Gauranga Chandra Mohanta, Kaluvan Paraman Thooyamani


Improving productivity of knowledge workers is one of the major challenges in today’s global environment. Through exploratory research, effort has been made to identify various tools & techniques those can improve productivity of knowledge workers. Through survey, effort has been made to find out perception of top level scientists on - usefulness of various tools & techniques; use of these tools & techniques and encouragement given in organisations for acquiring skill in these; trainings given for these tools & techniques and relative importance given by scientists for these tools & techniques.                                                                                    

Questionnaires have been designed and given to select scientists at top level to find out their perception on various aspects indicated above, followed by interview where responses were not adequate or further clarifications were required. Scientists have indicated that most of the identified tools & techniques can improve their productivity and these are used in organisations or scientists are encouraged to acquire skill in the same and majority of them are presently not trained in these tools & techniques. They also indicated the relative importance of various tools & techniques. The extensive use of these tools & techniques and provision of trainings to the scientists in these can improve their productivity.
