From the Publisher
This book is a condensed and updated version of my paperback book originally published by Praeger Publishers. The day to day grind can make you easily lose site of the big picture. We hope that our activities contribute to corporate objectives, but we quickly lose sight of the connection between what we do and what is critical to the group or organizations success. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can use the corporate Intranet to improve strategic decision making, create effective teams and implement change.
This book provides an innovative solution that identifies, integrates and displays your critical information in real time using Intranet technology. It can help you condense all the reports received from finance, operations, marketing, and other divisions into a single interactive report that’s always up to date. Intranet used this way can help create two-way communication that allows managers and workers at all levels of the company to participate. Combine outcomes and processes, then visually integrate and display the results in a user-friendly format, in real time. This book’s solution helps organizations, teams, departments and groups keep their focus on their true purpose, so you can implement strategies, increase teamwork and help manage change.
Technologically driven information overloads corporate leaders, managers, and employees alike, forcing them into a reactive mode with little time for strategic thinking. When the survey is completed, the teleconference over, and the weekend retreat a distant memory, we go back to our jobs unchanged. We hope that our activities make a difference, but we quickly lose sight of the connection between our work and critical outcomes. It doesn't have to be that way. Denton explains how to combine new interactive Intranet based technology with new data visualization software to focus on strategic decision making, effective team management, and the big picture.
