    [h=1]Faced with crisis, Malaysia revamps badminton organisational structure[/h]
    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2013/09/11/malaysia-revamp-organisational-structure-badminton/

    EXCERPTS:

    Another Asian badminton power – faced with a bleak future – has revamped its structure.

    Malaysia has been confronted by dwindling fortunes in all five categories. With world No.1 Lee Chong Wei the only world-beater at their disposal, Malaysia has initiated a reform of its organisation, with its new president using his corporate experience to address the situation.


    The other Asian giant to embark on a revamp was Indonesia, which overhauled its coaching set-up a year ago and was rewarded in the form of two gold medals at the World Championships in August this year.


    Malaysia faces as dire a situation as Indonesia did. There are no prominent Malaysians in women’s singles and women’s doubles, and only a couple of good pairs in men’s doubles and mixed doubles. The presence of Lee Chong Wei gives them an appearance of good health in men’s singles, but there is no back-up player good enough to replace him. This was conceded by coach Rashid Sidek, who told Malaysian media on his return from the Indian Badminton League that India, in fact, had greater depth than Malaysia.


    Malaysian badminton’s revamp started with the assuming of office of new BAM president Tengku Tan Sri Mahaleel Tengku Ariff on July 27. The president first met various stakeholders, including the media, players, sponsors and coaches, before announcing his plans.Tengku Mahaleel, who was formerly CEO of automobile major Proton Holdings, has brought in his corporate experience to badminton.


    Among his significant decisions was to announce a five-year strategic plan and the restructuring of Badminton Association of Malaysia into two main divisions – Talent Management Group (TMG) and Service Support Group (SSG). The BAM earlier had a more elaborate set-up consisting of an executive committee and seven sub-committees.


    Tengku Mahaleel also brought in a popular name of yesteryear badminton – Tan Aik Mong, who, apart from his experience as a top international during the 1960s and 1970s, has had a career in IT.

    Tan Aik Mong will be director of the Talent Management Group, while the Service Support Group will be headed by general manager Kenny Goh. Both the heads of the two groups will be monitored by a ‘steering committee’ under Tengku Mahaleel.


    Tan Aik Mong, with his IT experience, is expected to usher in technological reform, such as the introduction of an audio-visual analytical system. The Star newspaper quoted Tengku Mahaleel as saying that the heads of the two groups would be held responsible for performance of national shuttlers.


    “The steering committee will hold both Aik Mong and Kenny totally responsible,” the president was quoted as saying. “If their group fails, they will be chopped. It is how the corporate world does it. If they do well, their teams will be rewarded… In the past, we used to have too many leaders calling the shots but now, we have reduced it to only two.


    “In the past, the development committee did not know what the competition committee wanted and vice versa. Now, they do not exist. We have de-layered all the units in BAM and we will not have people confused of their roles.”


    Malaysia’s revamp is reminiscent of Indonesia’s a year ago under PBSI’s new chairman Gita Wirjawan. A crucial part of his approach was to get former greats on board, with doubles legend Rexy Mainaky heading the coaching committee.


    Once i read this, i just wanted to share this article.. BAM is moving in the right direction?? Limsy can explain this better...;)

    [h=2]NEW SET-UP: Aik Mong reshuffles the coaching structure with many taken by surprise[/h] TALENT Management Group (TMG) director Tan Aik Mong has reshuffled the BA of Malaysia's coaching structure where most of the senior coaches have been moved to the back-up and junior squads.
    Although Aik Mong has promised not to drop any coaches, he has made some tough decisions, including abolishing the chief coach roles for singles and doubles coaches.
    Only Tan Kim Her, initially considered to be a coach at Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS), has been spared.
    He is set to be Aik Mong's personal assistant.
    Former national chief coach Razif Sidek will return to BAM on a voluntary basis and in charge of the national team.
    Although Rashid Sidek and Tey Seu Bock have been retained as the national men's singles coaches, they will be joined by BJSS head coach Zhao Kejian, who currently trains junior shuttlers like Soo Teck Zhi, Soong Joo Ven and Lim Chi Wing. The trio are expected to join the seniors, led by Lee Chong Wei, in training.
    The men's doubles will be helmed by Paulus Firman. The Indonesian will be assisted by Chang Kim Wah whose place in BJSS has been taken over by Chong Kein Ling.
    Women's doubles coach Rosman Razak will swap places with Wong Pei Tty, who is currently the BJSS girls' doubles coach. Wong Tat Meng is another surprise choice, returning to the junior squad as the women's singles coach. His assistant is Woon Sze Mei.
    Ronny Augustinus will take over from Tat Meng and assisted by Ng Mee Fen.
    The "biggest casualty" is Hendrawan who could find himself coaching the juniors but there are talks that the Indonesian could be in charge of the back-up team, who will be the feeder to the national team.
    Aik Mong had a series of meetings with Razif and the coaches since Monday before finalising the changes.
    Razif also had a meeting with the coaches with many of them looking disappointed but none objected to Aik Mong's decisions.
    Aik Mong refused to comment on the changes and only stated he would announce the whole structure of the national team today.
    However, Aik Mong's revamp is set to be approved by BAM president Tengku Mahaleel Tengku Ariff.
    The composition of the players in the national and junior teams will also be announced within the week.

    Kick Rashid Sidek out fully. He is so passive and useless. Half the time when the camera pans to him, he is looking somewhere else other than the match at hand!

    Foo Kok Keong has had his difficulties. Can fighting spirit be taught? I think it is shown by example as character plays an important part. But you have leaders who can inspire but you need the vision with an understanding how the process works.

    Refer to Donabedian's Structure, process and outcome.

    KUALA LUMPUR: It’s the same old badminton coaches but with different roles and responsibilities.

    On Thursday, Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) separated their national squad into two teams and named former Olympic Games men’s doubles bronze medallist Razif Sidek and former world champion Hendrawan as the heads.
    Razif is the head of Team A, which comprises the country’s top shuttlers while Hendrawan manages the back-up players under Team B.
    Both Razif and Hendrawan have chosen their own coaches, including those from the Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS).

    The only one missing from the coaching structure is former doubles chief coach Tan Kim Her, who will now be assisting BAM Talent Management Group director Tan Aik Mong.

    Razif’s coaching team consist of his younger brother Rashid, Tey Seu Bock, Zhou Kejian (BJSS chief coach), Paulus Firman, Chang Kim Wai, Rony Agustinus, Ng Mei Fen, Wong Pei Tyy and Jeremy Gan.
    It is a huge promotion for the five BJSS coaches - Kejian, Rony, Mei Fen, Pei Tty and Kim Wai.
    Former singles chief coach Rashid will no longer call the shots as he will have to work with Seu Bock and Kejian to produce more singles winners. Currently, the only successful one is world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei.

    In the doubles, without chief coach Kim Her, doubles coaches Paulus and Kim Wai are expected to play a more prominent role and with Razif as the head, one can expect players to toe the line.
    The more experienced Hendrawan will work with Wong Tat Meng, Rosman Razak, Hazwan Jamaluddin, Chin Eei Hui and Chong Kien Ling. Tat Meng and Rosman were previously heading the women’s singles and doubles elite teams.

    For Eei Hui, it is a bigger responsibility to manage the back-up women’s team. Previously, she was assisting Rosman in the national team.
    Aik Mong said that Razif and Hendrawan’s first big task is to conduct the ranking tournament. For a start, only 60 out of the 121 players in the set-up will be involved in a move to determine the ranking order.
    The ranking tournament for the remaining 61 players - all from BJSS will be held at a later date, after Aik Mong has chosen someone to head the team.
    “Currently, we have not determined which players go to Team A and Team B. The coaches will conduct the ranking tournament and based on the results, the players will be divided into the two teams,” said Aik Mong.
    “Once we have established the ranking order of Teams A and B, anyone from outside can challenge them. Ideally, Team A will have to get all the titles and gold medals while Team B will have to produce champions to join the first team. Razif and Hendrawan will get their team of coaches to work towards this,” he said.
    Now that he has passed on the coaching responsibilities to Razif and Hendrawan, Aik Mong will shift his focus to other matters on his agenda, including the certification of coaches, grassroots programmes, and computerising the programme.

    What TAM has done is shift the existing coaches around. They didnt hire new coaches.
    Remember also the fiasco with the Korean MD coach and Rexy, Now the political ones have pushed out Misbun & Rexy, Rexy go back INA make it successful. BAM fault but I'm sure PBSI are thanking them for it

    What that article is saying is that players can play to be promoted or demoted.

    That will give a target to players movin up, be objective and look fairer. Let's see how it will work.

    BAM/TAM did not or cannot fire the deadwood coaches.
    They mixed them with the promoted ones.
    Whatever ideas the promoted ones have may not be welcomed by the existing ones, don't try to be too smart.

    At least the hands on the steering wheel of former proton saga is being driven the correct direction, now I wouldn't say completely the right direction to the right degree of the compass, but at least, it's better than the 'sampah' before this. Wonder how is Misbun feeling now?:cool:

    Never say never, my friend. Though from different mothers, but at the end of the day, family comes first. Besides, it's no longer RS, but another RS.:D Who knows, come Hari Raya next year, during balik kampung dinner, suddenly Misbun is back. Maybe TAM will be welcoming too. After all, although the camp is not completely environmentally friendly to Misbun, but at least it's a start. Moreover, many people still see him as the coach who brought up LCW's career, as highlighted in Lee's book, Dare to be Champion. I believe for a start, it's on the right track to grooming future champions. Just hope that the mast of the sail does not change direction to the tune of the politician's monsoon winds and wimps.

    I did hear before either Razif or Jailani not in good terms with Rashid due to some past conflict. Razif & Rashid, hmmm, worse than Misbun & Rashid looking at Razif's more fiery character
