Watch This - the Boss
challenges Bill to Prove It. . .
"So, Bill, what's this?!" Bill's boss' finger
jabs the screen.
Thats my Daily Action Dashboard.
and what about this? David's finger
zeros in on the dashboard's Relationship Central.
"That's Relationship Central, boss. It's where ResultsManager
sweeps up into one place everything my direct reports owe me and
everything I owe them."
"What do I need that for, Bill? I have Outlook and I
have a MindManager map that I to add that sort of thing to."
Thats great boss. However, I've seen your map
and its getting a bit large side.
You make your point Bill, I do use filters, and I have
broken my huge map into several smaller ones, but I still have
trouble remembering where I put my stuff! Why dont you show
me how this thing works, for you?
Id be happy to, David - let's start with an overview
of my Daily Action Dashboard.
David interrupts. It looks a bit complicated to me!
I suppose it could do the first time you see it,
Bill replied. Look, this section here contains my deadlines,
the stuff I must do today. And this section shows other things
that I can do today if I have the time. Let's skip past the my
committed projects needing next actions section just for
now, as I'd like to show you my favorite part of the dashboard
- Relationship Central. Bill started showing him how
convenient Relationship Central is and how with just a glance,
you can be on top of everything your team members are responsible
for on daily, tactical and strategic levels. Look here,
I can see exactly what I'm waiting for Roy Davies to do for me.
And just beneath that I can see what I owe and what I'm waiting
for from Tara. Bottom-line," Bill concluded, "..if
it's important enough for me to track, communicate and follow-up
on, then it's here in Relationship Central."
"Well, I've been watching your team, Bill, and so far
I've seen them produce some great results.
"Thanks David, that's ResultsManager at work. And that's
just me using it. Imagine what we could accomplish with the entire
team using it.."
"Yeah, maybe. But the VP is cracking down on all of us
because of previous software purchases that don't get implemented.
We already have a department license for MindManager."
Bill explained how MindManager, while a great product, still
forces project managers to manually filter the maps according
to date or priority. It doesn't do simple things like sweeping
up overdue project elements and plopping them into a dashboard
with a big red alarm bell next to it.
Also, when you only use MindManager, you have to memorize where
all the project maps are located and which action items are located
in which maps. With ResultsManager you're able to survey the entire
realm of all your projects, according to whats most important
to you. And it does so simply, easily and quickly. ResultsManager
sweeps up everything in all your maps and filters according to
your criteria - automatically. Now, MindManager's static information
maps are transformed into dynamic, strategic working documents
which can be updated and amended throughout the entire span of
Watch this, David. If I click on one of these little
icons on a topic in a dashboard, ResultsManager takes me straight
to the appropriate topic in the project map. This enables me to
see the full context of the action I need to perform, which can
be very helpful.
Wow, that is impressive admitted David, who
went on to grudgingly reiterate that he's been manually filtering
his maps and he often didn't do it because of all the steps he
had to go through.
"David, that's exactly why we need ResultsManager. Because
you're not the only one who's doing it the hard way. You've already
noticed improvement in my team's performance. And that's just
with me using ResultsManager. Just imagine what could happen if
everyone on my team had it!" He could see the boss mulling
it over. "Here's my suggestion. Dont make the decision
to buy just yet. Give me the approval for all of us to download
the free trial of ResultsManager. Here
- why not go to Gyronix and download the trial yourself?"

Two days later, the boss catches Bill in the hallway, telling
him how much the ResultsManager tutorials are helping out. 'But,"
he says. "I dont want to drag this out a long time.
I want to get proficient now." Bill assures David that
the Gyronix System doesn't take long to learn and that the Bronze
Module is the first step designed to get new users quickly
on their feet by using ResultsManager on an actual project. PLUS
