According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, productivity in the U.S. has grown at a mere 1.4% since 2005, leaving companies with the perplexing question of how to drive growth.

Some may have run across portfolios in schools or colleges where they’ve been utilized to grade students based on “artifacts” and accomplishments — whether related or tangential to their [...]
