Productivity is essentially the means to use the resources that you have to produce quality results. For upper management, streamlining processes and improving the level of productivity in the workplace is an ongoing concept. As more tools, resources, and ideas become available, the ability to achieve company goals in a reasonable amount of time becomes simpler. Improved productivity essentially saves organizations money while also allowing them to appeal to the demanding needs of their customer base.

Effective leadership is important for projects – no one disputes that and a quick online search will throw up plenty of survey results that position leadership as one of the key factors for project success.
However, leadership is hard work. It’s also very stressful. I hear a lot about ‘being a leader’ but I don’t think the discussion is wide enough. We also need to talk about how to cope with being a project leader because it’s difficult, especially if you don’t have a lot of experience at the top.
If you could change a few things on your project to vastly increase your chance of success, wouldn’t you do it?
Of course you would.
The problem is working out which factors to change to have the most impact.
Technology creates change everywhere it is implemented. Most of the time those changes are good, but sometimes they aren't so good. With the growth of technology people become more connected to things, rather than people and they get busier and find far more distractions.
