Digital Technology for Productivity
Do you ever wonder how much more productive you would be if you were able to use digital technology appropriately? And what exactly does that look like? On occasion I have tried to use digital technology to help with a new project or approach only to find my productivity went out the window. After that it’s hard to convince anyone they should adopt something new to get more productive.
At some point though technology becomes so common place that you have to wonder at those that don’t adopt it. We have a restaurant in town that has a few outlets. Their food is good and they do good business but at all the locations the servers still write-up the bills by hand on sticky notes. The line up at the till is often long as the servers add up the hand written notes on a calculator and heaven help the patron if they need a real receipt. Now that is one of the best examples that I can think of for using technology to be more productive.
In my last post I talked about having the proper tools but sometimes that may not be enough. The tools alone won’t do it; you need to know how to use the tools. Here’s the conundrum – who’s got time for that? In the next few posts I plan on exploring productivity through the lens of digital technology and how you make that work. Here is hoping it may be easier than I think.
Productivity is a measure of how much – work, time, effort, money, or energy – you have to put into something to get the desired outcome. For more tips and tools on how to get more productive please visit Blue Collar Consulting Inc. at http://www.bluecollarconsulting.ca/.
