    This article was prompted by the fact thatthe dividing lines between production and theservices in its support have crumbled, partly as aresult of functions that had been intrinsic to theprocesses being taken away from the factories.One of the reasons of this fact is that some segmentsof production which once were inside theplant are now externalised. This should lead torevision of the criteria for analysis and evaluationof productivity. And yet we are still locked in anapproach of neoclassical cast, in which growth isthe effect of improvement in the productivity ofthe productive factors and of their combinations,to which is then added a "spurious" residue so asto generate Total Factor Productivity. The articleseeks to define certain components of the latterwith the aim of singling out those elements thatcontribute most to productivity dynamics today.
