Productivity + Satisfaction = Results

Wednesday, July 22, 2009 by Slaughter Development

Slaughter Development’s belief in methodology engineering is based around a simple formula: productivity + satisfaction = results. Review the slides from a recent presentation on this topic at the Indiana Business Fair.

The talk reminds us that a key advantage in business is speed. Anytime we can get a product to the customer faster, provide services more quickly or deliver information sooner, we pull ahead of the competition.

If speed is the objective, the approach must balance the rate of progress against the level of excellence. Keeping quality and quantity at the forefront maximizes overall productivity. But then again, what good is it to complete tasks and please clients if we ourselves are frustrated, tired and overworked? Accomplishment without a sense of personal satisfaction is hollow at best.

Success arises not just from work, but from a combination of reactive and proactive happiness. The choice to pursue success requires motivation. And in turn, why we choose to act may be driven by internal or external forces. For more information on how these three factors come together, review the slides (direct link):
