A career highlight
During a significant organizational restructuring within the department, necessitating the formation of a new sub-division, substantial disruptions in headcount planning and investigator allocation were encountered. To address these challenges, I developed a comprehensive Excel dashboard that was subsequently deployed on SharePoint. This solution provided managers and higher management with enhanced capabilities to efficiently plan headcount, resulting in real-time cost savings by optimizing the allocation of resources and reducing the need for overtime. Moreover, the implementation of this dashboard significantly improved task resolution and bolstered service level delivery within the newly established sub-division.
