World Productivity Congress

Professor Mike Dillon

Professor Mike Dillon
The 19th World Productivity Congress – WPC2020 on Productivity and Innovation was due to have taken place on May 7-8th, 2020 in Bengaluru, India. Unfortunately, due to advice given by health experts in relation to the Corona Virus situation, we have no option but to postpone the event. We hope to reschedule when the global health and travel situations are back to normal. Watch this space!

Our mission

The WCPS links individuals and organizations around the globe who are committed to (or want to explore) productivity improvement as a means of creating wealth and improving the quality of life for regions and nations.

We take a broad, inclusive and holistic view of productivity recognizing that to be sustainable, businesses, governments and other organizations have to address social, environmental and economic productivities. We focus on and promote approaches that measure and improve all three facets of SEE productivity.

WCPS works primarily through its two Divisions – the World Network of Productivity Organizations(WNPO) and the World Academy of Productivity Science(WAPS). WCPS identifies and supports WNPO organizations that include both national and regional productivity promotion organizations. WAPS identifies and inducts Fellows who are eminent professionals that devote much of their life-enhancing productivity science development and implementation. In addition, the members of the WCPS Board- who are all experienced productivity professionals – can be called upon to facilitate workshops and conduct training to help others work through their own, tailored approaches to improving productivity.

We organize World Productivity Congresses and a series of smaller, customized regional events to support our network and spread our message. As a global organization, we recognize and celebrate geographic and cultural differences and do not promote a “one size fits all” programme or methodologies.

Book: Productivity Science A Global Movement

Productivity Science. A Global Movement.

Dr. A. N. Saxena
History of the World Confederation of Productivity Science (WCPS) The World Academy of Productivity Science (WAPS)

Thinking aloud, I recalled Benjamin Franklin who once said: “If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either do something worth writing or write something worth reading.”

I realized the same in my life. I do not claim to have done much worthy writing and therefore, let me console myself by documenting the history of WCPS which could provide useful information, could equally serve as a guide to the present generation of productivity practitioners, and be of some benefit to those who will spearhead the global productivity drive in the years to come.
