In 2003 the New Zealand Institute of Management developed a Management Capability Index.  In management and leadership research terms, it was a world first. The survey, on which the index is based, is now conducted in a number of countries including India, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia, and was made possible due to membership in the Asian Association of Management Organizations (AAMO). The Institute of Management of Sri Lanka (IMSL) is the National Management Organization (NMO) representing Sri Lanka in the AAMO.  
Management capability is arguably the single most important success factor in building business capability.  This understanding in no small measure accounts for the fact that a steadily increasing number of countries are using the index to measure organisational performance and simultaneously keep individual enterprises focused on practices that enhance capability.
