I recently got my productivity Certificate by Acies Innovations. Thank you for the generous invitation from Rajesh Dhillon, Dr. Randhir Pushpa and Dr Bebeka Gjoksi Cosandey The program is amazing and I would say the best experience of what blended learning really is.
What is productivity?
According to Wikepedia productivity is the efficiency of production of goods or services expressed by some measure. Measurements of productivity are often expressed as a ratio of an aggregate output to a single input or an aggregate input used in a production process, i.e. output per unit of input, typically over a specific period of time. The most common example is the (aggregate) labour productivity measure, one example of which is GDP per worker. There are many different definitions of productivity (including those that are not defined as ratios of output to input) and the choice among them depends on the purpose of the productivity measurement and/or data availability. The key source of difference between various productivity measures is also usually related (directly or indirectly) to how the outputs and the inputs are aggregated to obtain such a ratio-type measure of productivity.
Why is productivity important?
Productivity is a crucial factor in the production performance of firms and nations. Increasing national productivity can raise living standards because more real income improves people's ability to purchase goods and services, enjoy leisure, improve housing and education and contribute to social and environmental programs. Productivity growth can also help businesses to be more profitable.
My key learnings from the live sessions, resources, videos and self-paced microlearning: 1. Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence intelligent planning and focuse deffort - Paul J. Meyer 2. Productivity growth is important because it gives us an opportunity to create more from less, effective utilization of resources, reduced cost and therefore higher profitability 3. We have learned some models , frameworks, tips, templates, technology and techniques on how to improve productivity - Nonaka's SECI Model, knowledge management , tools in learning and development, time boxing, eat the frog first, Eisen Hower matrix and more 4. Interesting to know for the first time about cynefin (kuf-nev-in) framework by Dave Snowden which signifies the multiple, intertwined factors in our environment and our experiences that influence us (how to think, interpret and act) 5. Finally and I believe the most important part of the learning is life efficiency. Being able to have balance, satisfying not only our body but also our mind and having fun with what we do. In several conversations, productivity has been both a challenge and an opportunity for most especially in the workplace. So, I am curious to know, what is most challenging for you when it comes to productivity?
