Umair Haque, the author of Betterness: Economics for Humans and the director of Havas Media Labs, says that productivity is often mislabeled as making stuff cheaper. In reality, Umair correctly states that productivity should be more about “making stuff better.”

To add more, Aytekin Tank, the Entrepreneur Leadership Network VIP at, says the following in his article, “Why Founders Should Focus on Productivity Instead of Efficiency: Productivity is a way to accomplish more of what matters in your business”:

“While efficiency means doing more with less, productivity is about doing more with the same … and it’s a pursuit grounded in quality. After all, who cares whether you cross four extra tasks off your to-do list, if those activities don’t move the needle for your business? An effective morning routine or work schedule should help you to do more of what really matters. That’s why I believe founders and CEOs should focus on productivity, not efficiency.”
