Abstract

Since the 1973 oil embargo and energy crisis in the United States, the downtrend of the U. S. economy is demonstrated by high unemployment rate, high inflation rate, increased foreign competition and numerous other indicators. These indicators have alerted many U. S. companies who have a growing concern in knowing how to measure and evaluate their performance. In the recent years, there has been a growing number of research papers dedicated to address the issue of productivity measurement. The main focus of this paper is to bring together the central focus on total productivity concepts of measuring productivity at the company/organization level.
