Don’t confuse faster information with faster decisions. The goal should not be quicker information, but quicker decision making. The key is to get the RIGHT information faster.

The greatest potential for improvement comes from better understanding of our true information needs and in bringing more order to workplaces where disconnected processes and unstructured information have been the norm.

Join this interactive discussion to:

  • Identify the different types of decisions your organization makes
  • Explore the four types of work our decisions support
  • Determine what information needs to be available fast – and what doesn’t
  • Avoid the painpoints of gathering information
This webinar will help you focus on gathering the right information and on the best processes to deliver it.
