Business Optimization

Business Optimization

a

Assesment

Your business operates because of the multiple processes you have put in place. Optimization of business operations depends on you and your team’s ability to create, implement and continually monitor your processes.

The first phase of my assessment serves to establish a set of common objectives and a common engagement understanding. By bringing the team together, discussing the scope, approach, and timeline, expectations are established and the vision solidified. Beginning with a common vision helps ensure participation and effective use of the team’s time.

The second phase of my assessment involves interacting with the people, processes and technological tools that are most familiar with the current business practices – both strengths and shortcomings. These interactions are an essential part of the review process to increase understanding of how things function and where enhancements may provide organizational benefit.
By incorporating the knowledge developed from the two prior phases, opportunities will be identified. These opportunities may range from simple, straightforward business process modifications to significant business system enhancements to establishing governance structures and system replacement.

Organizational Design

Designing major organizational changes is a complex and high-stakes process. The general rule is that structure should follow strategy, but it is often challenging to ignore the people and personalities that you see on a daily basis. For that reason, I have developed a systematic and objective organizational design process that ensures my clients create powerful organizations that truly enable strategy execution.

The best organization designs are co-created with key associates and cooperatives and tested under marketplace pressure with real-life scenarios to validate the design and build alignment for effective implementation.

I have developed a comprehensive framework to address our clients’ organizational design needs.

System Implementation

In this phase, the system is installed and made operational in the production environment after the system and users’ acceptance testing. Activities in this phase include efforts required for implementation including notification to end users, execution of training, data entry or conversion, and system monitoring. This phase continues until the production system is operating in accordance with the defined requirements and planning for sustainment has begun.
