    I disagree with this article. It is not a question of getting the current setup of coaches/players to welcome and accept TAM's plans in a more compromising give-and-take manner. Malaysia has to recognize and accept the fact that the whole system has to be completely overhauled. Working around an acceptable way, of all things, with the current batch of coaches/players, is not a sea-change but more of a smooth handover of management.
    Well, if the latter is what BAM is now forced to accept, thanks to non-neutral and non-objective inputs from Rashid, coaches, players, NSC head and other powerful figures who don't feel comfortable with any drastic change, then so be it.
    The future of Malaysian badminton will be at stake. When that time comes, those responsible for blocking this once in a life time tsunami change will be gone forever. By then where would all these people be?

    That article's got a point. Mr. TAM is (or rather, was) dealing with humans, not computers. Unlike computers or programs, humans won't always obey you, and worse: they can strike you back. Just like rogue SkyNet in Terminator films ;)

    The article has a point that will not solve Malaysia's decline, only make everyone happy like the good old days.
    In fact, TAM's proposal was fundamentally excellent as it would have the effect of coaches and players who are unhappy leaving. That is good, shedding those blocking drastic changes away in one sweep. Of course there will be coaches and players-these are the good ones who produce results-who will then take over the new reign. This is a sea-change, not a sugar-coated one with the old guards still in control.
    Malaysia badminton cannot be saved with slow transitions, only a drastic change-over. Since humans are responsible for such stewardship, the old school must be "slaughtered", with no remains for replanting only to come back.

    The patient refused the surgeon's treatment. Therefore, the progressive decline in condition is likely. It takes brave people to accept the diagnosis and accept the drastic treatment.

    [h=1]BAM's austerity drive[/h]
    By K.M. BOOPATHY | boopathy@nst.com.my




    [h=2]THE BA of Malaysia's (BAM) spending on overseas competitions will be reduced considerably and the coaches have been asked to come up with a prudent tournament plan for next year.[/h]BAM president Tengku Mahaleel Tengku Ariff revealed that the national senior and junior shuttlers competed in a total of 61 tournaments last year, of which 44 were international events.

    "We have been spending heavily on tournaments and national players competed in a total 61 tournaments last year. If they are competing in so many tournaments, when are they going to train?" asked Tengku Mahaleel.
    "The coaches should evaluate their players and set targets for them. The objective of competing abroad must be clear.
    "Our players have played in events like the Welsh, Scottish and Irish Internationals. They can compete at the same level of tournaments in our region to get exposure.
    "Exposure must also be spelt out specifically. If a player gets knocked out in the first or second round, it is better for him to focus on training before he is given the chance. By doing so, he will deliver quality results and his world ranking can improve faster."

    Tengku Mahaleel has roped in Penang BA president Dr. Koay Ban Hing to help the national coaches draw up the tournament plan for 2014.
    BAM's new stringent process started with last week's Japan Open where only eventual champion Lee Chong Wei and mixed doubles Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying competed.
    For the Denmark and French Opens next month, Chong Wei and Liew Daren will play in the singles while Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and Tan Wee Kiong-Hoon Thien How are the only doubles entered.

    MTA / TAM had noble intentions to clean up BAM's house. They are already in their grey years set to retire and have earned enough in their corporate careers to not have to worry about money. They do not seem to have vested interests (political or financial) so they should be applauded for taking on this dirty job. TAM plan/proposal was sound. You can say MTA put together an Expendables team (comprising old timers like TAM, Dr Koay) but unlike Stallone's Expendables this team was sound on paper but they screwed up on the execution/implementation and the PR part. One big mistake was the handling of Village Champ (VC) resignation case. At the press conference MTA let his temper get to him and was almost screaming that VC was indispensable and that they may take action against VC for signing contract with IBL etc. That demonstrated poor PR and also poor intel facts from his admin people about the VC IBL contact (i.e. the contract was 2 weeks and not 1 year and it was advisory and not coaching role). Obviously KG and NCC should be caned for giving incorrect facts to MTA. It is akin to wrong intel give to Dubya Bush by his team which resulted in him starting the Iraq War. So BAM demonise VC for signing IBL contract and all these went up to the KJ and the higher ups. In the public eye, VC was crybaby and looked like the victim while BAM came across as a bully. Despite VC poor coaching record he was still something of a national hero in the old days winning Olympic medal etc.
    Later when TSB and VC provided the details to MTA about IBL contract, MTA had to back down and when higher up talked with MTA his wings were clipped to allow return of VC. All that was a PR disaster for BAM and they were down one goal even before TAM's plan could start.
    They also did not get well known coaches (like Razif) as spokesmen to show support for TAM's plan in public. All we saw at press conference was a bunch of old Expendables MTA/ TAM announcing changes and no coaches were seen to be supporting them. The image was stern, almost autocratic with no compromises. :D

    This article offers concrete facts on what happened, and makes it very understandable to me why the reform was aborted. This type of management is not 'surgery', it is chain-saw massacre,blatant display of amateurism, and total lack of consideration for the coherence any organization needs.
    The best of projects, ideas and intentions are useless without correct scheduling. The best of plans is worth pennies if one does not involve the people needed inside the plan.

    Well except you forget that there is bunch of cancerous freeloaders non performing coaches like Village Champ, TKH which require surgery to remove. So in this instance involving freeloaders inside the plan will only make it worse. That is what few of us mean by surgery. Removing the rubbish overpaid freeloaders who resist change and want to remain chief coaches. In a corporation, Village Champ and TKH would have been fired long time ago. :)

    I understand that, but besides removing negative elements, the persons in charge must take care to give a positive perspective for the others, otherwise everyone freak out and believe they are the next one to be ejected! That said, I know nothing about BAM, it is just outside opinion based on the comments here

    Tools may not be the most advanced, but the surgeon has a horrible bedside manner.

    Doesn't matter how skillful his hands and techniques are, this patient flatly outright refuses to let this surgeon remove the cancerous growth.
