I found this statement interesting: "However, Clootrack co-founder and CEO Shameel Abdulla said less than 20% of the suggestions the company makes get implemented."

It makes me wonder if the problem isn't necessarily with the audience but with the suggestions. Perhaps the data that they are based upon, or the algorithms themselves, or maybe there just are too many suggestions for an organization to absorb. Afterall, sometimes less is more.

The tendency to keep the status quo is a strong one. No wonder then that "less than 20% of the suggestions the company makes get implemented." It takes some strong "willpower" or at least leadership to keep moving forward sometimes when the evidence indicates changes are beneficial.

The follow-up is really important. What may look like aninitial discouraging result may look much better in 6 months- and visa versa.

Broadway, not only for recognition but to assist the user gets maximum use from your work. Who else knows more the full capabilities of your work other than you.

rbaz, so true. Often, we are too busy in the modern office grind to stop and appreciate a great project, a job well done --- or in the very least, to do the proper follow-up with the client/business to ensure that they are as satisfied as you are with the end result, to gain valuable feedback, and hopefully some commendation that you can frame and hang on your wall!

Following up is important. To often we generate fabulous work to pass on and don't follow up. We often move on to the next best thing. As a result that wonderful work goes unfulfilled to its fullest.

One action that I've found to be helpful is a careful review after a recommendation has been shelved - to really understand why. For this to work, you have to be past any tug-of-war. Tug-of-war is the stage where the business (for some unfathomable reason) doesn't want to implement your fabulous idea. Any discussions in this stage will still be somewhat less than forthright, as some parties may have an ax to grind.
