedly academic subject. And the rubbish spewed. Remember the UM VC who spoke rubbish during ANwar Shaheby debate? UMNO don't dare to debate anymore after that..

Anonymous said...

It's just to bodek their way up to higher positions or to maintain their high position. You think this is the only praise he heap on his bosses. For all I know he is an umno member. And I'm asking why are universities and college buses seen in Bkt Gantang almost daily during this period.

'in the eyes of umno' only maa...that's why lor

DJ Khor said...

So that makes an associate prof, teachers, GMs or even doctors not to be respected or worth listening to.

Only politicians are the real thing? Only they can bring this country out of this shit-hole? They are the ones that LED this country into this shit-hole in the first place.

Where did this Agus fler bought his paper from??

Time was when Ministers would take the time and effort to become masters, or at least be competent, with the issues related to their respective portfolios. Today, there is no need, anymore. You don't need to be a civil engineer to be Minister of Public Works, or a journalist to be Minister of Information. Just a healthy curiosity about the subject and a dedication to learn enough to be responsible for it. Today, that would be asking too much of a Minister. They have to spend all their energy and effort on fighting internal/party political battles - where got time to learn about pedagogy (for Minister of Education) or criminal psychology (for Minister of Home Affairs...)

Prof Agus has probably never run a biz or company or large organization.

You think all these leaders can achieve anything without CEO's and top and middle managers not to mention the soldiers?

Who is he kidding? That's the problem with all these arm chair critics - they prbably have not even read Welch, Covey etc to understand that nothing can be achieved without a cohesive team.

And God has not granted such qualities to only UMNO Ministers and Ministers or has Agus mot noticed our GDP and world ranking in Uni, Footbal etc etc etc!

The more I am forced to meet such characters supposedly the brains of this nation, I can onlt think of the path this nation will be heading: ZIMBABWE! They have all kinds of titles at the end of their names but 'talk C..K , all the time. You have Master degree holders who can't write sentences nor think like one. Hence come 2020.Zimbabwe will be on par with us. We need not sink down, we just freeze and stand still; others in Asean will leap over us.

Cheers.

A caveat though -- there IS one job they actually are good at, with their so called 'leadership' skills -- and that is: when someone wants to go to Holland ya..these politicians can lead you there..sure effective one!

What the fcuk is he talking about? Trying to hide behind some gibberish talk. "Politicians are leaders who lead" Now who is trying to bluff? He was probably led by this kind of "leader" la. No need to waste time on him. Sheer parasite only knows how to carry balls of the BN.
