First, we focus on building a baseline framework to measure business effectiveness. This entails converting
historical information into a framework to measure value creation. The baseline framework models how data,
assets and resources align to maximize business performance. There is an optimum framework for every business.
Your goal is to develop a modern framework to power your business. This is necessary if you want to
use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning to enrich your data and information. You will use this
framework to benchmark, manage and evolve operational performance.
Data assets must be managed to run a business. Your best business defense against risk is to improve how you
manage your information. This is why you need to modernize your data architecture. Businesses function based
on how they develop and deliver products and services to serve markets. Structure, process, capabilities and
decision-making of every business are different. There are no “one-size-fits-all” solutions. Your data
framework sets up the measures you will use to assess business potential. Your mission is to optimize operational
performance. This is possible when you can improve knowledge worker productivity and lower costs as you optimize
use of capital and resources. Opportunity to realize your business potential depends on how you use insight to
develop and implement step-change strategies, solution roadmaps and action plans to modernize operations.
Activity to Value Insight
Activity-based insight will help you to align capabilities, practices and resources to optimize value creation.
Your objective is to optimize use of resources and efforts to increase returns for your business. Insight about
how day-to-day work activities impact value creation is vital. Gaining new perspective about your effectiveness
will help you focus on making the best investments. Business transformation is an ongoing process. Decision-making
slows down and is often paralyzed when overwhelming amounts of information are mismanaged. Activity to value
insight will help you improve business agility and grow returns on investments. Avoiding pitfalls that hinder
work and degrade value creation is critical. This is why you need activity-based insight. Opportunity to know
what you need to do depends on how use measure performance and costs to align resources and efforts.
Most businesses are reactive. Adverse situations, e.g., getting hacked and losing data, secrets and IP can be
devastating. Reactionary management is expensive. A weak response to a bad situation can put you out of business.
Your objective is to avoid adverse situations by taking the right steps to reduce risk. This is possible when
you build an anticipatory business culture. When you anticipate change you create opportunity to get in front
of change that can blindside your business. You want to preempt situations that are adverse to your business.
Predictive data can give you the edge you need to create a sizeable advantage. To understand your problems,
take a deeper look at your current situation. Look at what you are doing today versus what you can do to improve
your position. Predictive data can help you model hypothetical situations to evaluate risks and opportunities.
Taking steps today to mitigate risk is possible when you know what to do to improve positioning.
Step Change Strategy
Step Change is the process and actions you take to leap into the future. Step change involves getting people
engaged to realize a better future. Pulse Surveys are tools you can use to drive engagement. People do not
like to change. You need to use definitive logic and reasoning to facilitate change. What’s-in-it-for-me concerns
must be satisfied. Your objective is to take a giant leap forward to get to where you need to be. Ability to
implement strategy effectively is complex. How will you get your people engaged? What do people need to know
to change perspective about their work? This program will help you answer these questions. Being busy does
not mean you create value. It is important to think about what you do each day. Today, workers seldom take
time to think about how they create value. You can use predictive insight to assess value creation. What you
discover can change your perspective. Strategy execution involves getting people to engage. Work must be meaningful.
People want to be respected for what they do. Use predictive insight to change your thinking.
One of the greatest challenges businesses face is data. Advancing technologies, globalization and growth of
the Internet represent a few drivers that have changed how people work. Businesses that do not recognize and
adapt to this change are at risk. Cause and effect are realities of situations and actions. Business structures
must adapt to support the way people “need” to work. Removing structures and silos of business to make work
flow more efficiently is vital. As information grows, knowledge worker productivity declines. People are
working more hours, but getting less done. This is because current data structures have become extremely
Information growth has created a great amount of instability for business. When we analyze data structures,
we discover that data and information is everywhere. Levels of redundancy, bottlenecks and inefficiencies
create risk. Connecting “data dots” between disparate systems and applications has created an unsustainable
structure of data that is difficult and expensive to maintain. Cobbling systems together heightens risk of
getting hacked. There is only one solution, businesses need to simplify how they manage and use strategic
data and information. This program will give you the answers you need to optimize your business.
