Having trouble seeing past the numbers? Bring them to life. Make a map.
Every day, your company may waste hundreds (even thousands) of dollars on inefficient stocking and distribution models. Your inventory is either overfilled or insufficient. One of your products sells out at one of your stores, but collects dust at another. You try to stay ahead of the game, but demand fluctuates from month to month and from store to store. You can't ever seem to keep up. You've got spreadsheets upon spreadsheets of data, but your projections always miss the mark. What's wrong with this picture?
What's wrong is, there's no picture.
Because like they say, a picture's worth a thousand words (or in this case, a thousand numbers).
