RESEARCH

Over the past 25 years, PRO has created the world’s largest knowledge-base of leading process templates across all industries and functional areas. Our knowledge-base allows our internal team partners to start with “the answer in sight” on every process improvement project, often reducing the analysis and design cycle by 75%.  Examples of PRO’s knowledge-base IP include:

  • Best Practices Workflows – to drive innovation, often adding a focus on growth
  • Benchmark Metrics – to create motivational stretch goals/KPI’s that combine ‘internal’ best demonstrated performance with external benchmarks
  • Improvement Opportunities – which tend to repeat themselves across companies and industries, thereby creating more immediate quick-hit ROI

Senior Executives Cite 5 Major Barriers to Capturing Benefits

“PRO interviewed scores of senior client executives that have experienced the three major eras of process improvement: Re-engineering 1985-1995; ERP/Year 2000;
Lean 6 Sigma to uncover lessons learned and best practices. What emerged were the major barriers to ROI, and PRO built its methodology to preempt these pitfalls.”

“…consistently applied tools are not necessary.”

PRO SOLUTION:
