Management Roadblocks


A survey released by Attunity and London-based research firm Loudhouse reveals startling results concerning senior management's effectiveness in the workplace, which in turn imply integration needs that should be addressed by communications professionals. The survey sampled senior management of 200 U.S. and 200 U.K. commercial corporations with over 500 employees. Among the results:
  • 52% of surveyed managers think that enabling a collaborative workplace and more effective knowledge-sharing would create a competitive advantage;
  • Less than 25% of companies shared learning resources or cross-departmental workgroups to improve information sharing;
  • Nearly 33% reported frustration with the lack of collaboration in their company;
  • 52% complain about having insufficient time to focus on key issues when asked to select their top three challenges/frustrations;
  • 50% of managers think they spend more time than they should handling information. (U.S. managers spend an average of 12 hours per week gathering, collating and massaging data as opposed to analyzing it and acting on it);
  • 81% of respondents said that working priorities often change throughout the course of the week; and,
  • 46% complain about being reactive, not proactive.
