What's a Signal?

Recall the last time you watched a surgery on TV. Before it began, the surgical staff hooked up a heart monitor to visually show the patient's pulse. A few minutes later the surgeon started the procedure and then all of a sudden the patient's heart rate crashed. Alarms started chirping and the monitor showed the patient's heartbeat as a flat line. With this signal, the surgeon immediately started working on the new problem. Once the problem was resolved, the surgeon went back to performing the surgery.

The alarms were the signal the surgeon needed to stop what they were doing and work on a new problem.

Signals in your business are no different. With the correct signals and action plans in place, your employees will know when to address new problems and have an action plan to start solving them.

3 Steps To Follow


You know your business better than anyone. Before you create a signal determine the criteria for a successful outcome. Then, start monitoring the data at a low enough level and use the abnormal behavior in your data as a signal to take action.


Chart your data to visually see the difference between normal and abnormal behavior.

Take Action

Develop an action plan around each signal.
