This is the practice in industry called PEER EVALUATION
IMHO, the trainees (users) know best. People viewing at things as outsiders know less than the trainees (users) who are actually under the coach.
Some examples (related to things outside Badminton coaching);
1. Top manufacturers say that this racket is the best racket in the world (newest material, technology, etc......), but players (users) may find it not suitable for them.
2. Top chefs awarded this dish as the most delicious dish (best ingredients, expensive ingredients, etc......), but eaters (users) may find it tasteless.
3. Top teachers say that this new teacher just recruited should be the best teacher in their school (highest qualifications, very experienced, etc......), but students (users) may find lectures boring.
4. Top film reviewers voted for this film as the best film this year (best acting, best story, etc......), but movie-goers (users) may find it dull.
5. Top fashion designers voted for this dress as the most beautiful dress (newest design, latest fashion, etc......), but wearers (users) feel they don't look good in it.

Remember the 90s case of Leeson who was not subject to any form of check and balances in making company's investments,
he bankrupted the whole (was it Barings) because he did not have to report to anyone and no one checked on him.
Would you want to run an organisation like that, no check and balance?

I totally agree with the point about checks and balances; my issue however, is of use, misuse and abuse by any system. And manipulation of the system.
But back to Misbun. Whoever cannot appreciate what he has achieved for Malaysia is "not all there" IMO.

3, is not necessarily that, it is more about maintaining standards, at least in the UK system which is subject to Quality Audit.
In Malaysia we have an MQA to monitor and audit the quality of programs not to make students happy, but mainly to
maintain the standards of graduates to a reasonable standard.Education in USA,Australia or Canada may not be so
commercialised.(corporatised if you like).

What about the other coaches like Rexy, Tan Kim Her, Sun Cen Hua, Jeremy , Wong Tat Meng, etc.etc. ,
they are all part of the team that built the Msia team, it is also a team effort.
Didn't Li Mao comment about the lack of Collaboration amongsts departments in team events?
To be great one needs to be able to accept constructive criticisms with an open mind so that there will be continuous improvement.Of course baseless criticisms are best ignored, but one should not recognise also some shortcomings
of everyone.One should also be ready always to see other peoples' points of view and collaborate with them, I think this is called Team Spirit.

Trainees/students are wiser than we think they are
It's not satisfying customers and/or maintaining standards that I am talking about. It's how the players feel what they can get from their coach.
Our Melbourne University here is regarded by top academics worldwide as one of the top universities in the world. But would I listen to them or listen to students studying there?
IHMO, trainees/students (the users) are wiser than what we think they are.
Even here at BC, our readers are wiser than us stating our different theories, ideas and/or comments. They may be remaining silent, but they (the users) know whether we are talking rubbish or not. Again, it's up to them, the users, to decide.

Other coaches have nothing taken away from them in terms of recognition. But should MS be blamed if their contribution is deemed to be "less" than his in any way by some people?
The team effort is also dependant on whether team efforts are encouraged. It did not appear to be so. Again, this was not because of Misbun. It was because of the policies that had been instituted. But I think you should know more about this than I do.

Therefore, when Misbun thinks it's not a good system, he decides to leave
That's what I meant in my previous posts. The TCC introduced a so called 'new' system. Therefore, when Misbun, the user of the system, thinks it's not a good system, he decides to leave.

But not to discredit MS even his family say that he can be a bit eccentric. In 1980 he walked out of the BAM and coach Tan Yee Khan because he disliked his training and instead trained on his own presumably with Eddy.That was when BAM was a loose ,small outfit where everybody knew each other and no one checked on each other.
If I remember rightly his career was in doldrums until 1986,where he entered the final. From then on his career shot up and his
lack of fitness was past.
Not much was achieved in Msian badminton until 1992.
I think this corporisation set-up was done @1998 prior to the Commonwealth Games.
Now this is one area where my memory is quite hazy and needs a lot of refreshing.
But I would recommend that we no longer mention Misbun as weeks ago he already appealed in the press to leave him alone and in peace.Let's leave him alone, and say neither good or bad, enough has been said already until we are repeating ourselves,
lets' discuss whether the BAM knows what it is doing and along the way give it some breathing space.

When we make judgments on whether a system is working properly,we should also look at the internal problems such as size,mindset ,culture , type of operations etc. At the same time we should do some environmental scanning as to external factors influencing the choice of systems.
It so happens today that Msia wants to upgrade itself to a first world country and wants to adopt systems on par with countries like China,Korea,Japan ,US etc. East Asian countries like China have become the world's factories and many arts and crafts have been reduced to a science. In US a simple burger outlet can become an international chain because it practices
systems engineering, there are no secrets ,every work process is analysed ,reduced to a set of written procedures and compiled in a staff manual. Every time you start work there is no training ,just read the manual and start from step1.This manual is used all over the world and if everyone follows it, you get the same burger anywhere.This bring out consistency and quality in the product, it is not a secret kept in the head of anyone. It is possible that badminton has already or is in the process of being engineered like that.If the person is not trained in this change mindset he would not be able to cope with the stress of having to write reports, write down his processes, write SWOT anlayses etc. etc.All these systems are turning Arts into sciences, even when you go to hospital you are treated a patient to be cured , rather a product to be serviced to fit the routines and availability of the system.
The 2nd challenge here in Msia is that governance and transparency.Here in Msia when you are using public funds and funds from GLC's like Maybank and Proton, all dealings have to be proper and above board and follow guidelines set out.Once an executive steps out of line anyone can report him to the MACC of graft and the officer will have to spend time in the MACC
Both are what is called Benchmarking ,set standards comparable with the rest of the world and other industries.
I think it was first pioneered by the US and Europe and goes by some fancy name "Business Process Re-engineering or BPR for short.
Like I said this is in response to external environmental influences and vary from country to country and region to region.
