Over the last few months I have posted numerous posts about staffing matrixes. The main point was to not over analyze or get so caught up in the different stats and matrixes that you forget the who, what , when , how and why of the numbers. Well there is another potential problem with having too many matrixes that is “Analysis Paralysis”. Meaning you have so much info that you have no clue were to start. Worse the info contradicts each other. Remember stats and numbers can be made to show whatever you want. For every stat that shows a problem there is one showing there is not. When you get so immersed in matrixes, and stats that you are not sure what to do you have essential entered a states of paralysis, and you end of stuck. Hence why I always say simple is better. Utilizing simple matrixes designed to only find the most important stats and then finding out the who, what , when , how and why of the numbers, helps you to steer clear of “Analysis Paralysis”.
