Why is UK productivity lower than in many other countries?

Evan Davis begins a new series of The Bottom Line by looking at the productivity problem. The programme asks what productivity really means and how different sectors go about measuring it.

Evan hears from three chief executives in three different sectors: manufacturing; advertising and health. How can productivity be measured and improved in these diverse sectors? How, for example, should the productivity of a doctor or nurse be measured?

Guests:
Dame Julie Moore, Chief Executive of University Hospitals Birmingham
Brian Holliday Managing Director, Managing Director for Siemens Digital Factory UK
James Murphy, Founder and Chief Executive of Adam and Eve DDB Advertising

Producer: Jim Frank.
