International Society for
Efficiency and Productivity Analysis

The Society will promote and diffuse the study of theoretical and applied research addressing the measurement, analysis, and improvements in productivity and its components, particularly innovation and efficiency. It will be a Society that supports and fosters research that uses theory and empirical techniques to the measurement of productivity and sets forth implications for managerial strategies and public policy to enhance productivity. The Society’s broad scope spans economics, management sciences, operations research, and business and public administration. A partial list of topics includes productivity theory, organizational design, index number theory, and related foundations of productivity analysis, research on computational methods employed in productivity analysis and empirical research based on data at all levels of aggregation.
