Abstract

Abstract Productivity is the key in almost all societies for enhancing the economic and social welfare. It is a complex concept that reflects more often value judgements held by various groups in a society. There exists confusion in relation to definition, circumscription and application. In this paper, an attempt has been made to explain some of the areas of consensus and conflict, and some suggestions are outlined how researchers in productivity might be pursued in the future.
