Australian and New Zealand organisations need to address an important prerequisite for Business Excellence – Process Design & Improvement. It is the worst in the world, according to a leading Australian businessman, who will introduce some easy to implement strategies in front of South Australian business executives at The Executive Connection’s 2010 Leadership Forum this month.

Dr Mark Rehn is CEO of an Australian technology start-up company and teaches leadership and management techniques for world best practice. Over the past 30 years he has worked with more than 100 client organisations, which has given him extensive experience in strategic business planning and deployment across a wide range of public and private sector organisations, including not-for-profit organisations. He specialises in how to best develop continuous improvement capabilities in Australian and New Zealand small and medium enterprises.

His TEC lecture, “Implementing Business Excellence in SMEs” will cover the practical implementation framework for Business Excellence, Strategic Process Improvement, and skills and enhancement frameworks that will help attendees become a better manager and leader.

According to Dr Rehn, a valuable strategic plan is one that is understandable, simplified, and gets the whole team on board. He advocates a one-page strategic plan which focuses on vision and a small number of KPIs around finance, customers, processes and people.

The acclaimed business speaker will be addressing numerous South Australian executives from over 180 TEC member companies, as well as hundreds of TEC members throughout Australia and New Zealand, at regional events held over the coming months.

“By connecting South Australian business leaders in a dynamic group environment with the esteemed Dr Mark Rehn, this TEC Leadership Forum will provide Business Excellence insights and add immediate value to individuals and their companies’ continued improvement,” said South Australian TEC Chair Jerry Kleeman of Kleeman International.

The South Australian TEC attendees are among 14,500 business leaders who have become members of The Executive Connection to enable them to become better leaders, make better decisions, and drive better results for their organisations. TEC membership provides access to new ideas and fresh thinking through monthly peer think-tanks, one-to-one business coaching and speaker presentations.
