A more productive workforce will increase profits or enable services to be delivered with fewer resources. Statistical analysis at this level can be complex and can deter people from thinking about measuring productivity. This eBook shows that there are various levels of monitoring dependent on the job and context. It considers obstacles to managing productivity as well as measures at organisational and individual levels to increase productivity. The flavour of this eBook is to offer practical steps to achieve based on the authors’ experiences and knowledge of how organisations work.
