4. How can a tracking system be leveraged for other projects?
Once you have a customized tracking system in place, Zipher will work with you to easily standardize your tracking system and:
Re-purpose the system for similar and future projects
Utilize the system to increase your efficiency
We work with our clients to identify processes that can be recycled when setting up a standard version of the tracker to serve as a template. We then edit the individual trackers to include specific fields or metrics required for that project and adjust reporting and dashboards accordingly. Longevity is key if you want a system to last year over year and adapt to new tactics as company objectives shift and change.
5. Who will be responsible for providing information and/or keeping the tracker and dashboards up to date?
As important as it is to consider your audience, it is equally as important to think about:
How do we make tracking feasible and simple for the organization?
Who will be responsible for updating the tracker or providing updates for the tracker?
How can we make this simple to limit the time for tracking?
Does the information required already exist in some form where it can be leveraged using a business intelligence tool to avoid double entry of data?
As a part of our program management process, Zipher’s project managers familiarize themselves with the abilities of the tactical teams they are working with, and design streamlined trackers for ease of use. We consider the team’s bandwidth and develop trackers that are easy to use and measured to match the project cadence so updating is done in a timely and effective manner.
There are a variety of program management system options saturating the market today. These options make it challenging to find the best solution for your organization, but we are here to help!
Zipher employs business intelligence tools to present the information through secure data connections. These tools align the updates collected against strategic initiatives and present the information in a way that is appropriate for different groups within MA such as Field Medical, Medical Communications, Biostats, etc. with each group assigned a unique dashboard surrounding their project data and progress. Regional groups can also be provided with their own view (such as US, EU, APAC, etc.). Each team has real-time visibility of the progression for their own projects and leadership can maintain a bird’s eye view while maintaining strict security standards to align with legal and compliance requirements.
