Getting More From The Same

Bookmark and Share

Last month I was invited to join a panel of speakers at the launch of a new report into productivity. The report by the Management Consultants Association and sponsored by Trinity Horne, makes very interesting reading. One of the facts that I found quite amazing was that only around 30% of organizations expected to increase productivity by 30% or more over the next 3 years, this seems a very small percentage in my opinion, especially when one asks the same question of others in different markets.

I am sure that it will be of no surprise to those of us who promote BPM as a management philosophy to find that 40% of respondents suggest a failure to engage and motivate employees as the main reason for a lack of productivity improvements. While another 20% are apparently satisfied with their current levels of productivity, I wonder whether given the current climate those companies still feel the same. Of course the rest of is I am sure would love to know who they are in order to go compete in that space.

Trinity Horne are a specialist consulting firm headquartered in Ireland with offices in the UK and India, they have a pretty innovative approach to helping firms improve the productivity of the staff and management. CEO Brendan Cahill working with a leading Business School has created a unique productivity index that compares the relative performance of leading organizations' around the globe.

You can get a copy of the report "Getting More From The Same" from the following link.
