For a business to be successful, it needs “all hands on deck.” How would the All Whites go if players kept “taking smoko” – literally or just mentally? In business, there is a virtual scoreboard – our actual results are vying with what’s planned in every moment. Our score is going up or down as the minutes tick to month end.
Our productivity ranking as a nation is “D”. We rank 22nd out of 30 OECD countries.
(www.nzinstitute.org.) Below-par productivity hits business owners where it hurts most – in their back pocket. In a country where 87% of our organisations are 5 employees or less, we should be near the TOP not bottom of OECD countries.
