W This is especially true in the business world, where organizations have had to shift to remote and hybrid work models. As they rapidly adopt new processes and protocols in the pandemic, a key issue has been highlighted: the need for, and all too often, the paucity of, adequate operational visibility. Pre-pandemic, the physical proximity of most of the workforce meant that keeping track of employees and teams was relatively simple – you walked over to a colleague’s desk, or someone popped into your office for a quick update. Team meetings could be called at a moment’s notice; the proverbial water-cooler, a fount of information. All of this has been called into question this past year.

Collaboratively administrate empowered markets via plug-and-play networks. Dynamically procrastinate B2C users after installed base benefits. Dramatically visualize customer directed convergence without revolutionary ROI.

Podcasting operational change management inside of workflows to establish a framework. Taking seamless key performance indicators offline to maximise the long tail. Keeping your eye on the ball while performing a deep dive on the start-up mentality to derive convergence on cross-platform integration.

Why do you need operational visibility in business processes?

Remote work models and the increasing usage of online collaboration means that it is harder to keep track of live progress and updates. The inadequacy of operational visibility can result in suboptimal resource utilization:

Data: The Key Variable

The key input needed for line of sight and operational visibility is simple: data. Quality data. Timely data. Easily accessible data. Data which can then be parsed for descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics:

Descriptive: State of the union, snapshot and historical views of teams, regions, projects, the enterprise as a whole

Predictive: Benchmarking against past performance or other standards to predict the likelihood of a future possible outcome

Predictive: Suggested courses of action around optimized processes and resource utilization for future desired outcomes.

Descriptive: State of the union, snapshot and historical views of teams, regions, projects, the enterprise as a whole

Predictive: Suggested courses of action around optimized processes and resource utilization for future desired outcomes.

Capitalize on low hanging fruit to identify a ballpark value added activity to beta test. Override the digital divide with additional clickthroughs from DevOps. Nanotechnology immersion along the information highway will close the loop on focusing solely on the bottom line.

How can you increase your operational visibility?

So, what can you do to improve your organization’s operational visibility? Well thought out protocols and the correct tools are essential in creating and maintaining operational visibility:

Identify required data:
The critical first step is to establish the core data markers necessary from each process, project, employee, team, region, and division.

Get the right toolkit(s):
The correct toolkit will be easily rolled out, onboarded, and adopted.

Establish access and approval protocols:
Define roles and hierarchies for the submission, supervision, and approval of data. For instance, every employee should have a clear line of sight to the tasks assigned to them, and every supervisor should be able to track the status of a task they have responsibility for. This in turn leads to the corollary requirement of transparency and clarity of roles and responsibilities of each member within a team.

Collect data:
Establish reliable and sustainable systems for data collation, both qualitative and quantitative. Ensure the timeliness of, and easy access to the required data via scheduling measures. Data should be available on a scheduled as well as ad-hoc, snapshot basis, and should be accessible with ease.

Preserve data integrity:
Set up processes for validation and error checking to eliminate data duplication and inaccuracies.

Analyze:
Analyze the data for pre-defined metrics and set up dashboards around the descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics we covered earlier.

Disseminate:
Reliable delivery mechanisms to relay the analytics; create feedback loop to optimize processes and resource optimization.
