Food & Fibre Leadership System Research Project

A cohesive leadership framework with supporting systems will provide success criteria that other projects can leverage, to meet the current and future needs of the sector.

A cohesive leadership framework with supporting systems will provide a set of success criteria that other projects can leverage, to meet the current and future needs of the sector.

Phase one of the project looked at ‘The State of Leadership Development in New Zealand’s Food & Fibre Sector’. Initial consultation demonstrated a demand for a high-performance leadership system, underpinned by an academically credentialed framework that can lift the performance and profitability of food and fibre businesses.

Several leadership programmes targeted at varying leadership levels are available, and while many are rated highly by sector leaders, the majority of people are not accessing leadership training. For those who do, the leadership development pathways are often disjointed, and unclear.

A second report builds on these findings, with a progression framework for leader development (aligned where appropriate to NZQAF) and a best-practice leadership handbook are due out in 2024.
