Productivity Management Services is a consultancy helping British businesses with compliance and certification. We are leaders in implementing and maintaining ISO management systems for quality, safety and environment. We also undertake design for productivity.
Getting more, from less. This is the prime objective of productivity improvement. How well it is achieved determines the profitability, and ultimately the survival, of every business operating in a competitive economy. Productivity improvement is challenging work. It demands both generalist and specialist expertise. It requires independent and innovative approaches to the design of organisations, processes and products.
It requires careful and methodical optimisation of that which is already in place. Our business offers a comprehensive range of expertise to support the productivity improvement effort. It provides productivity analysts and technical specialists at competitive prices; people with the knowledge, independence, clarity and commitment needed to manage productivity improvement.
Productivity Management Services was formed in 2005 and is a division of the Australian Productivity Council. Since our formation we have grown our client base, and we are now one of Britain's best known service providers in the fields of quality, safety and environmental systems management.
Our group was founded in 1969 and has completed thousands of productivity improvement projects. These have analysed and measured productivity, introduced new management techniques, trained employees, designed and installed new production facilities, engineered new products, implemented and maintained efficient quality, safety and environmental systems. These projects have been completed in businesses of every size, type and industry sector.
The Australian Productivity Council is descended from the Productivity Groups movement, a membership-based business self-help organisation established in 1957. In 1969, the Productivity Promotion Council of Australia (PPCA) was established as a not-for-profit company to coordinate Productivity Group activities on a national basis and to conduct industry productivity promotion, training, research, publishing and consulting projects. The PPCA was funded by a combination of Commonwealth government grants, membership subscriptions and fees for the services it offered. In 1985 the PPCA was re-named the Australian Productivity Council (APC) and, following a period of commercialisation, fully privatised in 1987.
