Topic: Benefits of implementing PBI

Pre-PBI era:

– all about distributing Excel reports

– most of the time these Excel reports are bespoke and manual (due to ppl not familiar with Pivot tables and size limitations)

– hard to deliver a message – Excel not designed to do that

– BORING, slow, old-school


– what do we really need? important for Data structure

– what is key to the business? focus area(s)

– message to deliver? In line with global/regional/local expectations

– management buy-in to move away from manual reporting and create a company wide reporting structure

Going LIVE:

– training on PBI app

– training on being self-sufficient

– training on why we need this

– feedback –> improve

– SUPER EXCITING, fast, non-financial ppl are interested in numbers
