Fellows and Memberships
Fellows of WAPS are the Driving Force behind Productivity Development

Fellows of WAPS

WAPS recognizes eminent productivity professionals across the globe from Academia, Industry, Research, Governments and NGOs by inducting them as Fellows of WAPS. WAPS has inducted more than 500 Fellows during the last five decades.

Fellows of WAPS are selected through a rigorous screening process that begins with nomination and recommendation by any current Fellow of WAPS. Nominated candidates, after approved by the WAPS Board, are inducted as Fellows by presenting to them a Fellow Certificate and a Medallion — usually at a World Productivity Congress.

Fellows of WAPS are also Honorary Members of WAPS.

The some 300+ active Fellows of WAPS are located in different parts of the globe, covering the Americas, the Carribean, U.K. and Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Oceania, giving the Academy global perspectives and our Fellows unique opportunities to collaborate and contribute to world productivity development.
