What is Productivity?
John Spacey, updated on January 15, 2023
Productivity is the amount you produce in a given unit of time such as an hour or a day. This can be measured for an individual, an organization or an entire economy. Factors that contribute to productivity include know-how, motivation, technology, equipment and processes. It is often difficult to measure productivity as processes such as strategic thinking may not produce measurable results in the short term but can be productive in the long term. Other factors that are inherently destructive in the long term may be incorrectly counted as productive in the short term.
