Learn how your organization communicates.
One of the display options available utilizes the Heinrich pyramid theory. The levels -or severity- is completely customizable to match your business. This enables you to see where the majority of issues are being identified and empowers you to drive goals through your organization.
- Drive down severity of incidents
- Understand where your business operates
- Create dialogues around significant events
A Standard Approach
Want to ditch the pyramids and revert to a more common tracking method? An alternate main display view can represent different segments of time. With each segment automatically colored to that days most significant event logged.
- Daily | Weekly | Monthly | Yearly Tracking
- Quick assessment review
- Most relatable visual metric method
Ask Why Seven Times
Ask why 5 times to get to the anatomy of the issue and then another 2 times to identify the area that the issue is coming out of. At the end of this process, the level of detail in the metrics available for display will truly open your eyes to how your organization operates and where your bottlenecks are. Bottom line – No more guessing where the problems are.
- Tried and True questioning methodology
- Drive to a consistent result
- Remove objective opinions
