High Performance Namibia…one step closer

On behalf of Maastricht School of Management and the HPO Center I visit countries all over the world. Not only “privileged” countries like the US, UK or Germany, but also many third-world countries. Visiting students and executives in these countries gives me enormous energy. Emerging markets and ambitious people. Countries like Namibia.
André de Waal in NamibiëLast week I visited the Namibia Business School (NBS). Together with Mac Hengari, Director of the Namibia Business School (NBS), I signed a co-operation agreement between the NBS and the HPO Center to improve the long-term performance of many organizations in Namibia. Together we are going to help organizations to benefit from our High Performance Organization (HPO) Framework.
After giving several presentations on national television, I gave a lecture about HPOs and Performance Management for Namibian directors and senior managers. The energy, ambition and critical and imaginative questions from the audience gives me great hope that this co-operation will strive organizations towards long-term high performance!

And I know the HPO Framework works not only in Europe, US or Asia. Previous visits and HPO-diagnosis with e.g. Iringa University College in Tanzania and De Beers Marine in Namibia show promising results.

More to come in my new book (May 2012), including some sizzling HPO cases from Asia and South-America as well…
