Transforming New Zealand Businesses - It's Not Luck!

Transforming New Zealand Businesses - It's Not Luck!


British Theory of Constraints ‘guru’ John Tripp travels down under this November to join INTENT Group Limited (INTENT) in hosting a series of events around the North Island focused on helping kiwi businesses transform and flourish.

New Zealand is trailing behind advanced OECD countries in productivity and per capita income levels. A working paper published in April this year by the New Zealand Productivity Commission “An International Perspective on the New Zealand Productivity Paradox” remarks that our country’s policy settings are expected to generate GDP per capita 20% above the OECD average. However we currently sit more than 20% below the average.

The paper identifies some of the main influences causing this productivity gap, such as New Zealand being disadvantaged by its geographic location and limited access to markets and suppliers. Also highlighted is NZ businesses limited Research and Development focus, which is among the lowest in the OECD. This under investment in knowledge-based capital, and the low quality of NZ managers, are significant contributors to New Zealand’s economic under-performance.

Passionate about transforming New Zealand’s performance culture, INTENT have engaged John to help them host six events designed to educate on the Theory of Constraints (TOC) and help anyone wanting to transform their business, process, operation or effectiveness. . . . and become a World Class Performer.

‘It’s Not Luck!” Breakfast Briefings and Workshop Sessions are taking place in Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington between 3rd and 5th November 2014.

Increasing their understanding of principles such as TOC, which helps to identify the major constraints facing businesses, will help New Zealand companies flourish and therefore improve, not only the performance gap in OECD rankings, but the country’s overall productivity.
