The New Productivity Mandate

Based on decades of productivity research, Vitalyst has categorized the four value drivers of enterprise productivity and created the Vitalyst Productivity Multiplier Model™ (VPMM™). It identifies and measures four key value drivers of productivity–from individual awareness and usage to enterprise-wide technology innovation.


Workers only use a small fraction of the technology available to them, relying on basic-level approaches that fail to keep pace with new solutions and efficiencies. Even the smallest efforts to track, monitor and improve usage delivers powerful increases in worker and enterprise productivity


Problems or frustrations with applications create productivity gaps, and worse, create disruptions and aversion to adoption of new approaches. By addressing and resolving problems in the moment in a way that’s customized to personal learning styles, disruption is minimized, efficiency is increased and worker engagement is maximized.


Most businesses fail to recognize that, as computing power increases, employee skills must be continuously developed. Companies will often introduce a one-time technology or application rollout without sufficient training back-ups or skill-building seminars. By creating a systematized skill-building approach that balances worker proficiency with business goals, end-user productivity keeps pace with technology advancements.


Only when worker usage and proficiency meet key thresholds can IT leaders achieve the next level of technology innovation. The cycles of technology innovation and adoption have accelerated, putting more pressure on companies to do more with less, and to do it faster. A clarified view of individual and enterprise productivity creates a more effective framework for driving business forward.
