For companies in high-wage countries high productivity is essential in order to survive in international competition. Digitalization opens up new possibilities to manage and increase productivity. Therefore, it is necessary to develop strategies for the productivity management of work systems, which are increasingly em-bossed by digitalization, and to consider the specific framework conditions and requirements of the companies. The paper presents a framework for a systemati-cal design of productivity strategies and explains conceptual potentials for the de-sign of strategies. The application of this framework is described by practice-oriented examples. Furthermore, its alignment with practical approaches is shown including an outlook on further requirements for successful implementation of strategies.
