How a Balanced Score Card Helped Executives Target Strategic Growth
Our consultants transformed manual, inconsistent reporting into enterprise-wide business insights.
Business decisions were based on inaccurate, inconsistent information due to the lack of ‘a single source of truth’ for sales reporting.
- No standard way of filtering data collected from different sources
- Different managers in the same meeting were reporting different numbers
