Institute seeks effective enterprise management for good governance
The Institute of Enterprise Management and Analytics (IEMA) has charged organisations and individuals to acquire the required techniques, knowledge and skills to enhance the delivery of their business strategies to take advantage of the evolution of big data.
The Director General of IEMA, Raymond Smith, who said this during the maiden induction ceremony of members of the institute over the weekend, noted that the institute has qualified members that are trained in enterprise management and analytics in decision making for companies to achieve their set objectives.
Congratulating the inductees, the director general said with the technique, through the knowledge and framework they have acquired, it would be very easy for them to identify the gaps and proffer workable solutions in their various organisations.
Similarly, the Chairman of Council, IEMA, Prof. Ademola Ojo, who was represented by the Group Chief Finance Officer, Honeywell Group, Sikiru Rufai said the institute, been the first of its kind in Nigeria, provides a big opportunity for the participants, noting that what they have learnt was unique.
Adding that they would be better managers of affairs in the various organisations, Ojo said: “The content of what they have learnt enables them to do better than our contemporary managers, because they have skills in understanding how things work, and creating more efficiency at whatever they are looking at.”
Among the inductees is the former Commissioner for New Cities Development, Cross Rivers State, George Ekpungu.
The former commissioner, who served at the Cross Rivers State house for three years, said there is the need for such reformation because governance need to take the shape of private enterprises. He said the earlier Nigeria began to look at greater push for technology, the better for governance structure in the public sector.
“Following the move by the Federal Government to create massive automation of governance in 2019, it means, a lot of people would be redundant, we need to go back to class, update on IT to remain relevant in the public sector, enterprise management certification gives leverage on strategy, plug loopholes for key areas to be put in place for enterprises to be run seamlessly. All sectors of the economy should key into the initiative,” he said.
