Organizations continue to look for ways to optimally serve customers, keep employees enthusiastic and motivated and achieve better results. Knowledge of the current status can play a major role in this, but how do you create a transparent organization within the current culture and daily activities? DATA KINGDOM explains the impact of transparency on an organization and how this can be achieved.
Make all information within the organization freely accessible to all people in the organization. No more uncertainties about what the strategy is, which goals have been set per department, which projects are linked to this and what the progress is on these goals and projects. Sharing factual information about people’s roles, responsibilities, personal goals, financial results, salaries, etc. This so-called radical transparency creates an environment in which employees can stop covering up, hiding or manipulating the situation. No one has to fool themselves or others and we learn to develop ourselves better.
Ensure that the information is updated automatically
An automated dashboard is a means to share the current status with all those involved, without the need for additional administration or actions. This can then be used at management level and a derived version at team level.
However, the large number of different systems within an organization often makes it difficult to have one clear overview of the current status of the complete picture. There are often all kinds of activities linked to multiple objectives, recorded in different systems. Each system has its own reporting or dashboard. Often, at most 1 or 2 reporting parts are looked at, because the rest is not relevant enough for the user.
A dashboard needs to add value
A dashboard must add value, eliminate reporting tasks and constantly meet the user’s information needs. DATA KINGDOM creates a tailor-made solution using Power BI; a dashboard based on the user’s information needs. Together with the organization, DATA KINGDOM creates a design for the dashboard, links it to the various systems and produces one overview that always shows the latest status.
