Asap (re-)action on any new or modified data on a work daily basis
Data plan into data practice Understanding and learning on-the-data what needs to be collected and how that happens in practice . Reviewing the data, every work day, and get to know the pro’s and con’s of the data planned better and better in practice. The intention to really understand the data you've got and need and reviewing the data as fulfilling this need. Getting data strong by consistently and consciously doing data review.
Data review routine Consistently scanning and reading received data. All new and modified data since the last workday. The way for strong data success. A workdaily routine. The first thing you do at work; before opening your e-mail, picking up the telephone and grabbing some coffee.
Acting up on any new or modified data every workday can be seen as an iceberg. The part above sea level is what you focus on. The smallest part of the iceberg. And all you do is to get this data complete, consistent, accurate and logical as soon as possible. All kinds of small actions, every work day again. As soon as data is reviewed as complete, consistent, accurate and logical it becomes part of the iceberg beneath sea level. The biggest, done and stable part of the iceberg. No need to keep looking at. Focus, time and energy is needed for the top of the iceberg, above sea level only. Keep that top part of the iceberg as small as possible and you'll grow and enjoy what you do much more!
Asap feedback on any new and modified data Asap feedback on any inconsistency, missing or confusing data piece encountered. Take action on each data piece encountered immediately. Choose, decide, sent. Send tiny actions to the people that can take the required action. Send them right away, as the tiny action each observation is. So people can respond immediately. Great chance they can still recall the data sent and respond to your question by heart, quickly, as you’ve provided them asap feedback. Now both of you have the data observation resolved and off you plate. Data done.
The steady flow of tiny actions, asap feedback when people send new or modified data is the way to have strong data. Data you can rely on as complete, consistent, accurate and a logical story. Data you can make data based decisions with. No more need to ask for data status, just using it. A flow of light contacts. Tiny choices easily understood and responded. Tiny actions, les mistakes. Any mismatch left easily turned around to handle better. Doing data on a daily basis builds stable relations. Which makes guarding and working with data fun!
