    11. 11. What’s wrong with this picture?
    12. 12. Reporting Can Not Keep Up…
    13. 13. Here are this months reports Obsolete by time viewed, no shared observations, need social networking wrapped around information analysis
    14. 14. Archiving? Notations? Relevence? Context? What about SARBOX?
    15. 15. How would a 10 yr old want info? Tip 1: Eliminate Paper (as much as possible), you are in content Business – make data interactive, self navigating Davenport: “Kill the spreadsheet sprawl… 20% errors”
    16. 16. You Are Too Popular Message to business analysts – You Are in Information Publishing Business. Provide decision data/information sets, key metrics and observations in a way that end users can interact and share
    17. 17. I need this back for a meeting in two hours Forget Cycle Time – Foster Interaction and Conclusions. Drive to a Decision
