Measuring Per Person Productivity
How does one go about measuring "per person productivity"...?

Measuring per Person Productivity
Vishal Vilas Bhalerao, Member
I think it is very difficult to measure per person productivity in the world that we live in today where team effort is the primary model.
I think we should be focusing on the collective improvement in productivity and identifying the factors which slow down the team's productivity.
Measuring personal productivity serves no purpose because it will divert your attention from the systemic improvements which can be applied.

Low Productivity Mostly Likely not Caused by Low Individual Performance
Peter Jetter, Member
@Vishal Vilas Bhalerao: In knowledge work areas (intangible products) the root cause of low productivity is very seldom low individial performance.
Most likely there are systemic causes (ineffective processes, ineffective organisational structures, local optimization (unit versus company goals), etc.

Productivity Measurement of Individuals
Rahamathulla Mohamed Rawther, Member
We should be able to measure individual productivity. Employees' rewards are to be based on the productivity achieved by the individual.
The productivity mode of measurement may vary based on the organization's target, say revenue, net profit, customer satisfaction, CSR etc.
