There are lots of blogs and magazine articles offering ‘productivity hacks’.
What impact do these have on the productivity of an organisation?
Well, most of them are aimed at personal productivity. They may help some people be marginally more efficient. But their impact on the organisation is almost non-existent since they don’t address organisational systems, processes and procedures
So, ignore them – unless you find them interesting on a personal level.
instead, take a systematic look t your organisation, what it does and how it does it. In there lies the ‘secret’ of improved productivity. Look for waste, opportunities for change, things that should be measured †o show what is happening.
Create your own, organisational ‘hacks’ – more effective and much more rewarding.
