One approach that many successful businesses take to remain competitive and profitable is to periodically review and assess the alignment of their business. In particular, they check to make sure that their people, processes and technology are working well together and delivering as planned.

Checking the alignment of your business need not be a lengthy or costly process. Particularly when the scope and target deliverables are defined and confirmed in advance, the process can be effectively completed in as little as 6-8 weeks. The primary determinant of cost is typically the size and complexity of your organization.

Our Business Enterprise Review takes your organization through the following process:

  • Analyze current business dynamics in the context of your strategic direction and your particular marketplace
  • Perform a business strategy impact analysis
  • Define the data needed to drive the business
  • Confirm the internal alignment of people, processes and technology
  • Document high level areas of need with respect to:
    • Manual, poorly integrated processes
    • Required system functionality
    • Manual workarounds, other process bottlenecks and inefficiencies
    • Potential process changes and improvements given current market conditions

Your needs, risks and opportunity analysis are then delivered as:

  • Prioritized improvement opportunities
  • Documented and prioritized gaps:
    • Functional/process gaps
    • Information reporting gaps
    • Information system gaps
  • Risk documentation and definition
  • Prioritized approaches to address gaps and risks
  • Comparative benefit analysis for each option, including:
    • Operational efficiencies
    • Balance sheet impacts
    • Resource requirements
    • Time to market
