4th Annual Performance Conference, 2016

Date to be confirmed

Having visited Melbourne in 2012, Sydney in 2013 and Brisbane in 2014 and taking a break
in 2015, our intention is to run the 4th Annual Performance Conference in New Zealand.
Once again the UIC will be running this in conjunction with our friends at the UITP.


Who should attend?
Performance Managers and Directors
Commissioners, Public Transport Authorities and operators
Operational Managers with performance responsibility
People responsible for driving change on their networks
Public transport professionals interested in improving their services

The benefits of attending
The conference will provide you with an opportunity to:
(1) Meet people from other organisations, states and countries to learn about what they are doing in performance management
(2) Hear interesting speakers and see how performance management and improvement happens elsewhere
(3) Contribute to the development of best practice approaches to performance management and improvement
(4) Get up to date with the latest thinking and developments
(5) Clear your brain and focus on performance


The programme and speakers
The programme for 2016 will follow the highly successful formula established in previous years providing a variety of learning, structured networking opportunities and fun for all participants.

We'll be aiming for a senior Keynote Speaker, a mixture of speakers from operators and authorities across New Zealand and Australia alongside an international speaker. If you've got an interesting performance topic you'd like to speak about, please get in touch.

We will post details once planning for the event has begun in earnest.

What is Performance Management?
There are many aspects of ‘performance’.
Different organisations and industries measure different things. This conference will focus on ‘Operational Performance’ – principally the measurement and management of delays and cancellations.
Whatever the mode, there is a plan i.e. the timetable. On any day, there is variation from the plan. The objective of Performance Management is to understand the causes of variation from the plan and then:
(1) On the day run as close to the plan as possible
(2) Gather data to identify actions to get closer to the plan over time
(3) Gather data that helps to improve the plan next time round
(4) Report results to those who need to know
