Success is about making the right decisions
Decisions count. And often they count for a lot. We need to make choices to keep things moving – and every choice we make can have consequences.
This is not only true in everyday life, it’s true in other situations as well – such as on the netball court. And that’s why, from 2012, Intergen is sponsoring the Intergen ANZ Championship Umpires.
Since 2008, the ANZ Championship has developed as one of the region's hottest sporting competitions. Featuring some of the world's best netballers in a feast of trans-Tasman rivalry, the ANZ Championship is a true showcase of speed, skill, athleticism and teamwork. From March to July, five Australian and five New Zealand teams battle it out over 14 home and away rounds, followed by the fiercely contested Finals Series.
Not only is netball a leading sport on both sides of the Tasman, but the fast-moving nature of the game – and the decisions that need to be made within it – have genuine parallels with business life and delivering business technology solutions.
As an organisation, Intergen understands what is required to perform at the highest of levels and therefore understands the effort needed – by everyone involved – to perform in the ANZ Championships. Our services and solutions provide organisations with the tools they need to make decisions and guide their daily activities – much like the work of the Intergen ANZ Championship Umpires who have to make split-second decisions to keep a netball game on track.
Wayne Forgesson, Director, Marketing at Intergen, says the company is proud to have made this commitment. “We recognise the effort required by both players and umpires to achieve the level required to perform in the ANZ Championships.
“Traditionally, the role of the umpire is much like an information technology solution within a business: essential to have, but often not recognised. We’re hoping to recognise the effort that goes into making the right decision, at the right time.”
"Additionally, netball – and the ANZ Championship specifically – reflect key aspects of Intergen’s corporate values. These include believing in what we say and do, feeling and living our passion, being a united team, and consistently performing at the top level. Not only is this a way of associating ourselves with a quality sporting competition, this also gives us an opportunity for our staff to enjoy netball and its competition aspects,” says Wayne. “We will be looking to embrace the championship internally for some good natured inter-office and inter-regional competition.”
