Productivity Driven Success

The Hidden Secrets of Organizational Efficency

Two Day Workshop

Based on the book "Productivity Driven Success", productivity improvement should never be your final goal. It should simply be a conduit to free up the time, money and resources needed to drive organizational success.
This workshop widens your perspective on productivity enhancement and outlines a strategy to assure your efforts are aligned with corporate goals, holistic in nature, systematic in implementation, and measurable. It goes on to describe the six "Productivity Enables" that make improvement possible, "Productivity Amplifiers" designed to maximize organizational efficiency, and the process that makes it happen.
