Information technology professionals around the world have responded to the IT management survey by answering a detailed time-in-motion questionnaire. Thanks to the participation of more than 40,000 respondents results can be relied upon to reflect an even distributed result. Overall findings are summarized in the above graph.
This year the level of accidental productivity is on the rise with a full 1.5% increase on last year. Correspondingly the level of staff turn-over is predicted by many respondents to decrease proportionally. Of course this is bad news for many organisations attempting to keep focus on immediate short term gain and minimization of staff wages by ensuring no long term employees. Thankfully these organisations can rejoice as the productivity gains have been well and truly offset by the large increases in the areas of incompetence and throwing people under the bus.
