Time dotcom: Declared Dysfunctional

Time Dotcom Bhd (TdC) CEO Afzal Abdul Rahim's Official Declaration:

TdC is DYSFUNCTIONAL; TdC is disconnected from the market.

TdC needs: a Total Overhaul, a Paradigm Shift, a new Business Plan, a set of Turnaround Initiatives and Divisional Initiative,s and some Quick Wins!

Afzal admitted that these are vital because TdC has too many leakages in operating expenses. Its spending for network is high, it is too dependent on vendors’ solution, it lacks direction, has no clarity and, most importantly, its product offerings are too complex.

“This company has structural issues and people work in silos. We have to be conscious that we are dysfunctional as an organisation and we have to do basic cleaning up as we can get simple things wrong.

“If we do not change everything in the peripheral, we cannot achieve the target and that is why a complete overhaul is needed,’’ chief executive officer Afzal Abdul Rahim told StarBiz in an interview.

He said the structural problems came about because “people were too busy organising functions around personalities and this resulted in them building silos and empires which led to no synchronisation.”

“There is clearly a lack of direction and clarity and everyone only thought of his own work. (TdC has been looking inwards) and that is why TdC is disconnected from the market. We did not know what the market wanted,’’ Afzal said.

Afzal came on board in October last year and that is what he discovered after more than three months at the helm.

He has a three-year mandate from Khazanah Nasional Bhd to turn TdC around.

TdC has been suffering from internal hemorrhage; it has been losing money for more than a decade.

Turnaround? How are they doing it?

From observations, they are:

(1) Removing existing executives using VSS and parking new executives into the old job role (85% of the executives were replaced - 23 out of 27);

(2) Cost Reduction Initiatives: (i)Cutting operating expenditures from RM100 mil to RM40 mil. & moving office from it's Jalan Tun Razak leased-premises to its own premise at Glenmarie in Shah Alam.;

(3) Flattening the organizational hierarchy to enhance visibility;

(4) De-coupling from the United Engineers (M) Bhd (UEM) group and Time Engineering Bhd.

Will it work? Theoretically yes; empirically ... behemoth task and onerous. Turnaround is not just simply: putting on the right man on the bus and taking out the wrong people off; it is not just about having a good business plan and flattening the steep hierarchy. It is about a strong leadership, a strategic business action plan which are goal-centric with fixed time frame, a high performance team supporting and driving change, and a dynamic cashflow system which are driving the revenue growth & collections with a team of researchers empowered to innovatively drive cost-reduction without sacrificing or trade-off with elements that are contributing positively to the organizational processes. Most of all, the change and impact which provides positive contributions towards organizational goals and objectives are sustainable and becomes the new culture within the organizational system.

What about Rewards? But you can't have or sustain a high performance team without a strategic reward system: the rewards must be result-based, rewarding the "Lembu"and not just the "Sapi", and it motivates - the people on the job and continually drives their performances from good to great.

Strong leadership is not just about a good-talking leader or a friendly person; he leads by example and he has the vision and foresight of the businesses and he has the ability to identify good performers; most of all, he and his executives have the right attitude and are of strong character. However, he can do no better if his team are incompetent or inexperience : qualifications aren't just enough; these executives must possess on-the-job experiences, experiences in complexity and chaos management, experiences of similar failures from without and within, and excellent skills in Project Management, Financial Management, strategic Business Management and Risk Managemen; and most of all, they have the "Right Attitude" and with business-centric mentality.

Critical Failure Factors: mediocrity and ketuanan mentality, class & color differentiations, lack of focus or unsustainable focus, a new crony system replacing the old, talks well and talks often about performance instead of driving & ensuring performance are acted upon and measured on, good at meetings as well as spending too much time in meetings talking about performance and not spending time with the people on the job to manage the products and services to the customers/clients on time, with the right quality and at a competitive price, as well as managing the effective cost of the products and services.

I can only wish Afzal: "Best of Luck" and "May God Bless You and Your Team".

replacing the executives... ha! ha! ha!

this time from which camp huh?

change all of them still the same la, gigo - garbage in, garbage out!

- ah ngau

Maverick SM said...

Ah Ngau,

This is a corporate decision by a new CEO and is not related to political influence by those in power.

All new CEOs will want to put their core people in-charge of specific portfolios.

moo_t said...

Being visit their Tun Razak office before, pretty curious why they leased the place for all their executive than a small node office for sales people.

Honestly,if I am not being their their SS13 chilling data center (way colder than TM Myloca data center) , I really have no idea what business TdC is in to.

Maverick SM said...

Moo_t,

The options available earlier could have its reasons then.

The main issue is dealt with in Afzal's declarative statement.

RaZ said...

Mav,

Your fren ar? You sure speak like him.

Afzal is capable of turning around TdC, and he has already decoupled from UEM and Time Engineering through his joint shareholding with Khazanah.

The problem with TdC (under Khazanah) was that it had no mission. It had one under Renong (UMNO) where it was supposed to provide TM with some friendly competition. When the shit hit the fan in '97 and Khazanah took over, it cannot decide TdC's role because of its interest in TM.

TdC is an offshoot of Time Engineering's fiber trunks under the North-South Highway. It started as a telco wholesale, then dabbled in retail via Adam 017 and lastly into the internet access (hence called TdC.)

Going back to their roots as a wholesaler should rekindle their past glory. But the only reason they can do that now is because of their corporate decoupling.

TdC still has a very big hole in their balance sheet. Turning around is not the issue. Shuffling accounts and accepting large write-offs is another story.

TdC has about RM 2 billion in equity after deducting its RM 2.1 billion in accumulated losses. In addition, it has RM 1 billion in borrowings. To make it reasonably profitable, it needs a make at least RM 100 million a year after interest of about RM 50 - 70 million. That is a tall order.

I doubt the wholesale business can solely contribute to the profit objective. To do those numbers it needs to (1) get back into the retail business. And that means competing with TM's broadband. And (2) invest to replace their obsolete (and some non-existing) network equipment. And did I mention that TdC only have about RM 200 million in cash. Oh, TdC have a sizable stake in Digi Telecom too (in 2007 about RM 1 billion less now I think) but Afzal is not allowed to touch that.

Turning around TdC is practically impossible without restructuring the the company's financial.

Afzal may just be a patsy for Khazanah.

Khazanah conned the government into giving TdC a 3G license. Then it turnaround and sold it off to Digi Telecom. (Quick win - Ali Baba style)

Now that Khazanah has put TdC under an SPV (Pulau Kapas Venture Sdn. Bhd.) I would not be suprised if it pulls another fast one again and drop the whole shit on Afzal's lap.

Watch your back Afzal and Good Luck!

Sorry Mav. What you said is all well and good and are ingredients to turning around companies. But TdC is just another Khazanah company, and all Khazanah is interested in is $$$.

simone zain said...

My ex=company was their client. Used to pay bills of more than RM4,000 every month. Then one day Time stopped billing the company. I called to check.

Sorry sir. We are upgrading for clients' benefit. Fine but will you please bill us? Ok, will look into it.

Next month also no bill. Called again, Same reply.

The following month, again no bill.

How to turn around? Pay gaji of all the executives but no need to collect billings!

Good luck.

Maverick SM said...

RaZ,

You have some good pointers.

I think TdC's debt has been parred down to about RM500mil and will be expected to dispose off the DiGi's shares to enhance its cash flow position.

Afzal said TdC will not be going into the retail business until such time when its structure and people are ready.

There's a lot Afzal had to do to get back TdC to position.

RaZ, Afzal is a good man; we can only wish him good luck.


Simone Zain,

When a company has weak management, that was the outcome. Let's hope they will do better now.

no surprise, a lot of things in malaysia requires re-structuring.

kittykat46 said...

Time Dot Com is a very poorly managed business with terrible managers. Most of the senior management needs to be removed and replaced with competent people hired based on merit - that's my honest opinion.
And they would do well to look beyond just one race for management talent.

Good luck to Afzal, but I don't think he will succeed. He doesn't have the mandate to do the above. Most likely they will end up with half-hearted efforts and cosmetic changes which do not have real impact on their operating efficiency.

Maverick SM said...

Kittykat46,

let's give Afzal a chance; he may make TdC better with his focus and dedication. Its a tough job!!!

Anonymous said...

Afzal and his gang should take TDC out from GLC. Thats the only way TDC can survive coz Khazanah don't want TDC, they just want DiGi shares. Thats why they don't let Afzal touch DiGi sharesapart from paying debt. I think Afzal need to increase his stake in TDC, but with no of share of 2.5 bil, its to much to swallow. Capital Reduction? I don't think Khazanah will let this to happen. Hopefully once Afzal can turnaround TDC, Khazanah won't sell TDC to foreigner..If not..then..poor Afzal.

Anonymous said...

ermmm.. like shit hit the fan are what now happening in TDC.

Afzal Head of Service Management, Lee Guan Hong, is causing engineers leaving the company at rate nobody seen before. Those are key player engineer and left the company after being challenged by Lee Guan Hong that no company will hire them. Thanks to Lee Guan Hong, they are paid double or triple at their new employer.

These are peoples, like Lee Guan Hong, that surrounds Afzal management team and their arrogant will soon bring them down.

Poor Afzal. If only he knows whom he should trust and whom he should not.

Anonymous said...

Lee Guan Hong is like rotweiller.He was brought in, to bark and chase all the Service Management People which he think incompetent.He have done the same at Digi.His KPI is to reduce manpower in Time without losing money.
Don't forget, one of time dot com staff is having good relationship with Najib.Any time KJ people can be terminated. Afzal study in UK same time as KJ, don't we see the similarities.

MAMA said...

The dictionary defines INCOMPETENT as: - not competent; 1)lacking qualification or 2)inability; 3)incapable.

Lets do a quick evaluation here:-

1)Lacking qualification -- if LEE GUAN HON lack qualifications then why did TDC CEO hire him to be the HEAD OF SERVICE MANAGEMENT to take care of a department? And if qualification is not important for this position then why not hire you people instead?

2)Inability -- the ability to
".... Lee Guan Hong, is causing engineers leaving the company at rate nobody seen before...."
WOW.... you don't call this ablity? If you ever have a chance TRY to outscore the quote of '...leaving the company at rate nobody see before' If any of you are at management level, you will understand that having a outflow of non performing workers at such a rate is not easy. It requires SKILLs... I know most of you find it hard to understand simply because you are not at that level and of course you have to understand that to be at level you will need SKILLS.

3)Incapable --tell your mama.. What do you call someone who:-

i)Is holding a head of department position;

ii)Has the ability to cause outflows of 'KEY PERSONNELS' without any lost to the company,

iii)Have everyone in and out of the company talk about him.

iv)Despite everything that happen, TDC CEO has not step in to put a stop to things or to kick his ass out of the company! So... tell your mama now! Is he capable or incapable?

God's teaching is to always look at yourself before commenting on others. "Those who call others incompetent are imcompetent themselves". This is most likely the reason why you are still where you are now. You should stop for a second and think why others are doing well, making big money and driving imported luxury cars but you are not even close? Stop wasting time using your mouth or in this case your fingers to complain... instead, start using your brain for a change and work out what you must do to be as good as him!

Think my friend, think.

May God Bless you and help you see the light really soon.....

I think Time dot com service now sucks. Their engineer at their service center don't sounds like engineer. I believe this is something to do with what you all here are discussing. Poor services by new poor service management? How can a manager claim he is new and knows nothing. Stupid.

Anonymous said...

LGH, make company run with less engineers so TDC can outsource operations and everything else.
Looks like his GOAL is simple:
Making sure time dot com only hire 2 people, CEO and LGH.

Carax2:
1) pecat all "redundant people" 23 out of 27 workers
2) pay the staying ones a little more and force them to work work work.
3) hire new blood under contract only 1 worker.
4) remaining 4 wish they have taken/got vss
5) 4 would quit after finding out contract staff paid x3 gaji.
6) all outsource staff.

At the end,
1) No staff for TDC except LGH and the CEO,
2) All staff contract.
ALL LGH goals meet, he get big bonus.

staff..., get nothing... :(

In which part of my comments did i mention or even give the impression that assumptions were made on people who left were due to lack of skills? In my message, I mention '...non performing workers..' but I dun rememeber saying anything about those who left are due to lack of skills? Those i mention who does not have the skills are people like you who are not at management level.. Are you just Stupid or are you damn Stupid? Cock-A-Naden leh! Should i break it down to even more simple english for your easy understanding? *faint...vomit blood*

hMMM let me make a wild guess.. the reason you got so worked up is coz you must be one of those NON PERFORMING WORKERS WHO LEFT right? haha Come on dude.. cool it... peace man!! No worries, let me give you a piece of advice and please bring it with you throughout your life, it will help you move up from where you are (well, at least a little).

I remember when i was younger, my primary school English teacher would remind us to reread a message again and again to understand what the author is trying to tell us. Here, my advise to you is for you to do just that... reread and reread the message again and again (notice how much i reiterate) until u understand the true meaning of the message before making any invalid assumptions on your own.

Alright? ;)
Hope you will improve yah!

Oh oh oh.. BTW, you mention 'FUCK YOU MAMA??' ...hahaha.. MAMA's question to you now is, do you have wat it takes?? *hiak hiak hiak.....*

Why must TDC pays Lee Guan Hong RM20,000.00 per month when TDC can easily save by hiring fresh grads and get the same results. After all, that’s what you, Afzal, been screaming all this while, cut cost, cut cost.

Anonymous said...

Afzal, you need good people to help you to turn around the company, not over turn the company. Kicking out bad hats (like me:) will help but you need to ensure that good people are coming in before the bad ones are out!!!
I heard there was a guy by the name Mark Lim hired by TIME a few months back but he left after a month! I heard a lot of good things about this guy, from both internal and external sources and I personally know him many years back. He is really good in his job and his previous company had developed him into a good leader. He was climbing up the corporate ladder and gaining his recognition in the ICT world. I am not sure what magic did you do to convince him to give up his comfortable job and join TIME.
I am also not sure what is the reason that he left TIME but TIME should have retained this kind of people by all means. It's better to have 1 of these good people rather than hiring and feeding 10 useless staff.
Apart from that, cutting cost is not just about kicking out people and offering VSS. You need to look into the structure and staff morale too. You can have great products but without proper structure and people to sell them, it's as good as having none...

Good luck Afzal and Guan Hong.

Afz@l said...

I believe Time has always been a come and go at will for some. It's a culture that is being re-addressed now and moving forward with the clearance of da deadwoods and the new management team. FYI, the CMO is not LGH u DINGBAT, it's a person whom i personally believe can make things happen unlike the previous clowns.

I wonder why is there so much animosity towards LGH. And what's the problem being arrogant and decisive to get the work done. After all this while, we had a bunch of pansies running the show who couldn't control albeit gain their staff's respect.

Oh well, the show must go ON. And guess what we're on the move to retain some of the fantastic talents left TDC previously and this is pretty much thanks to the bumbling dingbats left during the vss.

A.Rul said...

You mean the Mark Lim from VADS? You must be kidding. This can't be true. I was in VADS for a while and this nice gentleman is one of the best asset to VADS. He is technically sound and has his way of managing his team and business unit. When I was working in VADS, I heard many headhunters and MNCs approached him but none suceeded in getting him. He is a smart guy, don't think he will be so stupid to leave VADS and join a F&*((&up company.
BTW Afzal, LGH can only be good if he could improve on his people management skills, service management in Tdc will improve as well. I can say LGH is very sharp and make correct decision at the critical moment, but how far can he alone go? TEAMWORK is the keyword my friend. Even if you employ a superman, he still needs a team of people to assist him for things to work in Tdc.
I totally agreed with the previous comment that in order for you to turn around Tdc, you need to look into the current structure and people issues. If you have all these things in place and operation is running smoothly, it's time for you to shout...TM here we come!...but now, you can only look at how TM pull your customers away due to the poor services provided

Afz@l said...

If i may add, previously TDC had some great pool of talents among the executives.However their immediate bosses was never inspiring enough to motivate them to work harder and the downline impact from sales and revenue has further demoralized further.

Now that we have this lil "rascals" left on their own accord and with a bit more of steel in the management, we can only move for the better. As of today, we have improved on reducing the loss compared to last year and given a good 3-4 years i'm pretty sure we can turn things around. By then we'll diversify to see how we can work together with Tier 1 telcos to release competitive products & services.

I must say there's a renewed spirit within a team and seeing so many old faces making a return tops the morale too.

So friends, why don't we end this squabble for now. Give us a chance to serve you better!!

Af*@!,

You don't have good 3-4 years. You have to make it happen before the next GLC restructuring...else your good name will be tarnished, my dear friend.

tohff7 said...

i thought GTI agreement with Khazanah is to let Afzal run Time dotCom for at least 3 years? if no, it will be not-so-good.

haji said...

VW Golf GTI or Proton Satria GTI? Hehe. 3 to 4 years is just too long. If he is really good, within 2 years should see Tdc turn around. I also don't hope to see the 16th CEO soon. It sounds ugly when the whole market knows that we have changed 14 CEOs for the past 15 years. It can't be all the past 13 CEOs also failed to turn around Tdc? Maybe it's like what Afzal said, 'we have this lil rascals left'???

tohff7 said...

=.='' Global Transit lar..lol

'lil rascals'..oh well, if you really look at the senior management team, some have been there for quite a long time, even though CEOs keep changing.

Anyway, i was curious why Dato Baharum Salleh left just after a year. 1 year mana cukup to turnaround....kerusi belum panas pun..

haji said...

braler, of course i know who is GTI lar. It's just another company started by Afzal, claiming itself to be the leading IP Transit provider in Malaysia

Dato Baharum was the right hand man to TM Group CEO prior to joining Tdc. His contributions to TM's successes needless to elaborate here. A man with many years of experience in telco industry and proven track record can leave Tdc in 1 year....what do you think lar braler?

tohff7 said...

Dengar dengar dulu tak ngam ngan Wahid bila he take over as CEO of TM. ntahlar..lol

Of course it look bad. Some more, no reason given. But, oh well....

Afz@l said...

I still see plenty of hate messages. Now why is that folks. Can't we just all live in peace. It's already difficult for some to see TDC succeed in their ventures and for some, they'd rather be kept in darkness, getting the same comfortable pay and whine non-stop at changes meant to give good news for the company as a whole.

Fellas, i would welcome anyone of you to personally email me your voracious complaints/criticism and what not. Why air your grouses here when there's so much can be done to rectify in between. I understand, for many this is not a time for a bed of roses either. Having said that, we will turn this time around. A great wise man once said "We have sunken so low and there's no other way besides going up and that's way we're heading next".

A pitch from a proverb to end this hearsay. "However long the night, the dawn will break"

Syahrani Sharudin said...

Agreed, just too many who has let TDC down, me included. I can only wish great success now. Tdc will always be my 1st love.

Anonymous said...

I believe a lot people are not happy as the current mgmt has done nothing to increase increase revenue. What they have done is manage to reduce opex trough VSS, which I believe is a no brainer!

The real crunch is to increase revenue which the 14th. ceo mentioned that it will happen in the 3/4 years time. If that is the strategy, then the 15th. CEO has his work cut out!

Lee Guan Hong.. correct correct.. he is soooo stuuuu..pid moron..

Afz@l said...

Why must you pity me. He got it going how i wanted tdc to be reformed. It ain't pretty but to get things moving painlessly was never an option.

He has served well in the "resource downsizing" exercise and have talents better utlized in other divisions.

I'd say the focus now shifts to how to maximise the Tech, Products, Sales and other Div to get into the upward trend.

Bear in mind, the previous tenacious Empire called FM & Network Planning under a certain "wizards" have been deposed and units merged to support the biz activties.

We have began on a bright note unlike previous mgmt and we can only do better once the transition on new products takes place and the vocal communication from what used to be the internal IT/Tech/Product dingbat heads are heard upon.

You obviously feel strongly about this issue. If you really do have balls, instead of taking cheap shots in public, why don't you:
A. Write an email directly to Afzal telling him in detail what the real issues are
B. Post your real frustrations on the TIME e-Forum
C. Speak to People about your HR issues
D. Get the fuck out and go work somewhere else (The Pok Brothers Factory across the road is hiring, you'll have to get your hands dirty making pork dumplings - but then again you do sound like a dumb pig)

Mate - this is a free world and you can choose where you want to work. Times are tough so its best you just get on with it and shut the fuck up.

Oh and its a little too late to bitch about all this. The new management HAS turned the company around. Cerita lama la.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real income.
It's all about how to select a proper partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

cool down bro, i've been knowing jesu in digi for the past few years. we all know that he is an asshole playing dirty politics around. there was once i heard people attempt to splash acids on his face. no worries bro, there are others out there want to get his life skinned.

Wahai sekalian
Allah sedang memerhatikan segalanya
Dia yang Maha Tahu
Kenapa kita mengabaikan ajaran kita
Ayat dan perkataan yang kita hasratkan adalah tanggungjawab masing masing
Sabar dan beriman

Pak Ustaz, pertama, apa yg kene mengena mengunakan Allah dalam posting nih. Agak kecewa, kerana kalo nak sabar dan tunaikan tanggungjawab kena ada tempat dan masanyer. Sabar dan beriman hanya diakhirat saje bro.keja cam haprak juga..baik ko bungkus dan jual nasi lemak lagi bagus..

HR: please take note, please refer to cctv records and check out those assholes doing bad jobs and being lazying around during day and night shifts, there are lots of team leaders and your company puppies and kittens playing sleeping and watching videos and eating drinking partying some lepaking in night shifts leaving their responsibilities behind they go for shift breaks for hours and back at 6.50am and say good morning Dato GH or Dato tracy.Ahhhh i guess HR also the same.....
