What is Productivity Training?

Productivity training is about how to increase efficiency by eliminating “busy work”.

“Busy work” is short-range and low value: It consumes a lot of time and effort, but it is relatively non-productive.

“Productive work” is the opposite, it is long-range, high-value work that adds more value and prevents problems.

The main goal of this training is to avoid getting caught up in lower-value, short range "busy work" and instead to focus 80% of our time on higher-value, long range “productive work”.

To achieve this, we work on three levels: ourselves, other people, and work systems. We focus on improving our own habits, getting the best performance from others, and enhancing our work systems to become overall more productive.

On this training, people learn to eliminate common errors and replace them with good habits.

By the end of the training, you will have the knowledge and skills needed to boost productivity.
