What is HyperProductivity?

HyperProductivity refers to an aspirational state in the workplace in which enterprises have automated as many processes as possible and integrated technologies into one cohesive workflow, enabling every employee to use any application with ease. 

A HyperProductive enterprise streamlines non-essential tasks, significantly boosting productivity while allowing employees to focus on impactful work. This requires providing employees with the technology, including artificial intelligence (AI), and support to operate their digital tools faster and more effectively while executing workflows. 

And with 80% of executives saying they believe automation can be applied to any business decision, according to a recent Gartner study, many enterprises appear on their way to reaching a state of HyperProductivity. 

Automation can be applied to any business decision

HyperProductivity extends beyond individual or team success, challenging organizations to replicate and scale these successes organization-wide. It involves expanding digital adoption best practices throughout the entire enterprise, resulting in a more holistic and impactful transformation.

Enterprises that achieve HyperProductivity demonstrate higher application utilization rates and significant time savings for employees across all levels. 

Ultimately, HyperProductivity represents a new standard of work that enables companies to maintain a competitive edge and navigate uncertain economic climates while maximizing return on digital investments.

What does a HyperProductive enterprise look like? A conceptual case study.


Apex Inc. is a leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial equipment with more than 50,000 employees operating in 29 countries.


On January 1, 2023, the German Supply Chain Act (GSCA) came into effect to enhance ESG protections in corporate supply chains. Compliance involves implementing preventive measures within supply chains, submitting annual due diligence reports, and establishing risk mitigation systems. Non-compliance can lead to an €800,000 fine and a three-year exclusion from public contracts. 


Apex invested in new technology capabilities to ensure employee adherence to restricted party screening, sourcing, and supplier-import-export management procedures. Apex realized they would not achieve compliance in time or scope using traditional methods; to expedite the process and ensure governance at scale, they implemented an AI-enabled DAP to:

  • Provide a unified conversational interface to act and automate workflows.
  • Identify and mitigate digital friction across workflows without increasing support tickets.
  • Utilize real-time guidance and support to accelerate process completion in the flow of work.


  • 1.5m productivity hours saved through low-code process implementation, task automation and improved data validation.
  • 600% increase in EU-customer retention rates achieved through enhanced competitive advantage.
  • €1.1 billion in net-new EU public sector contracts.

*This is a composite hypothetical case study.

HyperProductivity vs Hyper Automation

HyperProductivity and hyper-automation are both concepts aimed at enhancing efficiency and effectiveness within organizations. While there are distinctions between the two concepts, they are ultimately complementary and are both critical for meeting enterprise goals. 

Automation is a key component of achieving HyperProductivity. For example, Gartner predicts that 70% of organizations will use structured automation for flexibility and efficiency by 2025, which is a huge jump from previous figures of 20% in 2021.

However, the two concepts aren’t quite the same. Let’s compare the two:

HyperProductivity Hyper Automation
Definition Achieving increased output by automating business processes into one cohesive workflow.  Automating tasks and workflows using advanced technologies
Key components Process optimization, cultural shifts, technology adoption, AI fueled task automation. Robotic process automation, AI, machine learning, integration
Objectives Maximize output, accelerate time-to-market, drive growth Increase operational efficiency, reduce manual effort
Example activities Implementing agile methodologies, investing in employee training Deploying RPA bots, using AI-powered chatbots, integrating systems
Focus Efficiency, resource utilization Automation, scalability, error reduction

While HyperProductivity focuses on maximizing output and efficiency through process optimization, cultural shifts, and resource utilization, hyper-automation centers on leveraging advanced technologies to automate tasks, processes, and workflows to achieve operational excellence and scalability. 

Both concepts are essential for organizations looking to stay competitive and adapt to the demands of the digital age.
