IN THIS CHAPTER YOU'LL LEARN
- How to translate data into usable information.
- How to derive concrete conclusions and recommendations from this information.
Before, during and after your sea journey, you collected lots of information: The passengers and crew provided feedback, and you have your own impressions as well. Now it’s time to analyze and evaluate it all, ideally as a team. Did you reach your goal? Did the journey go as planned? Did the passengers enjoy the trip? Were there any unexpected developments, and if so, why? And what might be the consequences for the next voyage? In the next step, the task is thus to transform the data into useful information, from which you can learn, and which you can use for impact-oriented project management.
Depending on your focus of interest and the quantity and quality of the data, the analysis can be a very challenging process. However, we won’t get into that yet. Rather, we want to provide practical tips for daily project operations that will help you quickly obtain useful findings. In just four steps, you can draw interesting conclusions of interest out of a mountain of information.
However, we must first clarify when it’s advantageous to evaluate, and who should be responsible for this task.
