From the Paper:

"Within the context of business productivity is defined as a measure of worker efficiency, such as the number of units produced per hour ("productivity", n.d.). As it pertains to economics the definition of productivity is broader and encompasses the making of goods and services to create wealth ("productivity", n.d.) Within the context of property management, productivity is associated with the amount of clientele that can be serviced within a designated amount of time. Productivity in this industry can also be measured by the ability to maintain many properties over a substantial period of time."
