How building management excellence ensures improved productivity
The Ogun State former Head of Service, Lanre Bisiriyu has said that poor management practices at all levels were behind the slow developmental pace recorded so far in the country.
Bisiriyu stated this while delivering a lecture titled, ‘Building Management Excellence for Improved Productivity, at the 60th anniversary of the Nigerian Institute of Management (Chartered), held at the Abeokuta chapter of the institute.
He maintained that the level of resources and human management in the country was at a pandemic level, adding that to drive productivity, there was the need to build excellent capacity around the workforce.
Describing management as a way of optimally utilising resources to achieve set objectives, Bisiriyu said that it was worrisome that most Nigerian leaders have despised proper planning, effective organisation, and time management in the running of the country’s affairs.
“Management 101 defines management to be the systematic way of optimally utilising resources to achieve set objectives to the satisfaction of shareholders, owners, and members.
“How then have almost all of us come to despise proper planning, effective organisation, sincere leadership, corruption-proof controlling, logical time management?” he queried.
He commended the institute for demonstrating management excellence throughout its 60 years of existence through its charter, code of conduct, programmes, and practices, saying that members should live up to their calling as professional managers.
