Nik Mutasim Nik Ab. Rahman, Nur Atiqah Abdullah, Khairul Akmaliah Adham, Norazila Mat

Abstract


ABSTRACT

The objective of this article is to share the authors’ understanding of the concept of managerial or executive competencies from the Islamic perspective. The paper discusses managerial competencies models developed by Western researchers and compares them with the Islamic models. The striking differences between the two approaches are in each model’s philosophy and stance. The Islamic model holds firmly to the divine principles, which serve as a foundation for managers to achieve their worldly goals, without separating life in this world from life in the hereafter. On the contrary, conventional models are developed based on culture and value of thought.

Keywords: Managerial competencies; conventional perspective; Islamic perspective

ABSTRAK

Objektif artikel ini adalah untuk berkongsi pemahaman pengarang tentang konsep kompetensi pengurusan atau eksekutif dari perspektif Islami. Beberapa model kompetensi pengurusan yang dibangunkan oleh penulis Barat dikemukakan. Model-model ini dibandingkan dengan model-model Islami. Perbezaan ketara antara kedua-dua model terletak pada aspek falsafah dan pegangan masing-masing. Model Islami berpaut kuat kepada prinsip ketuhanan bersumberkan Quran dan Hadis yang meletakkan prinsip ini sebagai dasar dalam mencapai matlamat keduniaan tanpa memisahkan kehidupan di dunia ini dengan kehidupan di akhirat. Sebaliknya model konvensional dibentuk berasaskan nilai pemikiran dan juga budaya.

Kata kunci: Kompetensi pengurusan; pandangan konvensional; pandangan Islami
