The World Productivity Congress is the premier global convention dealing with productivity development. It is organized on a partnership basis between the World Confederation of Productivity Science and a host organization which is normally a Network Partner of the WCPS.
The Congress brings together a distinguished group of leading businessmen, industrialists, scholars, politicians, administrators and productivity experts from around the globe and from all sectors of industry, commerce and public service. It is this breadth of expertise and experience that makes the Congress an important event for shaping future governmental approaches to productivity development, and for defining future organizational strategies.
Though each Congress has a particular theme, and specific sub-themes or tracks around which the program is structured, the Congress is industry neutral. Similarly, though a particular Congress may – for obvious reasons connected with its geographic location – include particular elements relating to a particular region or nation, the Congress is essentially geographically neutral.
Presentations at the Congress include both invited presentations (keynotes and plenary sessions) and presentations resulting from a Call for Papers to the academic and business communities.
A highlight of each World Productivity Congress is the induction of new Fellows of WAPS.
