Most of us will admit that we are not experts in all areas. (Some of us will even admit to not being an expert in any area.)
So, we take advice, help and support from those who know more than we do – or at least we do if we are sensible.
Of course we have to find knowledgeable people who know about our field of operation, or our type of problem.
Some of us use conferences to help us find experts. We can use sector-based events that offer information and presentations form experts in our sector. Or we can use generic events, recognising that many lessons are transferrable across sectors and it is the tools, techniques, approaches and methodologies we should be looking at.
I shall be at the World Productivity Congress shortly (April 2-4) to learn, share, discuss, reflect on issues around productivity – at the global, regional, national and organisational level. I don’t necessarily expect to learn the ‘great secret to productivity improvement’ – but I do hope to hear about developments that will help me refine my own approach to supporting productivity development.
What have I got to lose? Very little.
What have I got to gain? Possibly a great deal.
There is (just about) time to join me – what have you got to lose/gain?
