What can we do for you?
It’s often rather simple questions most management and CEOs repeatedly are confronted with at overall level.
But: It takes often enormous efforts to answer them. For some it’s more or less the feeling, the impression about certain situations guiding them for an answer (often a consequence of a lack of facts on the table).
For some it is facts only, for some it’s both. Information is in the systems and it is with the people. We combine
both in our information management strategy. We make facts visible and understandable.
How is it going?
A(n automated) management dashboard containing a meaningful, correct and understandable set of KPIs(key performance indicators) is a solid base for answering this very question.
A well designed dashboard will enable you to answer this question from a meter distance to your screen.
Facts should be available when needed, easily readable and they should be retrieved efficiently.
(Avoiding error prone, manual data processing via numerous Excel sheets for instance)
IBVision provides hands on consultancy from getting the right information captured until your KPIs are available in you “management cockpit”.
How will it go if…?
A dashboard displaying solidity and KPIs’ development over time related to specific activities helps to obtain a clear picture of how business will continue under certain circumstances.
IBVision also provides a simulation tool which allows simulating scenarios (How will financial results look like if electricity costs rise with 3%? Or can I afford to invest in a certain project when increasing specific revenue?, etc.. More details about our simulation on request)
How was it going?
In project management it should be mandatory to assess the situation at delivery as well as some time later.
So called project benefit tracking which can be agreed at the beginning of a project helps to later see how successful certain projects have been. This is especially meaningful in public sector (governmental, hospital, etc..) as well as in larger organizations that conduct improvements in processes)
IBVision develops project assessment and benefit tracking in collaboration with our clients to give them best
insight into their project management
How much insight have you got in decisive activities and crucial parameters of your organization?
Having insight into crucial areas is helping to make decisions more firm and with higher comfort level. Investment decisions should be based on solid facts. We at IBVision are getting you these facts on the table.
Implementing reporting can be done via existing structure and tools or by investing in new solutions. As supplier independent consultancy we can suggest the best and cost friendly solution.
What would you like to change, to improve or adapt?
Changes, improvements and alike are an inherent part of an organization’s life. There are minor steps to be taken and there are big ones. Every improvement is a change and each of them has its unique characteristics. There are many attributes in an organization that undergo changes. This can be organizational and business processes, people, skills, communication, material, prices, working instructions, IT, facilities, etc.. to name a few.
How to keep track of all these changes and what does it mean for the organization’s development?
Ongoing change is a fact and it’s an asset to exercise awareness for controlled change.
If an organization has implemented a smart reporting structure then these changes will be reflected in the various reports. Be it operational reports to plan production or handle client requests or strategic reports
for decision makers in management roles. Apart of ongoing, standard reports, so called ad-hoc reports can be created to bring light into specific areas. (As example it could be a new marketing strategy that sales wants to see reflected in their figures or client service management that likes to check client satisfaction based on service indicators. )
How is the organization working from a people’s and social perspective?
How is leadership conducted? How happy are employees working for the organization?
Measuring hard facts and bringing numbers in relation to activities is one thing,- judging on how people
feel and how to improve employee satisfaction is simply another.
Communication, leadership, people management and organizational management is crucial for getting a high score in employee satisfaction.
IBVision has contacts within our network of leadership development and communication experts in Swedish, English and German.
Do you believe that IT can be used in better way? – for better efficiency while gaining comfort?
Lots of data is produced these days and lots of information is out there and disappears unnoticed.
A big part is usually not relevant after all. At the same time IT systems are often not matching the organization’s need or existing systems are not used in the way it would help employees and organization.
This counts for financial systems, CRM (client relationship management) systems, admin systems and even Excel sheets.
It often needs only a different way of working with exiting systems to improve things and make people’s job easier and less frustrating. It often doesn’t require investing in IT.- Just changing the way of working with exiting IT can improve a lot.
Our consultancy is based on finding the best way to perform while keeping cost focus. - Together with our clients we’ll define, agree and perform changes to improve. The result of our analysis will determine what to suggest. It might be just a change of how to work with IT, it might also be change of IT only or both.
As outlined in our strategy, IT is a tool that should enable to perform business in desired way.
