THE National College for Educational Leadership (NCEL), in partnership with the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU), will host a leadership development webinar focusing on the Blue Ocean Strategy.

The webinar will be held today at The University of the West Indies (UWI) Regional Headquarters building, under the theme ‘Achieving Sustained Organisational Success: the Blue Ocean Perspective’.

Addressing a JIS Think Tank Thursday, principal director of NCEL, Dr Taneisha Ingleton ,said the college has taken on a new approach to leadership and planning, and that is the Blue Ocean perspective.

The Blue Ocean Strategy is a management and leadership paradigm that focuses on how to eliminate competition by focusing on uncontested market space and making competition irrelevant.

Meanwhile, president of the CMU Professor Fritz Pinnock, who will be the main presenter, will also lead a panel discussion as part of the webinar. Members of the panel will include principal of the UWI Professor Dale Webber; president of the Northern Caribbean University, Dr Lincoln Edwards; labour market specialist at the Inter-American Development Bank, Fernando Yittzack Pavon; and chief executive officer of the Wisynco Group Limited, William Mahfood.

Professor Pinnock said the Blue Economy Strategy has been practised at the CMU over the last 12 years and this has helped the institution in its transition and transformation, moving student enrolment from 278 to more than 6,000; the staff complement from 38 to more than 900; and a budget of under $40 million a year to $2.5 billion.

Dr Ingleton said the webinar will be an exciting discussion involving powerful individuals who would have used the Blue Ocean Strategy in their own spaces, and will put forward how the education system can do better with this emerging perspective.

The NCEL head noted that all principals and teachers across the education system will be exposed to the webinar, which is scheduled to start at 4:00 pm. She explained that while there will be a seated audience of over 180 people, the event will be streamed live on platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, targeting the more than 1,000 principals and 26,000 teachers within the education system.

Webinars are staple development-intervention strategies that are hosted quarterly by the college.

“We are moving away from leadership development in closed spaces where we can only accommodate a few persons. The aim is to get more persons exposed to leadership development intervention, and the webinar is the approach the NCEL is using,” Dr Ingleton said.
