– Aimed at Training Executives with a Global Perspective –
TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President & CEO: Junichiro Ikeda) today announced that “MOL Global Management College, 2016” was launched on September 5.
MOL Global Management College started in 2014 with the aim of improving management skills in cross-cultural environments and developing next generation executives who will be in the forefront of the MOL Group’s global management. This year marks the third session of the program. In response to today’s global marketplace, the college targets not only employees in the Head Office, but also personnel from overseas subsidiaries who represent the future of the MOL Group. This year, the college will begin its four-month program with 20 participants from nine countries.
The program prepares the participants to come up with their own proposals to improve the company, taking part in energetic, hands-on sessions in small groups under the themes of personal empowerment, organizational management, and leadership in today’s global business environment, and “MOL CHART”(*), which expresses the MOL Group’s shared values. The program culminates with the participants making their own presentations to MOL’s top executives on the final day.
MOL has pushed ahead with efforts to nurture independent-spirited global leaders who are committed to acting with a sense of ownership by sharing the values of “MOL CHART” among every employee and using it as basis for decisions. The goal is “to develop the MOL Group into an excellent and resilient organization that leads the world shipping industry,” by strengthening and concentrating its comprehensive group-wide efforts.
(*) “MOL CHART” expresses group-wide shared values, introduced in April 2015, to more effectively promote sustainable growth. The word “CHART” is an acronym for “Challenge”, “Honesty”, “Accountability”, “Reliability”, and “Teamwork”.
