The global economy is drifting into a productivity crisis, and if current productivity trends continue, competitiveness and profitability may suffer. Our latest research explores the short-, medium-, and long-term impact of slowing productivity on global competitiveness and highlights productivity growth as a vital component for sustaining business profitability. We will also discuss our findings with business practitioners on what key principles businesses can employ to boost productivity within their company. How do business leaders move their companies to the frontier of productivity performance and beyond? What are challenges and opportunities? 

All registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the report. For more resources on this topic, please visit:
