Kristine Coy-Foster on Goal Tracking [Podcast]


By Adam Turteltaub

Kristine Coy-Foster (LinkedIn), Senior Manager, Compliance & Employee Engagement at Vulcan, had a challenge many in compliance face: tracking all her to-dos, and then, once a to-do turned to done, tracking the accomplishment. It was important for her to be able to capture the challenges she faced, new ideas tested and processes developed.

Trying to keep it all straight in Outlook or Excel spreadsheets wasn’t enough. To solve the problem she invested the time to learn Smartsheet, a platform that primarily is for managing projects and automating processes. In it, she created workstreams, alerts, dashboards and more.

She also created categories for each of the functional areas she oversees and organized her to-dos accordingly.

The solution has worked well for her, but, she cautions, it does take a strong commitment to keeping everything up to date.
