>Before determining where we need to go, we need to determine where we stand. We draw from and employ a variety of techniques from Lean Manufacturing, SCRUM, Six Sigma (DMAIC, SIPOC, etc.) and CMC’s SWOT-Plus Analysis to identify the critical issues. By evaluating the overall effectiveness of operations we are able to identify means to enhance productivity and performance. We take pride in our ability to deliver a thorough analysis in keeping with the expectations of our clients.
Drawing on our own operational experiences, our analyses seek to identify the root cause(s) of any problem. Only then do we develop solutions that reflect each client’s capacity for implementation.
Our approach results in an understanding of the core issues in the functional areas of an enterprise. Typical functional areas include Finance, Human Resources, Operations, Marketing, Information Technology and Strategic Planning. This discussion leads to potential go-forward strategies aligned with insights gained through the diagnostics process. Using a combination of horizontal and vertical causal analyses, we bore down to reveal the root cause(s) of problems. This drives discussion toward a prioritized summary of key factors and identifies ‘what needs to be addressed’ to bring about meaningful implementation and measurable results.
At ReThink Inc. we’re well-known for our Reality Checks. Halfway through the process clients often wonder why we’re double-checking everywhere. This is part of the techniques that ensure we’re driving towards the right implementation plan to get the targeted result.
