– Business analysis
How well do you know the environment inside your organization from different dimensions? Have you ever examined the strengths and weaknesses of your organization?

We are ready to review your organization according to the BABOK guide and based on the analysis of business capabilities, to give you a big picture and help you with your strategic planning.
Business analysis is a set of processes and tasks that implements change in an organization by determining needs and recommending solutions that create value for stakeholders. Business analysis enables the organization to articulate the needs and rationale for an organizational change, as well as provide value-creating solutions. Business analysis is done based on different projects and programs in an organization. The plan may be strategic, tactical or operational. Business analysis may be done within the boundaries of a project or for the entire organization and includes the continuous improvement of the organization. It can be used to understand the current state, define the future state, and determine the activities required to move from the current state to the future state. In an organization where the business analysis system has been implemented correctly, the organization knows its current situation (including problems and opportunities) correctly and has a clear roadmap for solving problems and achieving opportunities.

– Business process Improvement management
How well are your organization’s processes designed? What are the current complications in this area? According to the maturity assessment method of the American Quality and Productivity Center, we at C.C.I can get a good understanding of your organizational process system and provide you with the things that need to be improved in the form of a valuable knowledge report.
No business can afford to stand still. Global competition and rapid innovation are raising the bar for organizations to continually develop new products, increase customer satisfaction, improve quality, and reduce costs. Every organization needs operational excellence.
In some cases, business leaders may know where they have opportunities for strategic improvements. In other cases, however, the task can be overwhelming, with business processes spanning multiple functions across multiple geographies. Where do you focus your business process improvement efforts to gain the greatest benefit with the least amount of effort?
Focused Approach to Business Process Management (BPM)
An exhaustive effort to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of all business processes is rarely justified. Our consulting methodology, rather, is to identify the areas of highest priority, with the greatest payback, and where the recommendations have the greatest likelihood of being implemented.
We do this with a broad-based data collection effort to prioritize the business processes most critical to organizational success and also in most need of improvement. For each selected process, our business process consultants then conduct a high-level business process framing exercise to define process boundaries, process owners and key actors, major steps, issues, and the vision for improvement. Our “six-pillar analysis” evaluates a broad set of process enablers: workflow, information systems, incentives, human resources, policies, and facilities. If the effort is warranted, we also map the processes in their “as-is” state.
Based on the level of improvement needed, our consultants then design the to-be processes. Process-specific redesign falls into three main categories:
Formalize the Process. For processes that perform at an acceptable level, it may be enough to simply formalize them through process modeling and process mapping, by documenting roles, responsibilities, major activities, and performance criteria, and then training and coaching process actors throughout the organization on the formalized process.
Improve the Process. Processes that are substandard in terms of cost, schedule, or quality may need optimization, but not wholesale process transformation. Here, our recommendations may be to eliminate waste, combine tasks, do activities in parallel, automate elements of the process, or apply industry best practices. The goal is reducing cycle time, improving quality, and optimizing costs.
Re-engineer the Process. Business processes that are beyond repair or show opportunity for breakthrough performance may require radical transformation through business process reengineering. Here, we facilitate breakthrough thinking and application of new technologies to achieve multiple times improvement in performance.
In implementing any major change initiative, it is also important to pay attention to the people side of change. Our consultants can also provide the expertise needed to develop the change management program, so that all process practitioners have the awareness, desire, knowledge, and skills needed for continuous improvement. Our change management framework also ensures that each major process has a process owner and process actors with defined roles, responsibilities, and process metrics.
Tools in Our Process Improvement Toolbox
Our consultants bring a variety of tools and methodologies for improving business processes, too numerous to list completely.
Our toolbox includes data-gathering tools, such as online surveys, interview questionnaires, and direct observation. We have an extensive portfolio of analysis tools such as process framing, value stream mapping, Ishikawa diagrams, root cause analysis, and Pareto analysis. We are especially fond of the Theory of Constraints, with its current and future reality tree and conflict-resolution diagramming, as well as lateral thinking for problem solving and finding breakthrough solutions.
For clients in the manufacturing, wholesale, and retail industries, our consultants are also skilled in lean manufacturing, lean six sigma, Kanban, kaizen, just-in-time, total quality management, and material flow optimization.
Not every process needs the same level of business process improvement. By analyzing and prioritizing your needs and focusing your efforts, you can achieve significant improvement in profitability and gain competitive advantage in the shortest time possible.
