Reducing time to take action
Synonyms: Reducing surveillance lag
Reducing period between decision and action
Speeding up decision-taking
Description: Reducing the elapsed time between the actual necessity for taking action, and the moment when that necessity is perceived by management. This refers to non-real-time decision-making, and emphasizes the fact that many management decisions must be made in terms of knowledge of the system's status some time in the past, rather than as it is at the moment of the decision.
