Hours Worked Is NOT a Productivity Measure

A recent post by Mike Masnick at TechDirt, reminds us the the bizarre notion of measuring productivity based on hours worked is not limited to the professional firm. He cites a New York Times article as further evidence of this madness and to his credit clearly dismisses the practice as silly. Good for him!

In an example worthy of a VeraSage imprimatur, he writes about the logical extension of the hours fallacy suggesting that companies calculate the lost cost due to employees sleeping eight hours a day.
