If you can systematize something, do it, document it, delegate it, train it and move on to the next thing that you can’t (yet) learn from an automated report! I’m serious. Transformational value will not come from a canned report, a regular monthly analysis or a quarterly business summary. A great deal of maintenance value will come from keeping a finger on an organization’s pulse, but innovation will come from somewhere else. Insights can come from unexpected or unpredictable sources, so variety is a great seed for innovative thinking, the routine is not.
