Business Challenge

Our client is a Fortune 200 Consumer Goods company and a global manufacturer and retailer of apparel footwear & accessories. Our client wanted a visual dashboard that aligned key metrics across multiple disciplines and functions of the organization. This dashboard needed to be comprehensive, modular, and repeatable to ensure a long term benefit. Similar initiatives had been tried before, but they continually stalled due to a lack of structure and/or competing priorities.

The key challenges facing our clients were:

  • Obtaining early executive engagement critical to providing positive momentum and long term planning.
  • Undefined, confusing, or inadequate metrics in disparate data sources.
  • Lack of historical data collection processes for time based comparative reporting.

Client & Engagement Quick Facts

  • Four month engagement with two waves consisting of development of dashboard and feedback.
  • Develop modular, repeatable process for creating and maintaining portfolio level dashboard.
  • Create documentation and tools to allow for future improvements and iterations of dashboard as needed by portfolio leadership.

Our Solution

Alignment of key players was paramount in the successful completion of the desired dashboard. This was achieved by developing waves of work that focused on “gettable” data while simultaneously planning for future functionality through the development of a backlog. Work resulted in a dashboard that provided new reporting capabilities to the organization and a defined process to guide and manage future improvements.

Business Benefits

Kenny & Company provided our client with an improved method of viewing and measuring the health of its organization. As the dashboard continues to mature the strategic and tactical benefits will improve leadership’s ability to actively manage the present and plan for the future.
