McLaughlin and McLaughlin’s Project Professionals blog has a series of posts regarding labor/labour productivity. Over the last six months we have added to this popular series. The first summary was posted in June 2011. There was a reissue in October 2011, and again in November 2011. Readership has continued to increase. Consequently, we are reissuing this updated and expanded post as an overview of the labor/labour productivity series.
This Subject Series is being updated and new posts will be added over the coming weeks and months.
Productivity is a hot topic and has given rise to much discussion and debate in the project management world. Labor productivity can be a competitive advantage or a managerial challenge (actually, both and more). Therefore, we believe that there is high potential benefit in a review of McLaughlin & McLaughlin’s Productivity Series. Below, we have the titles and links to each post followed by a brief summary of the content. We intend to augment these posts with additional writings on the subject.
