On 5th December 2021, Bursa Malaysia Berhad released the 4th and 5th Guidebooks for its Public Listed Companies Transformation (PLCT) Programme.
The PLCT Programme, which Bursa Malaysia officially launched on 2nd March 2022, is a voluntary initiative that enables all public listed companies (PLCs) in Malaysia to participate, regardless of their size, industry or shareholding.
The programme's primary objective is to enhance Corporate Malaysia's stature and increase the appeal of investing in PLCs through improvements in various areas, including the financial position, corporate governance, and sustainability of PLCs.
The PLCT Programme features five digital guidebooks that provide best practices, guidance, benchmarks, and case studies to help PLCs drive their transformation in the areas covered by each guidebook.
The 4th Guidebook
The 4th Guidebook, titled "Being Digitally Enabled," highlights the opportunities, benefits and imperatives for companies to adopt Digital Enablement, ultimately leading to notable improvements in overall performance and instability.
This Guidebook focuses on how PLCs can derive benefits from Digital Enablement along the 4 dimensions:
Enhancing customer experience
Empowering people and driving change
Harnessing operational efficiencies
Creating new business models
While this Guidebook does not focus on technology developments, given how rapidly technologies evolve, many technological aspects have been included to illustrate the implementation aspects of key propositions.
Global and local examples and case studies, as well as practice aids, have also been included wherever possible to augment the principles and propositions outlined in this Guidebook to provide a better appreciation of the ‘how-to’ aspects. The 4th Guidebook and a snapshot of its contents can be downloaded:-

The 5th Guidebook
The 5th Guidebook, titled ‘Contributing Towards Nation Building’, focuses on how PLCs can contribute to and benefit from nation-building efforts.
It highlights the attributes of nation-building and the roles of businesses, government, and society in creating value for PLCs in the following areas:
Sustaining economic growth and productivity
Cultivating future readiness, well-being and inclusion of talent
Fostering stronger public-private partnerships
Throughout the Guidebook, various real-life examples and case studies have been included to provide insights to appreciate the value creation areas above better.
Indicative metrics and the associated nation-building macro-indicators have also been included to enable PLCs to measure the progress and impact of their nation-building efforts.
