The Status Quo
Imagine that the head of your agency asked you to prepare an emergency report for him/her on resource management and contingency planning. They wanted to know all of the ‘essential’ or ‘mission-critical’ agency employees over 60 years of age who were located in a high-risk area for COVID-19 and may be even more susceptible based on race/ethnicity, limited workspace, and population density. What would it take to prepare that report and how much time would you need? Chances are that information exists in a database and/or spreadsheet but would require many hours and data specialists to analyze and compile into a clear concise report.
We’re assuming that you came through on this request with ‘flying colors’ but not without headaches. Then come the follow-on questions such as, “Now group these employees according to occupation role, program areas, the likely impact on the agency’s ability to carry out its mission, separate them by state, and how the agency might be able to utilize resource allocation by pulling similar functional roles from low-risk COVID-19 areas and from other programs in order to compensate.” Sound familiar? Now imagine being able to type these questions into a search bar to get immediate results. This is the power of ThoughtSpot.
