FlowState helps achieving 80% productivity levels

- Advertisment -

Fluid has now introduced an innovative managed service framework that will help organisations increase their productivity by targeting 80 percent on-time completion. FlowState (FS80) is a Productivity-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering that helps organisations achieve an enhanced level of purpose-driven productivity.

FlowState allows teams and individuals to adopt a standardised and optimised approach to tasks by utilising pre-defined processes, playbooks, templates and metrics, underpinned by an easy-to-use, intuitive collaboration system.

Fluid CEO Mark Kayser says only 40 – 50 percent of tasks are being completed on time. “Regardless of where the task originates, the important metric to track and improve upon is the percentage of tasks completed within the agreed time. These could include actions from meetings, project activities or team activities.”

“The benefits of this to both company and staff are clear to see, namely increased accountability, reduced waste and slippage on tasks, reduction in emails and meetings, asynchronous meetings, key metric tracking and management, removal of geographic constraints, and more,” he explains.

The FS80 mindset is being proactive, accountable and always putting the team first. It also prioritises outcomes over hours. Ultimately, more time and money saved, more productivity and accountability achieved, and a more aligned workforce.

By using FlowState, along with the increase in on-time task completion rates that it brings, there are a multitude of benefits to be achieved. These include removal of geographic constraints, conducive to remote working, tracking of key MIS/KPIs, reduction in overall meetings and most importantly, less late or cancelled projects.

Businesses first need to get everyone on the same page with culture, and then focus and drive execution and results. Breaking work down into achievable chunks is an art before it becomes a science for results-driven execution. Bringing a team along on the journey is crucial and building the right team culture is core to productive teamwork.

Kayser says instead of holding scripted feedback sessions, why not try Failure Feedback Sessions (FFS). “It’s a courageous session where you open up in front of the team and admit where you failed this week. At first this is enjoyable,  and then comes the feedback and advice; this is where the magic happens, where the team opens up and works to help each other – lock in the learnings from these sessions –  it’s important,” he adds.

FlowState improves visibility, increases accountability and puts more trust in the plan. It provides a more agile performance with reduced emails, the removal of meeting time-slot dependency, and offers a centralised audit trail for all delivered work.
