ABSTRACT
The article reports on the deliberations of the 2008 World Productivity Congress in South Africa. Deliberations regarding the path to competitive success ranged from identifying key productivity drivers, to building sustainable enterprises, to the implications of global human resource migration. The principles of environmentally and economically sustainable productivity and competitiveness were deemed suited to alleviating poverty in African communities and enabling the economic self-actualization of African individuals.
