Business performance and distributed decision support
Overall performance rests on one key reality:
Performance is delivered by all parts of an organisation. From large departments to systems to individuals, all have their role to play.
To achieve business goals, people across the entire organisation, at all levels, make decisions every single day that contribute to overall performance.
All these decisions – large and small – and all these people matter.
What is a decision, when you break it down? A decision is a choice about a course of action. And making the right decision requires an awareness of what is happening right then in the business – context.
Getting all these decisions right is not always straightforward. Businesses need clear, distributed decision-support mechanisms to perform at the highest level.
This is how ThoughtWeb helps you manage business performance. It provides distributed decision support – context, awareness – that allows the decision-making processes of your organisation, and all individuals within it, to be aligned in a way that will deliver the best possible performance in any given circumstance.
Everything is connected
In business, everything is connected: people, processes, organisation structure, information, experience.
These connections shape your organisation: what it does, how it operates, where it can improve, and how it can change.
The skill is to know which connections matter, what they mean, and how best to use them.
ThoughtWeb allows you to map every aspect of your business, identify who is accountable for each of them, and define the connections between them.
You can map the business as it currently operates, or as you want it to operate in the future.
When you have created the business map, you can identify the knowledge you need to turn the model into a living business solution, through dashboards, reporting, notifications and collaboration.
You can form new teams, assign new tasks, delegate actions and responsibilities, as the need arises.
Bringing clarity to operational complexity.
SIPRA CONTINUOUS STATE ASSESSMENT
Once your solution is in place, ThoughtWeb’s patented algorithm, SIPRA, measures overall business performance and continuously measures the performance of each aspect of your business against your goals, telling you what is significant and what to do next.
SIPRA gives each person their own view of their responsibilities and priorities, as well as an organisation-wide perspective, so everyone understands how their tasks and actions contribute to the goals of the organisation.
