Full Story


  • Several members of the Institute’s management team spend the lion’s share of their time out of the office, attending meetings, events, conducting training programmes, interacting with existing members and recruiting new members. Due to the size of membership around the country, a lot of time is also spent travelling to the various regions.
  • A lack of connectivity while on the move was not compatible with the Institute’s focus on professionalism: members and partners expect quick replies to their emails. By early 2009, it had become clear that the Institute needed to find a way to make management more responsive and productive when on the move.
