Productivity will always be the primary goal for businesses, right alongside profits, although one thing does in fact lead to another in this case. To ensure your company runs efficiently, you need to understand just how productivity works and its relationship with what you put into your business. We’ll be using the next couple of weeks to take a closer look at the relationship between your business and its productivity.
First, let’s look at what productivity is, in its simplest and purest form.
All things considered, productivity will boil down to a number, which is the result of a simple equation. Here is the equation:
Productivity = Output / Input
Really, it’s quite simple. Your output is determined by how much work you put in. This might seem obvious, but there are plenty of places where people get stuck, preventing them from maximizing productivity.
Most people try to maximize their input, hoping that this will increase the amount of productivity one can achieve through completing various tasks. However, when you put in so much and get little in return, you have to start looking at things as a value proposition. We’ll cover other metrics that can be used to analyze various aspects of productivity, but suffice it to say for now that one isn’t going to cover all of them.
Productivity is something that businesses need to prioritize, as without adequate productivity, your organization’s potential will be squandered.
