Covid pandemic paradox!!

Why is it that productivity is up…..according to recent research. However innovation is down!!

Several possible solutions & insights are suggested in the Wharton blog article shown here: https://whr.tn/3f68ySe

Companies feared that work from home would (WFH)  impair productivity.  Recent research summarized on the Knowledge@Wharton blog indicates that WFH in a number of ways has enhanced productivity due to fewer distractions from working at home and time not lost in commuting.  But this productivity has come at a cost in innovation, which in turn is often the cause of future productivity gains!

The findings suggest that collaberation, group level interaction, and brainstorming is improved in the face to face work settings vs the virtual world.

Hope you find the insights helpful.
