UPFRONT : Global input on better management

An impressive lineup of international speakers will be in New Zealand to talk about “Developing management and organisational capability to improve business performance” at the 11th World Congress in December.
It’s the first time the Congress has met in Australasia and is “a fantastic opportunity for New Zealand businesses to take the best international ideas and apply them to their own organisations”, says organiser Robin Mann, director of the Centre of Organisational Excellence Research (COER) at Massey University.
Held over five days in Wellington, the event will feature over 150 speakers from more than 30 countries. These are business leaders and scholars able to provide wealth of practical ideas on how to boost organisational performance, says Mann.
“This is the first and probably the only time that so many top people have come to New Zealand to share their experiences in management and leadership.”
Presentations and workshops are divided into eight main streams: developing business capability, leadership, strategy, customer and market focus, measurement analysis and knowledge management, process management, human resources focus, and health.
The event will include chance to celebrate local ‘world-class’ business leaders. The winner of the New Zealand Business Excellence Award 2006 will be announced, as will the Australian Business Excellence Framework Award winner.
Supporting the Congress are all the main players involved in improving the quality of management in New Zealand, notes NZ Institute of Management’s chief executive David Chapman. These include the NZIM, plus the NZ Business Excellence Foundation, the NZ Organisation for Quality and COER.
“It is unique opportunity for our businesses to learn from international best practice,” says Chapman.
The three-day Congress meeting (December 4-6) will be preceded and followed by specialist workshops. For more information, visit www.worldcongressnz.com
