AIESEC-LC-HKUST 3 year MISSION We cultivate global-minded leaders with entrepreneurial spirit.
2013-2014 MISSION To provide quality exchange experience
THE WAY WE DO IT For session 2012-2013, it would be considered as a year of innovation and change. New initiatives were proposed and organized, for example, program-based recruitment for GCDP and the new structure of Executive Board. But after various changes, a time for consolidation is required in order to maintain the quality program experiences to AIESECers as well as push the organization forward and improve in the future. Therefore, foundation consolidation will be the main focus for session 2013-2014 and shift the focus of this organization back to exchange-focused since it is the most impactful way to develop global-minded leaders. 2012-2013 Innovation - Program-based Exchange - Change of Structure
Foundation Consolidation - Talent Pipeline - Exchange Focused LC
2014-2015 Continuity - Exchange Product Expansion
FOCUS AREA i)
Foundation Consolidation – Maintain as Quality Entity In order to maintain as a quality entity among the national and international plenary, it is necessary for us to consolidate changes and learning that we have gained in the year of innovation. Thus, a better reserve of the resources that could lead us to better development for the future sessions can be maintained.
Talent Planning Since members are always the largest asset of our organization, we need to plan thoroughly how we should target these targeted groups, i) Salesperson (supported by MC direction); ii) Exchange; iii) Leader, and how they will affect the future development of our LC – exchange and leadership driven.
Develop review and feedback system in LC
i. Continuation of Winter Training Camp to develop leadership pipeline
i. Continuous review of operation will be held, especially for quarterly review for whole LC
ii. Develop Targeted Trainings for members by LST (TD)
ii. Develop a platform and culture for feedback to seek for continuous improvement
Exchange Focus – Develop Global-Minded Leaders Since exchange is the core-business of AIESEC and the most powerful tool for us to show the society what our impact is. Thus, we should put exchange as our focus back, in which each functional area should work towards supporting the exchange areas and more resources will be invested to develop a stronger exchange pipeline. a) i. ii. iii. iv. v. b) i.
