7 Tips to Make Information Chaos Worse in Your Organization

The possibilities for more information chaos surround us.  Content is proliferating at geometric rates, and organizations and the people who work in them are struggling with massive amounts of information overload.  The sheer volume of content and data entering our organizations is growing in complexity, volume, and variety. That would all be complicated enough on its own.  But what are organizations doing – often with the best of intentions – to actually make things WORSE?  Here are my top 7 tips to make things WORSE!  I've put together a free tip sheet with the details -- check it out, and feel free to spread it around if you choose -- just click the button. Assume that your existing process platforms – like your ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), Human Resource Information Systems or Accounts Payable system – can just handle everything. Assume your nephew can probably create the online forms you need because he is pretty good at technology. “Go paperless” by just using your copier to scan to a folder on a shared drive. Go cheap when it comes to getting outside expert help. Tackle ALL content and processes at once. Let IT handle this; business people don’t have time. Allow “the business” to buy lots and lots of unconnected single application SaaS solutions. ----- In the Toronto, NY or DC metro areas?  We've got a process improvement seminar coming up in your neighborhood!  They're FREE.
