Michelle* received the dreaded news on Friday; she had to coordinate who, out of three-hundred employees of a local council, needed which type of training, and she only had one week to do it….
As head of Workforce and Skills Development, the task fell to Michelle, who is the first to admit that her Excel skills are limited at best. She tried to do the analysis necessary, coordinating training ranging from 3 to 20 courses per person, but was spending around one hour on each employee, using training software and Excel spreadsheets. This was cut down to twenty minutes per case when she hired a temp who knew his way around Excel, but it was still not time efficient enough, and the deadline was fast approaching!
There was only one solution: OrgVue. Within two hours of using OrgVue to understand the problem, create a methodology and merge data the issue was solved and the task was complete. A daunting task which was potentially going to take 300 hours to complete was done in just 2 hours.
This solution can now be done in 30 minutes, scalable to 20,000 people, meaning that not only does OrgVue save time, but staff development can also be managed more efficiently and in turn, the workforce is more skilled.
