BSI's Business Advisory and Implementation services are focused on guiding organizations through value chain optimization and are comprised of two key areas of expertise that go hand-in-hand: the Advisory or Strategic Planning phase, and the Business Excellence Implementation phase.
The first phase, Strategic Planning, involves assessing a client's current operations, defining the client's specifics needs and planning the appropriate strategies to dramatically improve the client's value chain performance. In the second phase, Business Excellence Implementation, BSI's Experts take a hands-on approach to implementing the agreed upon plan and its strategies, ensuring that optimal results are achieved.
Together the Strategic Planning and Business Excellence Implementation phases provide a complete solution for dramatically improving value chain performance.
In the Strategic Planning phase, BSI's Experts begin the assessment process by thoroughly evaluating the client's business in an integrated and holistic fashion. We look at all aspects of the value chain, from product development to distribution. This evaluation process may include obtaining feedback from the client's customers through our InfoQuest® Business Process Review. Simultaneously, we conduct a Business Performance Assessment.
