Using the Cloud to Drive Performance: Enterprise Project Management

At OPS, we’ve been developing cloud-based performance support systems for years. A question we’re often asked is, "What are the core elements of an effective project management system?" We recognize that many organizations spend millions of employee hours and millions of dollars on project management training. We also know that many organizations are substituting project management processes with chat-based platforms that provide little in the way of structure. So, they are sometimes disappointed, and mostly relieved, when our answer is (a) short and (b) reaffirms a comfortably structured approach.

Using New Technology to Improve Patient Experience

New tools helped nursing staff in Ohio improve Emergency Department admission times and facilitate communication between staff and patients. Within one year of implementation, the hospital saw a reduction in average length of stays, as well as overall costs. These improvements led to higher patient satisfaction scores.

ASQ and ISPI Mutual Opportunities for Influencing Global Performance

To help organizations get closer to their value objectives, a number of approaches and fields of practice have been developed. Two fields common in today's business environment are human performance technology (HPT) and quality. The recent publication of the Global State of Quality Research: Discoveries 2013 by the American Society for Quality provides customer- and practitioner-related data and offers an opportunity to link the purposes, philosophies, research, and practices of quality and HPT.

Giving Away Power

This book provides a framework for building commitment and improving performance across organizations. Most employees want more control over their daily work and most managers want to give it. Yet, the distribution of decision making power often happens by chance rather than by design. This book is a "quick start" guide for leaders and team members who want to give—and receive—power.

Using the Cloud to Accelerate Transformation and Influence Change

To improve organizational performance, influence change, and accelerate transformation, executives and their teams need timely, accurate, and unbiased information. Good information, delivered at incredible speed, provides the ability to make better and faster decisions relative to the competition. Continuous performance improvement, powered by cloud technologies, helps organizations move from static lists to informed decision making and accelerated results. Cloud computing is based on the processing and storage of data and information external to the organization.

TrendSpotters: DOTMLPF

DOTMLPF is an acronym and mnemonic that is pronounced: "dot-mil-p-f." Once you say it aloud, it is easier to read and remember. The DOD looks at performance in terms of capabilities. Their gap analysis process is part of the Joint Capabilities Integration Development System (JCIDS). They use DOTMLPF at the front end to assist planners consider a range of solutions when addressing performance improvement issues.
