Fighting back effectively against labor productivity impacts will have a significant financial and customer satisfaction. There are four interrelated aspects to effectively fighting back.

Field Productivity: Impacts - Fighting Back.
  1. UNDERSTAND - Make learning part of your weekly habit and improve the power of observation on projects.  
  2. DOCUMENT - Use all tools available to you.  Focus on a level which other people can understand and learn from who are not intimately knowledgeable about the project.  
  3. QUANTIFY - If you can’t quantify pre and post impact production you won’t be able to communicate or resolve the impact effectively.
  4. COMMUNICATE - Learn to effectively make your case, to who and when to escalate for the best negotiating results.

Remember that guaranteed way to not lose a fight is to never get into the fight to begin with.  Deliberate practice of these skills over time will keep you out of the fight most of the time.
