Britain’s productivity crisis in eight charts
FT series: Slowdown in output per hour worked has many facets
Britain’s productivity crisis should be keeping the country’s politicians and civil servants awake at night. This is because the UK has experienced a slump in productivity growth since the financial crisis that shows no sign of coming to an end. The slowdown has been more acute than any other western country. It matters because achieving higher growth in productivity — or output per hour worked — is the way nations become richer, living standards rise and governments have the resources to improve public services or cut taxes. The following seven charts and a map outline the different facets to the productivity crisis.

The deconstruction of the traditional workplace hierarchy, the abandonment of performance appraisal, the impact of Millenials, all point to a substantial revival of teams and teamwork for the first time in more than 20 years. Leading companies are pushing towards a team-centric model but, for many others, team development remains ad hoc as they fail to recognise that teams hold the answers to increased effectiveness. Delivering improved team effectiveness across an organization does not have to be time-consuming.
The Team Diagnostic Profiler (TDP) is a methodology and process that is easy to use, self-administering and can deliver 10 to 20% improvement in team effectiveness when deployed in a corporate team strategy. This book is based on the TDP methodology and the years of research completed by the author.
