Question: Do you rely on data to determine how your project is progressing? Here are 4 reasons decision makers find themselves flying blind, and 4 ways to eliminate the danger:
- Data silos: When your data is stored in multiple spread sheets, systems and applications, it’s difficult to see the big picture, and more importantly to understand trends. By accessing all your data in the right context, you eliminate unnecessary guesswork, increase productivity and improve the decision-making process.
- Access to timely data: Waiting for daily/weekly/monthly reports, results in missed opportunities. These opportunities aren’t evident until after the reports are delivered, by this time the window of opportunity has closed and opportunity lost.
- Ensure a single point of truth: Draw data directly from the source, eliminate internal debate over data integrity and spend more time completing required tasks.
- Increase transparency of data: By establishing good processes to share accurate and timely data, you increase efficiency and improve the decision-making process by accessing legitimate data.
