You may perhaps be interested to know the role of digital technologies especially in statistical management. The fact it is very much the best and considered to be a manual process. You need to first understand your requirements as well as workflows well. Then migrate to some proven automated solution. Unfortunately, this approach may be filled with some significant pitfalls which you should be aware of.
Making Technological decisions
Any person having managed manually a performance program for a good amount of time can verify pain involved in such endeavors. It is very much possible to develop solutions themselves to overcome such issues. Smaller organizations having highly repetitive or infrequent reporting requirements may stick to PowerPoint or Excel for some time. Decisions are based mainly on the organizational structure, scale and size including your user demands. A well-organized and well-disciplined Performance Management Team can do their tasks comfortably by availing Microsoft Office approach.
Long-term benefits offered by Strategy Management
Process automation does offer numerous long-term benefits. Also, Performance Management Core Team as well as the program can derive real-time benefits. Some of the reasons for importance of strategical management are given below:
1. Scalability across organization also including remote sites:
Remote locations can be much easier to engage with via shared interface. This is instead of chasing email exchanges. It ranges from data collection to interpretation as well as analyzing performance.
2. Configuration Management/Release Control:
A particular version of ‘Truth’ specifically vital if rewards and incentives are planned need to get tied to data.
3. Resilience towards staff changes:
The same applies for change agents and Leadership alike. With the arrival of new leaders, it is expected that they will introduce some changes in the right direction. However, trying to develop process development within the system will ensure not requiring changing how it is managed. Introducing Productivity Apps will also make a huge difference. As change agents leave, it is quite obvious that a part of process is likely to go with them. This is in case their know-how has not been incorporated into the system’s business rules.
Every time, there is held a quarterly or monthly meeting, the system is likely to ensure proper preparation, follow-through and meeting. They are made consistent irrespective of how foggy the practitioners’ memories are. Once reports get configured to match your specific needs report generation is likely to be snapped. This is where digital technologies prove to be useful.
5. Organizational learning:
Seasoned staff and newcomers alike can get help from the system to learn consistently the process from a single place. They can learn at their own convenience and pace. It helps them to avoid chasing few experts to know how things work. Productivity Apps when created and installed can help make the learning process easy and quick.
The process interface, feel and look are quite identical across the organization. This facilitates the practitioners to learn fast, increase their mobility and retention capacity.
Data often is considered to be in functional silos. On the other hand, actions, decisions and insights tend to be cross-functional. Trying to consolidate performance management information within the tool does offer cross-functional insights related integration opportunities and benefits. Positive Technological decisions might otherwise not be possible.
8. Real-time availability:
Senior managers and executives can develop the ability to check organizational performance as deemed necessary to suit their needs. Thus, they do not have to track performance data on-demand manually or wait for monthly meeting.
Performance or Strategy Management process can be termed to be a decision, something that needs to be taken seriously.
