Jan. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Sigmastrat Corporate Performance Improvement Summit 2012 will be held at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel, Accra, Ghana from September 13 - 15. The Summit seeks to provide the business community with the latest strategies and operating tools through a two day programme of keynote sessions, focus groups and interactive workshops followed by a day of optional post-conference workshops designed to assist you and your stakeholders in: (1) The latest measurement and process improvement techniques to drive business performance, (2) Integrating your performance information to execute change and reach your corporate goals, and (3) Adopting new performance management models and technologies.

The Summit will congregate internationally acclaimed Performance Improvement Experts, business leaders, Corporate Executives and Government officials. This promises to be a grand event.

The event brings together the best and the brightest in the multi-disciplinary field of performance improvement who will share the latest research, innovations, tools, and technologies. We have developed the Summit to offer an intimate and interactive atmosphere where you can meet, interact with, and talk one-on-one to prospective clients and industry practitioners about your product and service offerings.

There will be two days of highly informative interaction, conference networking seminars and workshops.

From finance to human resource experts will sit together and dialogue, share experiences and innovations that will change the face for corporate performance for a long time.

Based on the premise that reaching out for knowledge beyond your organization is critical to understanding the complexities of the business environment, the Sigmastrat Corporate Performance Improvement Summit 2012 offers an array of insights, information and experiences necessary for success.  

It is a fact that, companies and individuals armed with the appropriate information will have a clear advantage over competition.

With over a 500 participants converging from the business world and from all over the nation, the conference is billed to equip participants with information, knowledge and resources needed to learn more about Corporate Continuous Performance Improvement.

In today’s business environment, having a good business strategy isn’t enough to make your company successful. You also need to implement and execute that strategy efficiently. While strategies take many forms-from market entry to competition and operations-and exist at virtually every level and area of an organization, success depends upon their cohesion with one another, alignment to market realities, and flexibility to external forces.

Commoditization, margin pressure and growth requirements are creating pressure to be (and to be considered) "innovative." Many companies tout their new innovation initiatives and cultures, but few are able to truly capitalize on innovation in order to drive profitable organic growth. Too often, innovation is promoted within an enterprise as an end, but the means is neglected - i.e., equipping the enterprise to generate returns that innovation promises (e.g., returns equal the most famously successful, innovative companies). When budgets and investments are made, management and shareholder expectations rise accordingly.

Research findings have determined that success (defined as positive measurable returns) from innovation efforts is not necessarily correlated to size of investment. Instead, the proper approach, capabilities, and systems are much stronger predictors of sustained innovation performance than R&D budgets.

Innovation efforts generate sustained positive results when organizations are able to identify and successfully implement the right innovation system - striking a balance across the four strategic factors of Leadership, Process, People, and Leverage, and overlaying an appropriate organizational model and approach. A properly developed and tuned system, coupled with a well-considered innovation strategy (giving direction for the innovation system), results in an exceptional return to shareholders. For instance, Apple's renowned innovation system helped them outpace industry competitors and the NASDAQ to generate $125B in shareholder value between 2002 and 2007, despite R&D expenditures one tenth the size of a number of their competitors' R&D budgets. To generate results, approach, capabilities, and systems trump spend levels.

Competitive analysis is a key cornerstone of business planning and continuous improvement. It will provide your business with the ability to understand its strengths and areas for improvement, understand cause and effect relationship within the business and set realistic targets across multiple areas of the business including financial, employees and customers.

The Kaizen principles of waste reduction, no tolerance for errors, and a customer focus can only be realised through an approach that involves and engages staff across the organisation. Though the initial Kaizen engagement may take place at management level, a LEAN Kaizen implementation actively involving those with hands-on knowledge of the work by means of a Kaizen Blitz event.

Indeed, businesses in Ghana do not operate in isolation from the rest of those in other parts of the world, hence the gradual overtaking by expatriate institutions. There must therefore be the conscious effort to brainstorm, cross fertilise, discuss and hear from experts who have been into it or who have applied certain performance improvement techniques in similar situations and have seen it work.

The event brings together the best and the brightest in the multi-disciplinary field of performance improvement who will share the latest research, innovations, tools, and technologies. We have developed the Summit to offer an intimate and interactive atmosphere where you can meet, interact with, and talk one-on-one to prospective clients and industry practitioners about your product and service offerings.
