What are you mesuring?

France takes the summer off.  many factories close down for a month while workers holiday en masse.

Other European countries also take longer holidays than the UK.

Yet the productivity of these countries is higher.

Can anyone explain this - it is intuitive.

I have voiced my doubts about the way we measure national productivity before.

Each time I note something like this, I become more convinced that we need to take a fresh look at what we measure and compare.

Similarly, you should be careful what you measure and compare in your business.

if you measure the wrong things, you will make the wrong conclusions - and worn decisions.
