Strategic Deployment

Business Process Management System (BPMS)

This system facilitates the executive and champion team to develop a strategic, customer focused deployment across functional areas and business processes. Following identification and review of key customer strategic measures and performance gaps, projects are rolled out and results are measured: BPMS creates a strategic long-term structured approach proven to create or restart the most effective deployment.

Executive Training

The Executive Workshop is focused on linking the business strategic plan to the business focus areas. This focused workshop will take the leadership team through a process to transfer the corporate business strategy and key competitive gaps into project clusters. The champions will then convert these into actual projects. The Executive session facilitates the alignment of the projects with metrics that are important to meeting the business strategy and objectives.

Discovery Assessments

Discovery Assessments provide a focused, on-site, working review of product designs and/or process performance. For processes, a team completes a process map and metric review to identify performance gaps, projects, and benefits. In the case of design, a team does an assessment of product performance, warranty items, reliability performance, any available marketing projections or competitive data, and the design process itself to identify strategic improvement opportunities
