From The Editor
Time really flies! Still having the lingering feeling of the presentation and tabling of our respective KPIs in Pedoman 2011 and we are already half-way through. Taking stock of what we have achieved so far looks like we are on track for another milestone and brighter future. Everyone is busy with their work plans and objectives. Need to have a breather and looking back every now and then, just to be sure that we are not derail from the objectives. Also don’t forget to say hello and commended your staff every once in a while! A united front can be more efficient and decisive in riding out the unexpected. Self-belief and commitment together with honesty and sincerity will indefinitely take us to our destination, our KPIs successfully. People come and go but Metro will still be around and for us here the show must go on! So stop believing in rumours and engage in grapevine talk, as mentioned earlier manage your time well and it will be reflected in the results. Let not the negatives clouded over the positive vibes my colleagues

So many things happened since PEDOMAN and presentation KPIs for 2011. Some are good and some are reluctantly not so well received. There were a few changes in the Board Members and Management recently in line with company's new vision and aspiration Leader comes and leader goes and a new one will emerge from amongst us to take the lead. Let us not wallow into “what it should be” and “what it should not be”. For us who are still here, the business must go on. Our competitors are closing in on us and the landscape is changing. We need to adapt, learn and relearn new things and concepts. The faster for us to adapt to these changes will ensure our survival as well as our leadership in this industry. Business model need to be relooked and technology available need to be engaged in order for us to continue of being a leader Cutting down wastages and optimising the limited resources by being more prudent in our approach will give us more leverage in dealing and encountering the unexpected. Our business is all about timing and packaging. We need to do extremely well in providing what our customers are expecting from us. Surprise them in a delightful way can only be achieved if we have done our research and homework well. Another aspect that we need to address is retaining these customers with us forever. The customer service feedback is very critical for us to gather and to take immediate action. Our focus should be eliminating all the hiccups or reduce it substantially. A well-oiled machinery in all departments would be able to address this. Our communication between us must be improved. Let us remove the barrier and be as one Metro and we will be shocked to see what we can do once all these arrows were aligned to one direction! Lastly but certainly not least we have another four months to remedy, realign and then execute the plans effectively and efficiently to ensure that we can ride over this turbulence successfully
