I noticed where l `m working at the moment we are told to maximize the productivity of the machines but at the same time being told to work at the slowest speed of the machines in other words below half the capacity of the machines.

This can only be achieved through employee motivation, as the moral of the workers improves also efficiency of the workers improves.

As entrepreneurs both aspiring entrepreneurs and startups SMEs before we go any further into business let as equip ourselves with the right skills so that we can run business properly.
