2020 Campaign


As we meet a new decade, experts agree that Australia’s prosperity is at risk if we don’t take bold action.

In 2019, ADAPT has validated this through thousands of interviews with local executives responsible for over half of our GDP, and millions of staff.

Despite decades of economic growth, many are struggling in today’s intensely competitive and unpredictable environment. Productivity is too low, and resources are restricted.

We have the capital, talent and history of innovation, but complacency, risk aversion, and cut costs have driven a consistent decline.

Good news is that we have the resources to reverse this, to boost productivity and efficiency through the applied use of modern IT and advancing business skills.

To give the leaders of our regional organisations the competencies they need, the theme of “Empowering Execution” will underpin ADAPT’s 2020 Edge events, and Research and Advisory services.

Below we reveal exactly what this means and what must be done.
