  • image_1489638144-82b5c38223If you are working on a production line or plucking tea, apart from being the lowest paid in the organisation, your productivity is measured and analysed by the minute. Also, unlike in management, you cannot take credit for another person’s production output!
  • If you are a so-called management resource, you are mostly measured by the end result (KPIs) or the activities carried out (deliverables). As long as the business makes money and you meet your KPIs or deliverables, all stakeholders are happy (except for victims of organisational politics!)
  • Rarely is management productivity measured i.e. could you have met the KPIs/deliverables in much less time? How does senior management (the highest paid resource) account for its time?
