Five Strategies to Improve the Quality of Data – Business Operations Performance Management

Five Strategies to Improve the Quality of Data – Business Operations Performance Management | Business Operations | Scoop.it
Without improvements in the quality and completeness of data captured at source, changing the processes and systems will have little impact. Good data is the lifeblood of any business and requires ...
Suchitra Mishra's insight:

Data is everybody’s business. Whether we create, share or consume data, we all should be concerned about quality of the data in the organization. Unless this awareness about the importance of the quality of data and the role that each function (and not just IT) plays in ensuring the right quality of data is ingrained into the organization as part of the culture, we cannot tap the full power and potential of the available data.

Consulting and working in emerging markets is big challenge. My Africa experience has been a mixed bag of  confusion in trying to balance spirituality with professional functions. From start up to operations, navigating corruption is a built in competency. I think it is all about leadership and governance culture.

This is so unbelievably important, especially if you have employees! Even as a dedicated entrepreneur, though, I find myself struggling with distraction. I know it's even worse for people who don't have as much motivation to perform.

 

Plugins that shut off access to certain sites are helpful, but I often find I get the most done when I block my internet access completely (though that's not an option for every type of task).
