“Why think about pro­duc­tiv­i­ty sys­tems at all? Why try to think about ways we can be more pro­duc­tive? Doesn’t that imply we’re not doing enough, or that we’re wast­ing time?

Most peo­ple I know are pret­ty busy, and in fact find them­selves bur­dened more and more each year by ever-expanding, often non­sen­si­cal expec­ta­tions that have lit­tle to do with the core aca­d­e­m­ic mis­sions of teach­ing and research, or with gov­er­nance. More­over, decades of the aggres­sive defund­ing of pub­lic high­er edu­ca­tion has usu­al­ly meant that this expand­ing amount of work has been done by fewer resources and by fewer peo­ple.”
