Fixing your Typewriter Mode Problem

Kurt B. Carr can help you fix your Visual typewriter

There are a couple of important steps to take so you can trust the data in Visual:

  • Your people must be knowledgeable and proficient in the use of Visual Enterprise. If they haven’t had Visual training recently, it is time to schedule a refresher.
  • Your company must have viable and fully utilized processes and use Visual as a framework for the process’s execution.
  • There must be a minimum number of side systems in existence, and those should only exist when no reasonably comparable capability exists in Visual.
  • Data originating from the execution of your business must be entered into Visual in a disciplined and timely fashion. (The presence of stacks of paper waiting to be entered into Visual is a big blinking sign that this isn’t happening).
  • The data that is in Visual must be used in the daily business of running your company.
  • Documents that reside in Visual are not printed out and filed as the “permanent record.”
  • The data in Visual is the sole and trusted “source of truth” when answering questions about your business.
  • There is a full commitment to ensuring the accuracy of the data in Visual by all users.

Obviously this is a daunting list of requirements. You may wonder if your company can actually accomplish the task of getting Visual to work in this manner. It probably seems like too much work.

“Two men were examining the output of the new computer in their department. After an hour or so of analyzing the data, one of them remarked: 'Do you realize it would take 400 men at least 250 years to make a mistake this big?'”

If Visual is implemented in a way that delivers these results, the benefits to your organization will be much greater than just having reliable management data against which you can report (though that is a pretty big win in and of itself). When the data in Visual is trustworthy your company will naturally be more efficient and reliable in serving your customers.

You see, the requirements for ensuring accurate data are really just a measure of how effectively your organization operates. Visual’s health is just a thermometer-reading of your company’s health.
