Perfecting Productivity, Part One: Prescribing Productivity

Perfecting Productivity, Part One: Prescribing Productivity

Productivity has been, is now, and likely will forever be heralded as one of the preeminent goals for any business. As such, it makes sense to understand as much as we can about it. To do so, we’ll be examining a different aspect of productivity for the next few weeks.

First up: what is productivity, in the first place?

Productivity is Nothing More than a Metric

Or, if you’d rather think about it differently, productivity is just an equation that helps you maximize your results, whatever it is you happen to be engaged in doing. This equation is as follows:

Productivity = Output/Input

It’s as simple as that—but despite this apparent simplicity, there are still many, many points of confusion that often trip up people. 

People Tend to Overcomplicate Productivity

Many people see maximizing their input—the number of tasks they complete, for instance—or simply always having something to work on as the way to help ensure they are being productive. These approaches, however, cut out the real crux of the matter…how much value your efforts actually bring.

This means that there are various data points that are necessary to measure different aspects of productivity, but that’s something we’ll cover next time.

Productivity is one of many business aspects that should be prioritized and considered to really ensure that your operations are as successful as they have the potential to be. That’s something that we can assist your business with, through the various IT services and solutions that we can provide and manage on your behalf.
