What can we learn from the Fonterra experiment
Fonterra is New Zealand’s largest company (by revenue), yet its performance is poor. It impacts on many parts of the New Zealand economy. So it is essential for business people outside the dairy industry to take closer interest in Fonterra’s performance and whether the special status it has been given under the law is best for New Zealand.
Our guest speaker Tony Baldwin’s talk with highlight:
- Goals vs outcomes
- Underlying causes
- Options for change
- Key lessons from a governance perspective
- Why it matters and what you can do to help
