A key part of leadership is anticipating future challenges. An equally important component of leadership is making sure your organization is ready to meet those challenges. In this article, you’ll learn how cloud-based business intelligence (BI) and human capital management (HCM) applications can help leaders position their organizations to tackle any challenges.
Collaboration becomes a non-negotiable requirement for effectively handling changes and challenges. Integrating different ideas makes it easier to analyze and tackle problems.
Improved collaboration is a huge focus of cloud applications. They make it possible to work from virtually anywhere. Geographic distance is no longer a barrier that keeps coworkers apart. Outputs such as HCM cloud reports can deliver the same information to everyone who needs it, thus making sure no one is missing the data they need to be an effective and engaged team member.
Decision-making is another key part of leading an organization. The bulk of a company’s internal decisions do not need to fall on a single leader or a small group of leaders. An effective strategy is to place intelligent decision making on the front line meaning empowering lower-level employees who are a bit closer to the issues at hand to make their own calls.
Leaders should still make key decisions when necessary. But no matter who’s making the decision, BI applications can help fuel the process by gathering and providing the information needed to come to the right conclusion. (Software like Oracle’s BIACM makes setting up such applications easy.)
Uplift Tomorrow’s Leaders
Effective leadership not only requires strong leaders in the present but also making sure the right future leaders are coming up behind them. Developing the leaders the organization will need for the long haul is key. That requires succession planning so that when a key vacancy needs to be filled, the organization is ready. It also requires ongoing development so that employees are ready to step into ever-more-important roles.
