A TYPICAL DAY AT THE OFFICE. Check-in at the office by 8:00 AM, just like every other day. Sat down with that freshly brewed first cup of coffee, hoping to get to work on some mind-boggling strategic planning for the next quarter, brainstorming for that new project, meeting with the stakeholders to do an extensive review of company expansion – these are the kinds of long-term task that helps the company grow. But you had barely taken a sip of coffee when you saw…stacks of reports, documentation and other paper works that need to be reviewed piling up on the office table… Then suddenly unnoticed, it is already 8:00 PM, and all what is done is collecting data from the complicated reporting and documentation process.
In today’s business organizations, they tend to introduce new reports, new guidelines and new processes which are so complex that in most cases, these methods either “fail to deliver” or just “make things worse”. We have listened to hundreds of managers talking about the undesirable impact of complexity in productivity, which leaves employees disengaged and unmotivated.
Agreeing on complexity as a challenge is one thing, but doing something about it is quite another — particularly for managers who are already over-worked, stressed, and can barely keep up with their current assignment. The solution lies in gaining an in-depth understanding of the system at work. With that knowledge, a company can design a combination of interventions that defines the root causes and adapt the system in a way that inspires and supports the desired behaviors, thus the need for “simplification” has become greater.
Investing in technology is a great way to save time by taking a process you already undertake and making it more productive. It can also help with automating, simplifying or even eliminating certain tasks like audits that would otherwise take employees days or weeks to complete. Therefore, setting up a cloud-based Performance Management Software such as TreeAMS, which they can access via internet rather than a completely separate device could be a good solution.
TreeAMS can also address the problem of adding components in an audit process such as new KPIs, new dashboards, new processes and new roles while not sacrificing simplification. Employees will spend less time on manual tasks, data will be safer, internal and external communications will be improved and you’ll have an edge over your competitors using the simplified audit process.
TreeAMS is the way of the present—and future. If you want to know more, you can visit https://www.treeams.com/audit-and-grow/.
