From the Paper:

"Productivity is defined in many ways. For instance, in Webster's dictionary productivity is defined as the quality or state of being productive. Although this meaning is sufficient for the general population, managers must have a much more in depth definition. Productivity is the output per hour of labor. It is the measure of goods and services employees produce per hour. A productive company is likely to have lower prices while making more profit and also making more goods."
