An organization’s greatest assets are its people and its products. However, having good products and good people are not enough to keep an organization competitive. The real competitive edge is often determined by the core processes an organization has in place. If your processes are bloated and inefficient it will impact your ability to deliver “value” to your customers in a timely and cost effective way. If your customers do not find “value” in the products and services you provide they will search for it elsewhere. Your past successes do not guarantee future success. Because we are so “busy” we often neglect one of the primary things that keeps us competitive; and the “provider of choice”; and that’s our processes!
Do your current processes enable you to deliver products and services to your customers faster, cheaper, better? Or are your current processes causing you to lose business to your competitors? Are your processes filled with value-added work that serves your customer’s needs or are they filled with non-value added steps and waste that cause you unnecessary time, cost and effort? This course will help you address those questions and many others that are critical to your on-going success in the marketplace.
