Congratulations to Ab. Aziz Yusof (or cordially known as ‘Pak Ajis’ among ISDEV members) for his success in winning the prestigious Anugerah Buku Negara 2013. His award winning book entitled ‘Pengurusan Pembangunan Organisasi: Teori dan Amalan’ (Development Management of Organization: Theory and Practice) published by Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (DBP) received the highest accolade for books in the Management Category.
The award was presented by the Yayasan Pembangunan Buku Negara (YPBN) in conjunction with the 1Malaysia Book Expo held at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur. The expo was held from 11 until 15 December, 2013.
Ab. Aziz, a RISDEV student (postgraduate in research mode at ISDEV) is pursuing his PhD on ‘Penilaian Prestasi Maklumbalas 360 Darjah: Satu Analisis Teoretis Dari Perspektif Islam’ (360 Degrees Performance Appraisal: A Theoretical Analysis from the Islamic Perspective”. He is also currently a member of the academics as a Senior Lecturer at the College of Business, Universiti Utara Malaysia.
It is hoped that with this success, Ab. Aziz has inspired and motivated other students to embark in writing. Living with a daily hectic schedule is not to be used as an excuse from the pursuit of writing as has been exemplified by Ab. Aziz.
Congratulations Ab. Aziz!
