Talk Title: From high performance teams to a high performance economy; lessons from winning Olympic gold for building a better world

Abstract: If a society is to deliver high standards of living, it first needs to deliver high levels of innovation, productivity and performance. But how do we achieve high levels of innovation, productivity and performance throughout the economy? We will take a look at modern approaches to high performance as practiced by formula one, Olympic sports from cycling to skiing, and high performance engineering teams to find some answers, many of which originate in operations research, and consider how me might transform the UK economy and tackle some of the most important global challenges by applying these ideas more widely.
