Business Strategy and Skills in New Zealand
AbstractThis paper summarises the results from two projects that investigated skills in New Zealand businesses. The first – The Impact of Skills on New Zealand Firms – combined three different surveys to investigate the availability of skills and skilled workers both within the firm and their ability to source them from the market. The second – Management Matters in New Zealand – benchmarked management practices in medium and large New Zealand manufacturers against their peers in 16 other countries.
