“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there” — Lewis Carroll.
At Kaizen Solutions we believe in NOW – WHERE – HOW and thus not only do you know where you are going, but you have to know where you are starting “NOW”.
Once you have determined the NOW and decided on the WHERE, you need to determine the HOW. Again information is need to help understand where the organization excels so as to achieve the WHERE using its competitive advantage.
Once you have decided on the HOW, you need to Monitor, Analyze and Manage your way to the WHERE. This is done as:
- Monitor critical business processes and activities using metrics that trigger alerts when potential problems arise.
- Analyze the root cause of problems by exploring problems from multiple perspectives and various levels of detail.
- Manage people and processes to improve decisions, optimize performance and steer the organization to the WHERE.
Dashboards provide companies with an “organizational magnifying glass” to focus the work of employees so that everyone is going towards the same WHERE and that the HOW is working. The Dashboard communicates the organization’s strategic objectives and enables management to measure, monitor, and manage the key activities and processes need to achieve the objectives.
Kaizen develops and maintains dashboards for client to help them execute their strategy to their WHERE successfully. Talk to us about how we can help you. Examples of Dashboards are shown below and especially the Financial Physical Exam which helps understand the NOW and HOW of the organization.
