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:
Is this information going to help me achieve my goals more effectively?
Looking objectively at what I have do I need to know it?
Can I rely on this information?
Can I rely on its source?
Is it the right time for me to get this?
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?
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!
