Abstract:

Until recently, productivity in the construction industry has been on the decline during the past decade. There are numerous impediments to productivity, with these cases being interrelated and resulting in a ripple effect on the total productivity. Since the causes of productivity impediments are so numerous and diverse, this report will first provide a general overview of some of the broad categories of productivity impediments, along with some very general suggestions for correcting these impediments. The report will then focus on those areas which the writer feels have the biggest impact on productivity employee motivation, employee management, managing productivity by objectives, measuring productivity and finally discrimination in MBO systems.
