The First International Productivity Forum is a key platform for discussing global productivity issues.

It will bring together over 1000 representatives of Russian and foreign government authorities, international companies, and Labor Productivity and Employment Support project contributors. The business agenda will showcase the best practices from Japan, Germany, France, Luxembourg, and other countries with the world’s best labor productivity, as well as case studies on operational development and best practice integration.

Dear friends, my esteemed colleagues!

The International Productivity Forum is a key platform that facilitates the discussion of productivity-related issues.

The process of implementing measures to enhance productivity through lean technologies has so far engaged 36 regions across Russia. More than 700 companies are enjoying expert support and can now make use of the opportunities provided by national development institutions. Improved productivity should be one of the pivotal drivers that determine the growth of the Russian economy.

We are committed to developing and continuously strengthening state support measures to achieve national goals in a close dialogue with business. To this end, we need to analyze corporations’ international experience and best practices, and combine cutting-edge international approaches with our own expertise.

The Forum business agenda will feature the best practices from countries with leading productivity indicators, as well as case studies on operational development and best practice integration.

I firmly believe that the International Productivity Forum will generate the synergetic effect needed to empower Russia in redefining key tools to boost productivity.

I am delighted to welcome our guests to the International Productivity Forum!

Currently, productivity-related issues are central to the global economic agenda. We are witnessing the process by which the world’s best approaches and practices are being integrated both at a national level and by the largest global manufacturers. The Productivity and Employment Support national project, which we initiated in 2018, has already become part of cutting-edge global experience.

The International Productivity Forum aims to be the key venue for developing an international partnership and generating new collaborative solutions for improving productivity. Today, we have the opportunity to outline the Russian systematic approach to increasing the efficiency of businesses and non-manufacturing organizations. We also have a chance to exchange best practices with our foreign colleagues.

I am sure that this interaction will be useful for all of the forum’s participants and will provide a fresh stimulus for the creation of major initiatives that are aimed at developing the Russian economy.

Welcome to the International Productivity Forum!

The Productivity and Employment Support national project was initiated two years ago. A wave of innovations was launched among Russian enterprises that not only had an impact on production processes, but also significantly altered the business community’s mentality.

Today, the project’s participants understand that building up a production culture will give rise to a more tangible and long-lasting economic effect than investing in production modernization. Enterprise leaders and personnel want to multiply their own successes and delve into methods of economical production, since they have seen from experience how the latter work.

The International Productivity Forum is an important step in the project’s implementation. For the first time, representatives of Russian and foreign authorities, entrepreneurs, and best practice informants, whose experience is used extensively by companies all over the world, are all gathering in one place. This is a unique opportunity to share expertise.

We will be discussing a broad range of topics, from the role of state institutions and state regulation of business, to staff training programs. I am sure that, through these discussions, necessary and timely solutions for enhancing methods of improving productivity will be developed.

I hope that all of our participants’ endeavours are productive!

"City and business: how to enhance productivity through effective coordination"

Nowadays cities, as well as countries, compete with each other globally over quality of life for their citizens and business environment. According to the UN, the urban population will grow by 2.5 billion people by 2050, the equivalent of 68% of the world’s population (compared to 55% at present). These are cities that are becoming key growth drivers (due to the effects of concentration and diversity) and providing a significant amount of jobs, as well as new platforms and resources for establishing and developing new businesses. Cities are of particular interest to innovative and science-based companies. According to OECD data, the size of a city directly affects its average productivity, which increases by 2-5% when an urban population doubles. National productivity is determined by the productivity of its major cities which, in their turn, represent a collective reflection of the companies’ productivity operating in these cities.

  • What exactly is a city’s productivity and what does it depend on?
  • In what way do the specifics of urban management processes impact upon a city’s productivity?
  • What defines the talent pool available to a city?
  • What exactly can businesses receive from and give to the city so that they both develop more efficiently and improve their productivity?

“Benchmarking and International Cooperation in Performance Analysis: Main Efficiency Drivers, Global Leaders’ Strategy Aspects”

According to the latest OECD Compendium of Productivity Indicator 2019, labor productivity in the OECD region is still showing poor growth: since 2010, the annual rates have dwindled to as little as 0.9%, which is about one half of the figures we could observe before the crisis. In particular, labor productivity growth is slowing down in OECD nations that had fairly low labor productivity in the first place, which hinders further convergence.

  • How does labor productivity benchmarking help define economic development issues?
  • How can one improve efficiency by continuously comparing oneself to global leaders?
  • Case studies on using benchmarking tools in order to design domestic strategies for improving productivity. Which indicators must be regarded as a priority when working on productivity improvement projects?

Competitiveness. Supporting Foreign Market Entry

In the current economic context, it is extremely difficult for companies to remain indifferent to rapidly developing global processes that affect the allocation of financial resources, the fight for customers, and integration into international production chains. Global competition has its own rules and conditions, both on the domestic and the international markets. The potential for emerging onto foreign markets, however, is inextricably linked to the operational efficiency of an enterprise and the investment appeal of its business.

  • What tools are most effective for operating on foreign markets?
  • How are labor productivity and export potential linked?
  • Is investment a two-way street or do we still have to earn investments?
  • Acceleration programs for export-oriented business.

Increasing productivity in state companies and state corporations: how to achieve goals?

Labor productivity shows how efficiently resources were used in the manufacturing process. The standard methods for calculating it take into account not the quality, but the quantity of changes in manufacturing. A nominal increase in labor productivity can occur due to a decrease in the number of employees, while in the long run it is more effective to invest in new technology, conduct motivational programs for personnel, and integrate lean production principles. Currently, we are faced with the problem of formulating a calculation method that will take into consideration and clearly show which factors specifically lead to increased efficiency in enterprises.

  • What methods for calculating labor productivity already exist? Which methods are being used abroad?
  • What KPIs are private companies setting themselves regarding increasing labor productivity?
  • Can we use a “one-size-fits-all” method (a universal formula) for calculating the productivity of all companies? Does a productivity calculation formula need to account for the specifics of a company’s activity?
  • When calculating productivity dynamics, can we come to understand the factors and tools that have affected productivity? Can we evaluate the impact of each factor?
  • Which growth dynamic of labor productivity should be targeted?

The Automation and Digitization of Processes for Increasing Productivity

Using digital technologies and labor productivity improvement techniques helps generate much more added value per enterprise employee, which, in turn, makes it possible to raise wages and release labor. At the same time, however, a digital transformation may also lead to labor cuts; the issue of robots being a reason for layoffs is one of the most hotly-debated trends.

  • So how does one choose the best corporate policy on digital transformation, and which government regulation measures are applicable here?
  • Which steps should the state take in order to support further training?
  • Is there conflict between introducing new operation technologies and lean practices?
  • How do digital processes impact productivity improvement and the country’s overall technological development?
  • How do they create a new competitive niche? How can digital operations increase productivity? How effective can they be?

The customer journey and mechanisms for increasing productivity

Whatever market a company is operating on, b2b or b2c, any change in customer preferences will trigger organizational transformation, in some way or other. Thus, while a company’s management can formulate a vision and specify transformational targets, as well as develop plans to achieve them, the implementation thereof would involve a wide variety of company employees. Value generated as a result of transformation can be achieved only through the consistent collective actions of dozens, hundreds, thousands – and in some cases tens of thousands - of employees who are responsible for developing and implementing changes in a company’s environment and operational practices. During the session, the following issues will be discussed:

  • How it is possible to modify approaches, rethink processes and improve productivity from the perspective of the customer journey
  • Why a cross-functional team is often the key to success; the principles of organizing one
  • The role of the manufacturer in large-scale transformation – how to improve the prospects for success and achieve solid performance.

Non-financial Measures for Supporting Productivity: Global Practice and Russian Experience

In line with its national goals, the Russian Federation must make a big breakthrough in the core non-resource sectors of the economy. By 2024, labor productivity growth needs to reach 5%.

Achieving such ambitious goals is possible only by adopting an integrated approach to productivity both at the state level and the level of each individual company. However, financial instruments do not always bring about the long-term effect of increasing productivity.

  • How do international and domestic companies work to improve productivity or business performance?
  • Which non-financial instruments do companies use today?
  • Corporate culture, continuous improvement, manager and employee incentives, personnel management system: what difficulties are companies encountering?
  • Are there any differences in the event of global business changes depending on the country and mentality of its people?
  • How can you monitor the impact of corporate culture, training, mentoring, and intangible incentives on business?
  • How can we promote non-financial motivational practices in a company?
  • Which successful practices for non-material motivation already exist on the Russian market?
  • The key actions of senior managers and line managers for integrating non-material motivation.

Finding Employment in a World of Digital Technology and Automated Production. Employee Displacement. Employee Training and Further Training

The lay-off of personnel as a result of the automation of production is one of the key challenges faced by society today. Accelerating digital transformation shifts the requirements for employee skills. By the early 2030s, approximately 30% of jobs in many large OECD countries may be at risk of automation.

  • What jobs are at risk?
  • What skills are needed?
  • What is the current level of development of digital and key skills?
  • What steps should be taken to train and improve the skills of employees whose jobs will be affected by digitalization?

Best corporate training practices/Corporate training of company personnel as a factor in increasing labor productivity

Professional and motivated staff is one of a company’s most valuable assets. In the modern world, however, in order to be competitive and keep up with continual and rapid changes, constant staff development and training is required, as well as the formation of a pool of human resources. With this aim in mind, many major companies successfully operate corporate universities and create corporate accelerators of professional competences. They even carry out staff training at the level of secondary and higher vocational education, by entering into partnerships agreements with educational organizations.

  • The challenge of our time: why is a process of continual training necessary in companies?
  • Soft skills vs hard skills. Which habits are most requisite in a corporate environment?
  • Which trends in corporate training are currently relevant? Which training formats are most effective?
  • How does the quality of personnel influence a company’s business indicators?
  • What are the best practices for corporate training and education on the Russian market?
