↑ Return to Productivity

What scope to improve?

  • In G7 nations, the evidence suggests there are many more organisations performing below rather than above the median:

    • 80% never seek to improve by much at all

    • Most of the other 20% only target the next performance level up and, once that is achieved, elect to stick

  • Most G7 organisations, across both public and private sectors, could improve their productivity levels by at least 20%, many by much more – yet most seek paltry 1% or 2% improvements at best, and their managers are happy if they achieve them

  • A 20% productivity improvement across all sectors could translate into a saving of at least 20% of a nation’s GDP

  • For the UK alone, this would translate into an annual saving of at least £300 billion each and every year
