  • Closing the Individual Productivity Gap: Putting First Things First
    The key to increased earnings in today’s economy is productivity.  Productivity is a measure of an individual’s output, so what is the most cost-effective way to boost that individual’s output?  In the United States, workers are putting in more hours, but they are not deployed on the organization’s true priorities.  There is a knowledge-worker productivity gap where workers and managers need to be focused on truly important things in the organization, but they are not.  The way to increase productivity is to make sure that people are focused on work that matters.  With FranklinCovey training and tools, workers are more than twice as likely to focus on key priorities, and more than four times as likely to plan their workday.  FranklinCovey offers ways to measure levels of productivity in an organization, learn skills to manage priorities, and use planning tools that can schedule priorities and track progress.  Closing the productivity gap requires more than management exhortations or personal resolve—it takes a systematic solution.
