School of Management



The CANZ project has sustained an active programme of presenting its work for review and evaluation. We have submitted our work for peer review by leading regional and international conferences and journals. Interest in the work has been strong with full symposia being devoted to the project at the Academy of Management Conference in Toronto in 2000, and at the Australia New Zealand Academy of Management Conferences in 2000 and 2001.

We have presented our ideas to the community of Tmanagement practice in New Zealand in an extensive series of seminars held the length of the country. The support of the New Zealand Institute of Management in organising several of these seminars is greatly appreciated.

A book-length report of our findings was published by Auckland University Press in June 2001. Titled World Famous in New Zealand, the book was launched by the Prime Minister who described it as a "Bible" for New Zealand entrepreneurs. World Famous even made the best seller lists. A full list of publications is available on request.

Several of the company histories written as part of the project’s research have been released for publication. They may be downloaded as pdf files and reproduced with acknowledgement and without fee.
