As part of SSIA’s focus to ensure the semiconductor ecosystem in Singapore continues to grow and flourish, we see the importance to nurture leadership development by creating industry-wide programs to accelerate and increase the pool of future local leaders. With that in mind, the Singapore Semiconductor Leadership Accelerator (SSLA), a custom program, was designed to inspire emerging technical and business leaders to continue creating revolutionary possibilities with semiconductors. This SSLA program was conceived as part of the Singapore Semiconductor Vision (SSV) 2020, a taskforce comprising the private and public sectors to increase competitiveness in Singapore’s semiconductor manufacturing industry, representing over S$56B of annual manufacturing output and employing over 44,000 people. The task force proposed three recommendations: strengthen global competitiveness through innovation, enhance public-private R&D partnerships, and nurture leadership development.

The Singapore Semiconductor Leadership Accelerator (SSLA) is a custom program designed to inspire emerging technical and business leaders to continue creating revolutionary possibilities with semiconductors. Delivered as two modules, the program is an immersive hands-on learning experience designed to accelerate personal and professional growth for leaders to succeed in the increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) global environment; with special emphasis and strong focus on the semiconductor industry.
This program has been co-developed by a strong team of semiconductor industry L&OD practitioners, in partnership with the Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI), Singapore’s premier Centre focused on thought leadership and insights on understanding and operating in Asia.

The program is targeted at senior-level managers and directors who are part of the company’s succession plan with responsibility for strategic decision-making.

Group size
Each session will run with 15-20 participants from the semiconductor/electronics industry.
