I would shut down the training centre.
All training to be outsourced to private clubs and universities etc across the country. Each centre must meet certain specific manpower criteria and infrastructural requirements. Each centre must guarantee training of a certain minimum number of players of a certain grade. Payment on a sliding scale of performance. All players must agree to be available for any number of physical tests and progress evaluation on random occasions with 24 hours notice. Any player failing stringent quality levels for these tests will be thrown out. No exceptions.
The centres will be permitted to display a certificate that certifies the centre as a training centre for BAM. If there is no appreciable (quantifiable) result from any one outsourcing recipient, publish a notice and remove them from the approved list of outsourced training centres for 1 year. The certificate is to be immediately removed.
In short for everyone: a sink-or-swim approach.
BAM would then function almost mostly as an administrative centre and clearing house.
This may also be the first step tpwards a CBSL-type setup in Malaysia, if it is planned correctly, because it will provide the impetus for corporate/private enterprise to actively contribute and gain from the sport.

Please have a reality check and stop day dreaming. Not in your wildest dream will you be asked to run BAM or any national badminton federation.

private enterprise will find a way of making the sport more profitable, popular and more relevant to the times we live in, as well.
The hard part is the act of relinquishing authority and control. All those bureaucrats and politicians will not do it easily. Granted there may be a brief period of transitory chaos, but if all the diligence has been done, it will have an astoundingly good effect on the health of the game.

Well, while National Associations are investing for their "National Interest", private enterprises are doing it for their "Return of Investment".
IMHO, like other sports such as; Tennis, Soccer, Golf, etc......, private enterprises shall do better.
Why? It's because it's for the entertainment for spectators worldwide, not just for one particular nation.

yes you're right, the sponsors gonna invest in our sport in the coming future, because there's a business potential

TO CHANGE BAM... U have to change Msia Gomen 1st because BAM big guns are all connected to Msia Gomen & BAM is run exactly the same way as Msia Gomen on a smaller scale.

If you go back to #19 you will notice that the thrust of my entire argument was to take away the training aspect i.e. "operations" from the direct control of BAM. Instead BAM should "outsource" the training to established or potential "centres of excellence" for training. These can be private clubs, universities, and so on. My reference to CBSL and other leagues of other sports was to point out that this is a very viable and historically successful business model.
Let me illustrate this with an example. I stress, this is just an example, so I hope people don't get all twisted about it. The KLRC has an established infrastructure, and a reputation that can allow it to build on further and expand if necessary. If BAM were to contract the KLRC (among others) to be a "funnel" for training and supplying national players of 3 levels, and were to issue guidelines, standards, a framework of operative requirements and objectives, training procedures and so on, then the KLRC can go about the business of recruiting promising talent. Maybe KLRC would be given a certain "territory" or geographic area that they can tap into for this purpose.
What does KLRC gain? Well of course, BAM pays them for the training of "x" number of recruits for specific semesters or whatever. Sliding scales can be worked out depending on levels etc. KLRC obviously gains official recognition as a top source of talent for Malaysian badminton. The spin-offs would be to allow them to expand their training arm even further and provide the same services to foreign players or other national associations from say, Sri Lanka or Ukraine or Poland etc.
BAM still retains control over tournaments. That (event management) would be the core of their business. They can now focus on the administrative and organizational aspects of their work, and hopefully the synergy they would build with such "partnerships" would make even the event management more professional, successful and appreciated.
This is what I meant when I said...
Any sport that has transcended its comfort zone in any country or continent, has only done so with active participation of the private sector. What are the leagues all about, whether in football, basketball, baseball, cricket and so on.

but become very partisan and link all their preferences on nationality etc. and even give a high profile to
coaches who have obviously become a tool for manipulations by politicians.
But they are more open when it comes to the EPL.
