For more years than he wishes to admit, … Web: queryconsultinggroup.com Details Managers everywhere are looking to grow market share, lower costs and improve customer service by maximizing the use of data throughout their businesses. Everyone, it seems, is talking about the benefits of data management and analysis, and its impact on decision-making.  And I’m confident much of the talk will prove to be true – over time. But I can’t help notice that today in most institutions the prevalent process is more conversation and consideration, than it is active doing. This isn’t surprising to me.There are many reasons why organizations are still doing more “thinking than doing.”  It takes time to learn what needs to be known in order to craft a data strategy, set appropriate goals, revise or build teams, build infrastructure and start the work of organizing and analyzing the available data, as well as collecting data from untapped sources.  It’s also true that large data analysis projects and in-house “builds” create an “anticipation challenge” defined by the frustration felt when a project’s perceived value is so great that people are frustrated by the lack of results in the near term. Clearly, the job in front of managers is a big one.  Time to results is a genuine challenge.But one does not have to wait for the results of large-scale data projects to begin to benefit from today’s focus on data-driven decision-making.  There are business intelligence solutions in market now that provide already available member and organization management information, delivered via dashboards, that will move your organization forward in both decision-making capabilities and financial results.  Dashboard based, data-driven solutions such as “financial performance management” applications are available now at affordable prices to promote your organization’s effective use of data.  These relatively easy to implement solutions can both promote your ability to make timely, effective decisions and prove the value of your broader data strategies by putting information, not just data, at your fingertips — now. In a matter of weeks you could put to work one of these industry-tested solutions and begin informing management decisions, tracking progress toward goals, and improving performance.One such area for immediate impact can be found in dashboard-based solutions that deliver full general ledger and profit and loss information and analysis.  These tools allow you to realize efficiencies from automation that reduce staff time and errors. They provide daily performance tracking and reporting, with drill-down capability, that can lead to data-driven dialogues and better, timelier, decision-making. Your institution has at its disposal all the financial information it needs to understand in nearly real time the impacts of decisions on financial performance.  But to do so, fully, you need to deploy dashboard-based business intelligence tools; far more than spreadsheets, these tools bring the data together in one place to share, discuss and inform action.Financial institution managers are rightly spending time looking to data-focused projects that drive growth, reduce costs and improve processes.  And managers expect their efforts toward data analytics and decisioning to pay off in the future. But managers should also look to already available services that promote member understanding and organization management “out of the box” because these services can help you grow your decision-making capabilities quickly, even while you are learning to employ broader analytic capabilities for your organization. In short, there are data-driven solutions available now that can quickly take you places you need to go. Look to these existing tools in order to promote early successes while you develop and execute your longer-term data strategy.last_img read more

first_imgAccording to the statement, Ogba stated that it was regrettable that Abati wrote authoritatively about a subject he has no firsthand information about, and wondered why Abati, who he alleged was not in Asaba, would write authoritatively about an event he did not witness.The statement reads in part: “Abati’s description of the Championship organisation as a disgrace is unfortunate and disgraceful. “Dr. Abati, a respected journalist, has a right to his opinions but to describe the organisation of CAA Asaba 2018 as a disgrace shows he is acting in a manner that suggests that he is being used.“It is regrettable that Abati wrote authoritatively about a subject he has no firsthand information on. He was not in Asaba, so why write authoritatively about an event you did not witness? I am sure if he had contacted his junior colleague, Olukayode Thomas, who is our Head of Media, he would have gotten some firsthand information and clearerinsight.“He could have called to check his facts and would have saved himself all the embarrassment the falsehood he penned is causing. He wasn’t even ready to give the organiser the benefit of the doubt. It is lamentable that a writer of Abati’s status in the media is relying on unverifiable information available on online media to write asensitive article’’.Ogba said the Championship had hitches that were dealt with swiftly and the few countries involved were grateful for the manner in which the issues were resolved.He said: “Compared to previous African Championships, we witnessed the least complaints, especially in the areas of feeding, accommodation and transportation. Contrary to Abati’s story, no country slept at the airport for three days.“Regular travellers like Abati know that our airports shut down by 11pm, so how can people sleep in an airport that is completely closed down by night? We had four hotels in Lagos. They include the two Ibis near the airport and Novotel where the athletes and officials that could not connect a flight to Asaba stayed and Abati is free to contact the management of the hotels.”Ogba who is apparently furious over the publication, argued that Abati was in a hurry to do a hatchet job and therefore did not tarry to carry out his research properly before going to the press, noting that a simple Google search would have told Abati that Ibrahim Gusau is the President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) and not SolomonOgba.He added: “The search machine would also have informed Abati that it was not the AFN that organised the championships. Google would have supplied Abati facts to show that Team Nigeria under AFN was just one of the participating countries and that Tanzania was one the few countries that did not even participate.”Describing Abati as a neophyte in athletics, Ogba pointed that such explains why he swallowed the stories he read online about a bad track hook, line and sinker.He further said: “Asaba 2018 had the highest number of world-classathletes in Africa in recent times. If the track was bad, they will not run. Why would they risk their careers if the track was unfit for running? Caster Semenya ran a sub-50 to win the women 400m; Tobi Amusan ran a sub-13 to win the 100m hurdles; athletes who are running with caution don’t return such fantastic times, times good enough to win either the Olympic Games or IAAF World Championships.“Asaba Championship is the first ever championships were athletes get prize money for performances and were countries get transport allowances. Abati ought to have been better informed by sources in the know of sports related affairs.”However, he urged Abati to do a retraction of the publication within 48 hours or he would face a lawsuit.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Peter UzohoThe Chairman of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the just concluded 2018 African Senior Athletics Championships held in Asaba, Delta State, Chief Solomon Ogba, has described a back page article written by Dr. Reuben Abati, published in THISDAY Tuesday, August 7, 2018, with the title: ‘The Asaba Disgrace’, as “unfortunate and disgraceful.”In a statement issued Tuesday by the committee’s Head of Media, Olukayode Thomas, made available to THISDAY, Ogba said though Abati, a respected journalist has a right to his opinion but for him to describe the organisation of the Championship as a disgrace showed that he, he was acting in manner that suggested he was being used.last_img read more
