Keynote Presentation at Singapore Productivity Conference and Exhibition (SPCE) 2016




Singapore, 1 October 2016 - Annually, Singapore Productivity Conference and Exhibition 2016 (SPCE 2016) aims to become the key event that helps the industry to build capacity and develop capabilities for holistic productivity through innovation, collaboration, technology and people development. The conference will discuss the challenges companies faced in increasing productivity and the strategies for transforming their companies into lean and profitable enterprises.

Talented leaders are the backbone of an organisation. They develop strategic initiatives to grow and preserve the business. Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, in his keynote address at SNEF 30th Anniversary CEO and Employers Summit, highlighted that "a huge part of the responsibility for improving productivity falls on employers and business leaders". He emphasised that leadership is critical in upgrading productivity for businesses.

Leadership also impacts the organisational culture, and plays a part in the productivity of the organisation. Research has shown that highly productive companies, to a high or very high extent, leadership in their companies raise productivity. Hence, this further emphasises the importance of an effective leadership for a successful organisation.

Prof Sattar Bawany, CEO of CEE, will be delivering a Keynote Presentation on "Leadership & Culture for Productivity" on Day 2 of the Conference on 2 November 2016. He will also be a Panellist in the Panel Discussion on "People Development, Culture and Productivity" to be conducted subsequent to the Keynote session.

The Summary of the Keynote Presentation as well as the Resource Materials on the theme of "Leadership & Culture for Productivity" is available here.

2016 Trends in Executive Development

humanresourcesOKLAHOMA CITY - Feb. 1, 2016 -- Employees want leaders who can envision a positive future state for the organization and then engage and inspire the workforce. So say the results of a survey of leaders from 466 of the world's most notable organizations across the globe who participated in 2016 Trends in Executive Development biennial survey.

"People need leadership. We see it in the trends, and we see it in the work every day," says Bonnie Hagemann, CEO of Executive Development Associates. The "2016 Trends in Executive Development: A Benchmark Report" is the product of collaboration between Executive Development Associates (EDA), Pearson TalentLens, and Performance Assessment Network (PAN).

In 2014, the trends showed that the ability to create a compelling vision and engage others around it was the most important capability needed for next generation leaders. That remains true in 2016.

"Organizations globally including those in Asia Pacific need to incorporate the next generation leadership competencies as identified in the Report so as to address the development needs of their rising leaders. Leaders at all levels need to have a broader skill set, one that equips them to think and act globally in a VUCA business environment. They must do so while embracing cross-cultural diversity and cultivating collaborative relationships within and outside their walls. These are the hallmarks of the mind-set needed to develop effective global leaders," says Prof Sattar Bawany, the Managing Director, EDA Asia Pacific and a member of the Research Team. Prof Bawany is concurrently the CEO of Centre for Executive Education (CEE). CEE is the Strategic Partner of EDA in Asia Pacific.
