Dealing with Data

Visual Enterprise is a powerful tool for dealing with data.

Business gurus frequently challenge us to lead with data; to ground our strategies and tactics in the day-to-day reality of our business. Frequently, this is very difficult to do. The problem is that data is difficult to find and frequently it isn’t very trustworthy.

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."
-- Benjamin Disraeli

Visual is a logical repository for the data that comes from operating your company. Yet Visual Enterprise is seldom where most leaders turn for answers. There are many reasons for this, but the two most common are:

  • The data in Visual isn’t trusted, and
  • Even if it were trusted no one in the company really knows how to get it out of the system.

These are two very different problems which require two very different skill-sets to solve. There is, however, a logical order to solving them. There is no point in trying to get data out of Visual unless you can trust it.

That means that the first task on your road to getting information to drive your company’s success is to strengthen the processes that fill Visual Enteprise with data. Visual Enterprise must be fully integrated into your organization’s operations wherever it is logical to do so and it must be the sole repository of truth. Now when it comes time to answer a question, data in Visual is used to answer the question and that answer is trusted.
