Not meant to be a dig, but if a co doesn't take it seriously one of the following pertains: Performance isn't important to the business. He isn't a high level exec. He doesn't understand your report. I think that's the most likely order. Have you tried asking him why action doesn't happen on the reports, after all they pay you too much to treat you as a garbage generator.

I also provide performance information to my VP on a weekly basis and all other high level execs on a quarterly basis but no one except my VP seems to take it seriously. That's the boat I'm in right now and it seems to have a really big hole that is leaking more day by day. -- Sandy Transzap, Inc.
