Abstract: The International Productivity Conference (IPC) is one of the prestigious public forums of the Asian Productivity Organization (APO,) held on special occasions to celebrate the APO’s attainment of crucial milestones. This year’s gathering is in recognition of the 45th anniversary of hard work to promote the national productivity movement of member countries and it is also the 12th anniversary of the Thailand Productivity Institute’s presence in promoting the productivity movement in Thailand. For each IPC, National Productivity Organizations and the APO Secretariat carefully select emerging productivity topics, for which discussion will strengthen the productivity movement in member countries. This conference has adopted the theme of “Knowledge Management – From Brain to Business” and through it we will showcase outstanding knowledge management applications by globally renowned enterprises from Asia, Europe and the United States.
IPC 2007 continues our tradition of identifying the latest developments among productivity tools and techniques within government, business and at the grassroots level. This year, the International Productivity Conference will showcase the newest techniques, the latest developments and bring the best and the brightest in the world of knowledge management together in one place.
