Visibility

with one comment

Many leaders and managers depend too much on the people that they lead and manage to inform them of how things are going. Weekly, monthly, quarterly status meetings. Status updates via email.

Is that enough visibility to be effective?

Things are happening…….and you are getting filtered messages about it after the fact.

Today’s technology allows for better visibility.

As a leader or manager, what if visibility to everything going on within your organization or team was only a few mouse clicks away? An online dashboard with key metrics. An online Program / Project Portfolio.

As a leader or manager, what if you were automatically and immediately notified when key projects fell behind schedule or key metrics started to trend in the wrong direction?

I am not saying that a leader or manager should always allow themselves to be dragged into the details……but down in the details is where things are happening. And shouldn’t you have visibility to that?
