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.
