Key Challenges

Clipboard with checkmarks and a bullseye behind it.

1. Unclear Goals:

Objectives not documented, targets not detailed and team expectations not shared

Gears not working with a caution symbol next to them.

2. Inefficient Reporting:

IT lacks bandwidth for data projects, supply chain teams overwhelmed and S&OP teams spend hours on spreadsheets

Various options with someone looking confused.

3. Action Paralysis:

Actions not documented, lack of follow-up, and meetings focused on news sharing, rather than collaboration
