Is Canada our role model?

07 Jul 2017 10:57 AM | John Heap (Administrator)

Canada's labour productivity rose 1.4% in Q1 2017.


This is not a spectacular result but a solid performance.


Sometimes, slow and steady progress is preferable to high gain, fall-back performance.  (Think 'tortoise and hare'.)


This is exactly why continuous improvement programmes, resulting in a number of evolutionary performance gains, often beat the occasional revolutionary improvement brought about by say, a technology change.


Ideally, of course, we want both - but waiting for the revolution is a bad strategy.  We need to keep the pressure on organisations to make the many, small improvements.


Take Canada as your role model!
