The role of managers in managing productivity has been emphasized by many researchers and practitioners. Yet, the task is not a simple one. There must be a concerted effort on the part of academia and practicing managers to develop a philosophy and strategy that would integrate formal productivity management with existing decision-making processes. This paper provides a some-what nontraditional approach to decision-making by bringing in the 'productivity factor' into all facets of strategic and tactical management processes. The concepts presented in this paper are universally applicable to all types of economic entities where human, material, capital, energy, and/or other resources are consumed to produce an output.
