02 - 04 APRIL 2017


The World Productivity Congress is the premier global convention dealing with productivity development. It is organised on a partnership basis between the World Confederation of Productivity Science (WCPS) and a host organisation 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 shaping future organizational strategies.

The World Productivity Congress has been hosted 17 times since the first congress took place in the United Kingdom in 1969 and the Institute of Management Services was one of its founding members.   The ‘architect’ of its creation – and the first President – was Dr. J.E.Faraday and the first Congress was brought to a close by Admiral of the Fleet The Earl Mountbatten of Burma, it certainly proved to be a memorable occasion and the start of long line of influential Congresses.

Since then the congress has been hosted in several countries such as, the United States, Canada, China, Australia, India, Chile, South Africa, Malaysia, Norway and Sweden. For the first time in the World Productivity Congress hosting history, the 18th Congress will be hosted in the middle east and in particular in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
