How does one find out exactly what is causing the company to stay small? How does one know where to look? How does one know if the right reason they thought cause? How long should it take to evaluate a scene in an organization? I am sure many executives ask these questions from themselves. I know I did until I completed my Data Series Evaluator’s Course. This Blog answers such questions. No matter how big or small the organization or company, there are some “basic” tools that executives need to have. One of the most “basic” but very important tools is keeping statistics for every product in the company. By doing so, an executive can “manage by statistics” and see at a glance how well the company is doing compared to last week or few weeks ago. Then an executive can see which area of his company is lacking or producing less that it should have. After gathering some data, he is able to go and inspect the area of production and “evaluate” the scene to find out if there are any outpoints. However, the executive needs to have an “ideal scene” in his mind, meaning he has to imagine how he wants his department to look like. For example, how organized does he want the area to be? How many products does he want made per hour? Therefore, after going to the “existing scene” he can compare the “ideal scene” with the “existing scene” and find out how different or even similar they are. After doing some research and some investigation, an executive would have an idea what things need to be handled. Then he needs to dream up a “bright idea” to handle the scene and the situation. So, if the scene improved that means the “reason” was the right one and the executive did a good investigation of the area and his evaluation was correct. However, sometimes the scene does not improve. The executive must immediately change everything back to what it was before and investigate further. In addition, it should not take an evaluator more that few hours to complete all the above. It’s not a task that takes days, but rather hours. I promise you that if anyone takes this course, he or she will be able to find the right situations and handle them right away. Investigatory tools are important for executives up on the echelons of management. The higher the position in the company, the more they need to know how to investigate situations. I am very interested to know how other executives evaluate their companies and how often do they get the result they are hoping for.
