HI-CHART WITH IBCS®
Business reports serve to paint a clear and understandable picture of businesses. Managers only have a solid foundation for decision making when business figures can be correctly analysed.
Does your Company Speak the Same Language?
Business communication is not in good shape. Executive managers struggle through overloaded reports, or they don’t even bother studying the carefully prepared presentations or using the dashboards in the first place.
Those creating the reports feel misunderstood and the recipients feel poorly served. What’s going wrong?
The primary reason for such inefficiency is a lack of standards in visual communication. When the diagrams and tables all look different, readers cannot recognise patterns and are left to find their own way around each new report. This takes a lot of effort and may well lead to differing interpretations. Yet too many management decisions are still being made, and businesses managed, on this basis.
