According to PPPS Dean, Professor Datin Dr. Mariam Abd. Latip, the retreat was also to review the delivery system of their services to their clients.
She said, the focus of the retreat this time was an PPPS staff innovation project presention that had been proposed and planned since early 2015 by Deputy Registrar, Aidah Noordin.
“The individual staff innovation presentation conducted for the very first time at PPPS indirectly would train staff to think creatively to produce new innovations in their work.
“This staff innovation project will also take into account the urpose of the annual performance evaluation by First Supervising Officer (PPP) and Second Supervising Officer (PPK),” she said during the opening of the retreat.
The programme also reviewed all forms used by each section in PPPS besides looking at improvements that are made in accordance with the new Postgraduate Studies method approved this year.
They included efforts to realise PPPS’ intention to use forms online to facilitate students access and processing could be made in the shortest time possble.
The retreat was described as another paradigm shift for PPPS in improving the quality of its services thereby producing innovative staff and moving towards university excellence. – SS (fl)
