Measuring Productivity:  Input vs. Output

Measuring Productivity: Input vs. Output

There are two extremes of evaluating productivity: Input vs. Output

  • Input: The salaryman works long hours and is mostly judged on input. The person is judged by his loyalty and commitment to the company.
  • Output: The person is entirely measured on output. His work doesn't track his hours. Repeatedly failing to meet deadlines would get him fired.

What matters most is often the hardest to track. We then measure things we don't care about with the hope that it will give some clarity. The solution:

Some consultants are paid when the company profits go up, but no money is owed when there is no profit.

A dimension in measuring productivity is looking at the big picture or fine-grained details.

Instead of relying on a fixed standard, regularly tweak and adapt what you measure.
