Efficiency is the heartbeat of success. DELTA helps you pinpoint areas where improvements can make a substantial impact on your bottom line. From streamlined processes to cost savings, we’ve got your journey to excellence covered.

You canโ€™t simply double the oven temperature to halve the baking time. And, while you can cover up a burnt crust with some icing, it won't get rid of that bitter taste.

What you need are quality ingredients, reliable tools โ€“ and a proven process to follow.

In other words, you need a range of disparate elements โ€“ all working together to create something thatโ€™s more valuable (and tastes better!) than the sum of its parts.

You canโ€™t simply throw more data analysts into the mix. Nor can you rely on dashboards that look pretty โ€“ but offer little practical value โ€“ to dictate your strategy.

You need a proven framework thatโ€™s been refined and designed for success.

Wouldnโ€™t it be nice if you could fix issues and boost productivity with the wave of a wand?

When applying a problem-solving framework, consider customizing the Lean Problem Solving canvas to align with the unique aspects of your business. Ensure comprehensive coverage by incorporating key areas such as Background, Problem Definition, Existing Alternatives, Solution Design, Key Impacts, Value Analysis, Goal Setting, Action Plan Development, Early Adopter Nomination, and Regular Review and Feedback.

How to best utilize Problem Solving Canvas?

To enhance the effectiveness of the tool, integrate complementary methodologies like 5-Why’s, PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act), Root Cause Analysis, and RACI (Responsible-Accountable-Consulted-Informed).

Are data products (like reports and dashboards) fueling your growth and driving your business? Or are they failing to gain traction?

If itโ€™s the latter, that doesnโ€™t necessarily mean that your dashboard is poorly designed. Or that you need to invest in (even more) cutting-edge technology.

Letโ€™s review your culture and projects holistically. Itโ€™s why I developed the CARR scorecard to help you re-examine how you think about processes and risks. So you can drive measurable outcomes in your business.

Use the scorecard to listen to the voice of data in your organisation. To make data-informed decisions, manage risks *proactively* and foster richer relationships.

Client Testimonial

As an organisation we often focus on delivering immediate support to those in need, however as a result of this, we sometimes loose focus on the need to review our current systems and identify opportunities for improvement. Through her extensive knowledge and guidance, Dr Fahimeh McGregor has supported our organisation to review our current systems landscape, identify opportunities for improvement and implement achievable plans of action that are strategic, collaborative and engaging for the entire organisation. I would recommend Dr Fahimeh McGregor to any organisation who wants to improve their systems, data utilisation and overall business intelligence in a manner that is engaging and purposeful to the outcomes of the organisation.

Implementation of technology and systems are critical components to establishing a new business. As a small construction company these implementations can become expensive and redundant. After using multiple cloud base systems and constant adjustment to our systems, we decided to work with a consultant. Dr. Fahimeh with Delta Informed Decisions provided the knowledge and direction to create a custom approach that allows for efficient long-term growth, data tracking, and good communication among team members. This was done with cost effective tools and good resources for continued learning.

I have had the tremendous pleasure of working with Fahimeh over the last two years or so on a number of inter-dependent business intelligence development projects where we needed far greater degrees of automation, reporting and repeatable processes.

Fahimeh was able to hone in on where our data collection and management strategies required improvement and has a great talent for being able to cut straight to the nub of core issues, visualise and then explain the necessary roadmaps to achieve their resolution.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the work we have done together so far and have confidence in her ability to continue to add value to our organisation when we are ready step to the next phase in our data journey.

We described to Fahimeh the challenges we were having with our manual, time-consuming, performance reporting and monitoring. Fahimeh helped us in different ways – streamlining the process, designing and implementation of Review tools and Reporting Dashboards, and training our team to drive solutions. She significantly improved our engagement with wider teams at the national level and improve the visibility of our financial reporting.

Fahimeh has helped our project team to manage our project controls effectively and meet standards and requirements. She taught us how to use our technology tools (SAP, Microsoft Suite) more efficiently and we achieved significantly better quality outcomes. Fahimeh designed and implemented unique templates suited to our needs, and then provided hands-on instruction to help us collect valuable data and deliver quality reports. This way, lots of time was saved and factual reports became accessible any time we needed them.

Two years ago, I got to know Fahimeh when she started leading our data visualisation and streamlining processes for performance reporting. She brought a new way of utilising data by sharing analytical knowledge which opened a whole new world for me. I am pleased that I am now doing her Data Competency course taking me to the next level. Even at the middle of the learning journey, I can easily see how itโ€™s changing my way of thinking and looking at data.

Client Testimonial

I met Fahimeh in 2019 when she was appointed to lead our business intelligence for the performance team. It has been fascinating to recognise how much time and effort could be saved allowing us to become more productive and proactive by having access to a more streamlined processes and automated reporting tools. Fahimeh has not only designed and developed visualisation products for us, but she also empowered the team to drive self-sufficiently through greater insights and understanding of the processes. I am very pleased that now she is offering her Data Competency training to organisations and I have had the privilege to attend her training course and learn how to manage and utilise data and analytics to benefit not only my role but also the business unit and our stakeholders.

Fahimeh assisted my teams and I with the delivery of the largest infrastructure project (at the time) in Auckland, Waterview Connection (Well-connected Alliance). She demonstrated the value of a research driven approach in real-world projects in a multi-dimensional way: through the use of technology solutions, reporting, monitoring and enhancement of the Lean construction practices. Working with Fahimeh was an initiative that has helped to continuously improve our collaboration and productivity by sharing insightful analysis with partners andย stakeholders alike. I look forward to working with Fahimeh again in the future.

Client Testimonial

It was a great opportunity to get to know Fahimeh in 2018 when she joined our project as an advisor – while mentoring me to manage my responsibilities using smarter and efficient approaches. Project control and financial management were new contexts to me. With the work Fahimeh has done in regards to creating a data strategy, development of an automated reporting tool as well as technology training (SAP, Microsoft Excel and Planview), I managed to collectively add value to the project by having a greater understanding of business context, data and systems.

I really like the way you highlight that dealing with data is no longer optional if we’re wanting a business to succeed. We must find ways of harnessing the power of the information available, but have people making those decisions based on that data. It’s so much easier for our human brains if we can have images that make sense of the data!

Fahimeh, I believe that you’re right that there is art in bringing data to life. Wellington City Council are doing some interesting things with visualisation to show the progress of the city over the last century and the overlay of pipes and utilities etc. Seeing the city in a new way is helping them understand and make decisions.
