Britain's Productivity Crisis Solved in Eight Hours

The Financial Times reports that Britain's productivity crisis is worsening. They report, "The UK has experienced a slump in productivity growth.... that shows no sign of coming to an end".

In order to solve a problem, one must first find its causes. The causes are many, but they can all be subsumed under three major headings: individual, organisational, systemic.

These three levels need to be tackled separately and together. We need to work to improve the productivity of the individual worker, the individual organisation, and the system of organisations that comprise the nation.

Therefore, we need action to improve the productivity of:

  1. Individual workers, by improving the work ethic and individual professional skills and knowledge.
  2. Company policy and culture, by improving the internal organisation, work ethic, skills and knowledge.
  3. Government policy and infrastructure, by improving education, transport links, laws and government policies that affect our ability to create wealth.

Here at Corporate Coach Training we are doing our best to help the situation, by presenting targeted training, intended to improve the productivity of the individual worker and the company.

We assume that it is the productivity of the individual worker, which is the base of the productivity pyramid. The starting point to solving the productivity puzzle is "the individual worker", because obviously "organisational action" is the sum of all the individual actions.

If we could make every individual worker more organised, efficient and productive, then the organisation would also become more productive. And if every organisation became more productive, then the system (the nation) as a whole, would be more productive.

We don't need to wait for the Government to act to improve education, transport links, laws and policies. Why not get on with the job and improve the situation from your side, by improving individual and organisational productivity?

The principles of productive effort are not new. They are simply an application of common sense disciplines and strategies, together with the rejection of a few bad habits.

If you were to drop your bad habits and replace them with new disciplines, then your individual productivity would take a step forward.

If everyone in your organisation dropped their bad habits and replaced them with disciplines, then the whole organisation would take a productive leap forward.

And if every organisation in the nation were to drop their bad practices and replace them with common sense disciplines, making productivity their main aim, then the whole nation would experience a giant leap forward.
