Abstract or Summary
  • The slow productivity growth of American organizations in comparison to that of other industrialized nations is, nowadays, causing great national concern. The time has come when traditional industrial practices must give way to innovative procedures more compatible with current business-world conditions. Among others, current managerial practices seem to need urgent redefinitions of purpose and methodology. Following the path started by the PROD-5 productivity diagnostic, an audit of general work force practices implemented at the Oregon Productivity Center, this thesis deals with the development and implementation of PROD-5m, a customized audit of managerial practices. The audit attempts to address the most significant issues facing today's managers. Furthermore, results obtained from the analysis of the audit include tangible suggestions for the implementation of productivity improvement programs as well as recognition for good performance. Audit testing was performed with three organizations of dissimilar backgrounds: Good Samaritan Hospital (health care), Pacific Power and Light Company (utility), and Electro Scientific Industries (hi-tech). The positive feedback received from end users seems to confirm the usefulness of PROD-5m. The diagnostic was able to identify various managerial concerns particular to each organization, as well as suggesting managerial issues common to the industry at large.
