A standards-based approach to productivity can help solve existing problems

In 2019, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) downgraded global growth to 3 percent, its lowest level since 2008-9. Amidst escalating trade tensions, ongoing political uncertainty and financial vulnerability, the pace of global economic activity continues to weaken, contributing to steep declines in business and consumer confidence. 

Given today’s volatile market, success hinges on optimizing organizational performance across all areas. To avoid stagnation and overcome current challenges to business growth, leaders must prioritize productivity. By cultivating a productivity mindset and ethos, corporations of all sizes can eliminate obstacles, motivate staff and maximize output, driving long-term sustainable growth – now and in the future.
