Most organizations do not have a performance management system in place that measures productivity across the production, delivery and promotion of services, and identify corrective actions that are required. As a result, firms cannot identify and improve consistently limiting factors such as unproductive processes, communication break-downs, unmotivated and ill-prepared staff.

In order to improve productivity, firms must develop an innovative approach to performance management which helps companies operationalize their strategic priorities.

This is not easy and hence innovation is required to deal with various organizational constraints, including focusing their staff on managing efficiently the customer contact points, make company's management more productive by providing informational and structure around the key operating areas (production, delivery and promotion), and also, procure data to a single database from where to calculate indicators and produce reports.

The Strategies for Improving Productivity programme, is approved as a 'Vital Importance Programme' by the Board of Centre for Public Service Productivity and Development (CPSPD)  and organizations participating with their employees, who satisfy the CPSPD's criteria, are entitleod to a full subsidy, thus, may attend this programme without any cost.

This programme includes 14 hours in-class training and a half-day company consultation.
