Yield is metric that indicates how productive a Group or Individual is whilst at work, and is derived from the data collected in the daily Check-in screen.

In order to determine the Yield of a team or an individual we need to know the following pieces of information:

  • Available Time - Total time spent at work including overtime and excluding any leave

  • Output - the hours of Production Tasks completed

The calculation for Yield is: Output โž— Available Time

Using the screenshot above as an example, the hours of Production tasks completed were 4 hours and the Available Time for the day was 8 hours, so the calcuation is:

4 hours / 8 hours = 50% Yield

It's important to remember that two factors plays a large role in impacting Yield:

  • Friction - like Contribution, Yield will be inversely impacted by the amount of Friction encountered

  • Utilization - A low Utilization will have a considerable effect on the Yield. This is not a bad thing, it simply means that if a team or staff member spends a lot of their time on Supporting Tasks it will be difficult for them to achieve a high Yield.
