Assess… Measure. .. Then Lead With Your FPI 2.0 Strategy for Success
APPA’s FPI 2.0 is now powered by Tableau whose stated mission is to help people see and understand data.
“In 2020 the world will generate 50 times the amount of data as in 2011 and 75 times the number of information sources (IDC, 2011). Within these data are huge opportunities for human advancement. But to turn opportunities into reality, people need the power of data at their fingertips. Tableau is building software to deliver exactly that.
Our products are transforming the way people use data to solve problems. We make analyzing data fast and easy, beautiful and useful. It’s software for anyone and everyone.”
Measuring and monitoring performance identifies problems, informs the planning of future activities, and identifies areas of excellence to be celebrated. Performance metrics are most useful when they align with operational and institutional goals. Metrics should focus on a handful of key metrics as opposed to dozens of unrelated data points.
By harnessing the power of Tableau, APPA’s newest dashboards will allow our members to make better, more data driven decisions without an intermediary serving as their interpreter. It’s your data and now you have myriad ways to see and understand your data which will allow you to take control of facilities, have a seat at the decision making table and make the case for change without guesswork for staffing and operations, capital renewal and modernization, and employee/customer success. By showing present day performance in the context of goals and historical trending, participants will be able to generate insights and best practices that drive action and guidance for next steps on their unique institutional continuous improvement journey.
We believe data analysis should be about asking questions, so that data can reach its full potential and positively transform your entire organization. A data-driven organization is filled with a workforce that uses data, information, and skills to make more informed decisions and interactions. But it’s not just about creating or passing around reports and forecasts. The end goal is to get helpful data into the hands of decision makers, support staff, and management teams.
Data yearns to be free and transparent, to tell its stories to all those who care about its revelations. Discovering and sharing those stories is easy to do now within the APPA community. Come join your peers on this exciting FPI 2.0 data journey!
