Peter Drucker, the recognized management guru of the 21st century, talked about Knowledge Workers in his final work. Specifically he addressed the requirements for increasing productivity among knowledge workers; which ultimately is EACâs goal - increasing productivity within product development.
To increase product development productivity there needs to be a focus on quality of output. Drucker contends that the quality of output is as important, and perhaps more important, than the quantity of output. If you find a mismatch between informational needs of somebody doing work and the information that arrives with them, then you have a problem. If thatâs the case then the thing to do is take this problem, raise a flag, and move into the Continuous Improvement subsystem, which we will discuss separately. It is a critically important one of the three subsystems of The Product Development Operating System.
