A picture is worth a thousand words
Everyone knows that old proverb, but few utilize its truth in operating their business. Many employees do not know how to read raw data reports. Some are too embarrassed to admit it, so they pretend that they can.
Converting KPI data to graphic presentations helps you to mentor your employees as to what is really important and to gauge how successful they are. It's also easier for you to visualize the bigger picture.
People respond to graphics much more effectively than they do to line after line of printouts. When they can actually "see" what is going right or wrong, especially in real-time, they become enabled to act immediately and effectively.
