LMGIFY | How Free Spotify Premium with Maxis One Plan Works and How to Subscribe/Unsubscribe It

Yes, as a lot of Maxis One Plan users may not know, their Maxis One Plan 98, 128, 158 and 188 actually comes with free Spotify Premium subscription from 14 December 2015 to 30 September 2016.

The last Maxis-Spotify promotion I took part back in early 2014 was a RM10-per-month price cut offer. It was bad experience, that it does not come with free mobile data, and will not cut off automatically when the offer ended. Therefore, I had to set a calendar to remind myself from unsubscribing it, and it took me 30 minutes of troubleshoot with the customer service to figure how to unsubscribe the service. End up actually I only need to disconnect from WIFI to do it on the Maxis network.

And yes, this is what this article all about. In order to trigger the free Spotify Premium subscription or unsubscribe from it, all you need to do is to access the Maxis Spotify Portal on Maxis network. How to do it? Just turn off your phone WIFI and use the mobile data to open that page, then you'll see the subscribe/unsubscribe button.

The good part of this promotion is that it comes with 15GB of free data dedicated for Spotify music/podcast streaming. While the bad part is, that it seems like, it is STILL WILL NOT going to unsubscribe automatically when the offer ends. Thus you'll find Spotify subscription charges in your monthly phone bill when the offer ends, if they did not renew the offer or come out with new offer.

Blog | The Need of Change in Organisational Culture for Companies to Survive Through the Experience Era

In the past decade, digital natives are struggling to work in a half-transformed digital working environment, due to the difficulties of change management led by, in most organisation, senior managements, who are either digital immigrants, or so-called 'digital dinosaur'.

But it is not just digitalisation that has happened over the past decade, the world has entered the post-digitalisation era, which somewhat referred as 'Experience Era', which the workforce gradually popularised by digital wisdoms, as defined by Marc Prensky in his work.

For most established companies that are struggling to survive the transformation of post-digitalisation, the organisation culture has to be redesigned through a human-centred approach to achieve experiential excellence at every level from workgroup to the company as a whole.

Besides, the change management for the organisation cultural realignment has to be from top-down, and to aim for breakthrough innovations. Specifically, the senior management team has to be lean and agile, and the middle management has to be empowered by top management to take more risks, for corresponding reward as well as consequences, for them to feel responsible, to take ownership, and to be proud of their own work.

This is not going to be easy, making change happen will never be easy. But change is necessary, to make this world a better place, to keep the fishes in the net, to stop the bleeding caused by the slow response to a fast-changing world.

As for the operation levels, most of the employees are either new recruits or inexperienced, they are responsive to change of organisational culture when change happens at their superior level. So they're cool, no worries.
