A hunger to stop hunger

I am still in Africa but now on vacation. What has impressed me by the productivity people I have met is that they see productivity as a means to several ends ... competitiveness, growth and prosperity certainly ... but even these factors are a means to the end of ending hunger, poverty and division.

At the World Productivity Congress I 'preached' the need to address economic, social and environmental productivities ... Africa seems to have 'bitten the bullet' ... what they need is help to build the infrastructure on which they can deliver higher productivity. The will is there and they are making real progress but they know there is a long way to go.
