Productivity can consist of durable and dynamic growth.
Challenging 21st century
A challenge formulated by Peter Drukker in 1998 inspires me: In the 20th century the productivity of manual workers was increased fifty-fold. The challenge in the 21st century is to increase knowledge worker productivity hopefully by the same percentage. Modern productivity is about creating value and durable profit especially in the service, creative and knowledge economy.
Annual high rates in sick leave, mental overload, work stress and burn-out can be related to changing work. Digitalization makes work more mental demanding. People have not developed responsibility in free and flexible work yet. Old habits and preferences in workplace design make concentration work stressful. Lets go for a forward get-away; upgrading professionalism in work.
My generation is the first that experiences effects of climate change. We are the last that can do something about it. For instance in daily work; in what we do and how we do it. Creating more value, working smarter and more durable. Learning in the workplace. Experiments and pilots. Trust. Knowledge productivity will demand radical change. Let leaders show by example. And go forward together. Cooperation with experts. Step by step.
Think, initiate & facilitate
