Making The Most Of Management Information

Managers MUST manage information well – this is the very lifeblood of your success and that of your organisation!

This need not be a difficult task and it can be dealt with very effectively and efficiently just by following some simple rules outlined below:

Relevant?

Is this information going to help me achieve my goals more effectively?

Looking objectively at what I have do I need to know it?

Accurate?

Can I rely on this information?

Can I rely on its source?

Timely?

Is it the right time for me to get this?

Complete?

Do I have enough information to make a judgement or a decision?

Based on the information I do have will I make a good decision?

Format?

Can I work with this information as it is or do I have to do something with it first?

Only poor and ineffective management blames a lack of information for deciding on a course of action: if the information you have cannot be relied upon either do not make the decision or get more information before acting!

Good Luck!
