Working experience and occupation
General Tan Sri Abdul Aziz underwent Officer Cadet training and was commissioned into the Royal Malay Regiment (RMR) in 1971. He started his young military career as a Platoon Commander in the 3rd RMR and subsequently climbed up the ladder in the military hierarchy. On 9 September 2004, General Tan Sri Abdul Aziz was promoted to General and given the ultimate responsibility of leading the Malaysian Army. He was later appointed as the 16th Chief of Defence Force on February 2007. He has a wide repertoire of experiences at the international level. He was Assistant Defence Attach in the Philippines from 1981 to 1983, and served NATO as Malaysian Contingent Commander in Bosnia & Herzegovina from 1996 to 1997. He made notable contributions when he was at the helm of the Malaysian Army, such as revitalising the Armys mission and vision, known as 2 10 + 10, and introducing the Balanced Scorecard as an assessment instrument for the Service. He made similar contributions that led to the inception of the Balanced Scorecard and KPI in the MAF Headquarters as well as producing a sequel to his previous work, The Marksman in the 21st Century. His most significant legacy is the Armed Forces capability development plan, called the Fourth Dimension MAF (4D MAF) a transformation era towards becoming a highly credible, fully integrated and balanced force-after-next in all dimensions, placing emphasis on jointness and inter-operability among the three Services. His managerial acumen was duly recognised with his appointment as Adjunct Professor to the Management Centre of the International Islamic University, Malaysia in 2008. He led an illustrious career and rendered remarkable service to the nation and the MAF for four decades. He is again reenlisted into the Government services in May 2010 and posted as the Ambassador of Malaysia to France, accredited as well to Portugal and Monaco. He was the former Chairman of Bank Kerjasama Rakyat Malaysia.
