Get accurate reports on time

Rectify tools
Provide employees with advanced tools:

• They start using advanced data analysis and visualization techniques instead grubbing about in Excel 2007

• They create reports and presentations in one day, instead of spending weeks on aligning diagrams in slides

• They get efficient use of new tools, instead of making the same mistakes again and again
Change mindsets
Change their approach to data analysis:

• I teach employees to identify KPIs in big data, find insightful correlations and give answers based on facts

• Assess report from a CEO's point of view, not contractor

• Bring things forward without waiting for tasks to be assigned
