What if you could save your company $100,000 (or more) and with relatively little effort?
Imagine the impact on your career if you were perceived as a “winner” for delivering positive change that affects your company’s bottom line, instead of someone who is mired in meetings for months on end.
Recently, a client reached out to me for a set of fundamental operation metrics for his supply chain analytics initiative. His company is relatively small yet profitable enough to do without comprehensive analytics.
The leadership team recognized the need for a better understanding of how their business is running (from inventory cycle counts to production lead time to on-time delivery).
Could they have reached out to larger agencies, who will in turn farm out the job to low-wage workers? Absolutely.
Would this client have the correct metrics needed to analyze his company’s performance while justifying the return-on-investment (in terms of time and money) if they were to hire just about anyone with the right words on a resume? Maybe. (It depends on the roll of the dice.)
One of the biggest complaints that I hear from customers is that the developer they hired “has the technical skills, but he can’t talk to the business users”. As a result, metrics miss the mark (if they use the reports at all).
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
That’s why I’m co-presenting at the ASUG Fall Focus conference in Chicago, IL (September 19-21) with my good friend Amber Christian. Our presentation is titled “Find cost-saving opportunities with custom-made metrics in weeks instead of months”.
We will show your team how to get a pulse on your company’s health with very simple reporting and how to extend those reports for your company’s needs, all without breaking the bank.
Can’t make the show? Drop me an email and if there is enough interest, I’ll host a FREE webinar to preview the talk. Deal? Deal.
I believe there’s an incredible story hidden in every team. The way I share the lessons in these stories is through conversation and data. I just happen to build the analytics that asks the next question.
