Leader, managers and team leaders in a given organization are concerned with maximizing productivity through process-oriented observations and improvements.
For both public and private sector organizations, productivity growth is important because providing more goods and services to consumers translates to higher profits and financial stability. As productivity increases, an organization can turn resources into revenues, paying stakeholders and retaining cash flows for future growth and expansion. Productivity leads to competitiveness and potentially competitive advantages. Countries such as Jamaica are in need of increased productivity in order to achieve its growth target.
