Welcome to the North American Productivity Workshop XI

June 8-12, 2020

NAPW has long been established as a major biennial conference on the topics of productivity, efficiency and performance analysis. Following the successful NAPW X, we expect a large and diverse body of participants to attend NAPW XI in Miami. This year's theme is especially important to the Miami Herbert Business School, Sustainable Productivity. Sustainable productivity encapsulates enduring growth and process improvements, a healthy workforce, and surrounding operational environment, a regular flow of new ideas and innovations, and an unwavering optimism about the direction of the firm. The school recently launched the only STEM certified Masters in Sustainable Business and the Miami Herbert Business School is the only academic building in the state of Florida to have achieved LEED Gold certification. Submission for presentation on all areas related to the measurement, assessment, and character of sustainable productivity are invited. Submissions on the theory and application of economics, econometrics, statistics, management science and operational research related to problems in the areas of productivity and efficiency measurement more broadly are highly encouraged. Our aim is to have a conference program that features all popular techniques and methodologies within the field, including stochastic frontier analysis and data envelopment analysis. We also welcome papers on broader issues related to measuring, understanding, incentivizing and improving the productivity and performance of firms, public services, and industries.

Registration ends on May 1, 2020.
