Fragmented information is undermining our businesses. 1-in-3 managers say that the daily data-dump is harming their physical health. About 2/3 say that information overload is harming their personal relationships and reducing workplace satisfaction. These startling stats from Reuters reveal a systemic fault line in our hyper-wired offices.

We’ve all experienced information overload. Any Google search will explode your browser with millions of options in about .05 seconds—madness! The Economist found that current approaches to data:

  1. Amplify anxiety
  2. Squelch creativity
  3. Hinder productivity

No business leader is immune. From mid-level administrator to senior executive, all are afflicted by information they find pointless and stressful. Our research indicates that over 50% of the information executives touch on a daily basis is not relevant to their jobs. 

These men and women are responsible for the success of every part of their organizations, but they waste half of every workday processing useless information. Executives must seamlessly 

For the hard working executive, filtering relevant and non-relevant information can be overwhelming. You’re responsible for everything. Doesn’t that mean you need to know everything?

Yes, but that’s where 9Lenses comes in. White-collar workers everywhere are demanding better information management tools. For too long, businesses willing to invest in holistic enterprise management tools spent millions constructing internally customized software and wasted months, sometimes years, harvesting outdated information.

Now, 9Lense’s social discovery baseline allows visionary executives to organize vital data and act upon it in terms of the 9Lenses. Each Lens helps leaders to see how every aspect of their business affects every other part. A baseline can take as little as two weeks to execute and uses information already at your fingertips to assess your top opportunities and challenges. 

Imagine it! You don’t have to feel overwhelmed by floods of data. You don’t have to fall asleep desperately hoping you didn’t miss some vital piece of knowledge. You’ll have actionable items based on your stakeholder’s assessments of opportunities for improvement. You’ll finally know what you don’t know, and, more importantly, you’ll be able to do something about it!

Businesses that manage their information diligently will be more successful, improve employees happiness, and spike their bottom-lines.
