Too much information? Too little meaning?
Running a business without the right information is like practising cartwheels in the dark – sooner or later you’ll hit an immovable object!
But too much information can cloud decision making, while insufficient or flawed information can lead to missed targets and poor performance. Improved business intelligence can help you fine-tune your metrics to minimise superfluous data while helping you identify the key performance indicators that really matter.
We work with FDs, CFOs, CEOs and CIOs to restructure planning and budgeting cycles to consume fewer resources and align behaviours by optimising the way information is used and ...

UnifiedMI - speak the same performance language
Optimise the way management information is produced, organised and accessed
The effectiveness of a team's performance is strongly related to how individual functions and team members interpret management information.
UnifiedMI looks at the information used across an organisation with the aim of creating a common management information language, while fine-tuning this language to improve over time. This might include making cost-saving and efficiency benefits via centralisation (people, processes and technological). The result is a strong cross-functional synergy and a measurable improvement in performance throughout the business.
ValueMI - Better information for better performance

Top performing organisations adhere relentlessly to the following practices:
Define how they create and maintain sustainable value at least once a year, using a feedback loop system
Set performance targets for achieving this value which are then cascaded throughout all levels of the organisation
Manage organisational performance to meet these targets through the right combination of financial and operating goals and metrics
Link employee rewards, incentives, career development and performance evaluations to their success or failure in delivering these targets
Budgeting processes not linked to individual performance result in wasted resources and ineffective planning. Successful performance management depends upon measuring effectiveness: (doing the right things) ...

World-class business intelligence and performance management for small and mid-cap organisations
Why does one business fail while another prospers and grows? In almost every case it’s because it has not succeeded in aligning behaviours with the strategic goals of the organisation.
Businesses typically measure performance against meeting sales and / or budgetary targets. Such targets are set using forecasts based on information drawn from diverse sources. A strategic plan is then put in place to meet the objectives of the business.
So far, so good. But if the strategic objectives of your organisation do not connect meaningfully with the behaviours and expectations ...
