Internal Factors - Factors affecting productivity improvement

1. Hard factors (such as products or technologies) which are not readily subject to alteration or amendment and will require long-term funding to ensure their modification, and 

2. Soft factors (e.g. labour, management methods, etc) which may be changed and certainly can be modified within a relatively short timescale.
