How We Helped

We developed a phased approach to the project.

Phase I – Using Business Process AssessmentSM, valueideas documented all major core processes in the service delivery value chain and several hundred sub-processes for their current performance. We were assisted by internal process teams to document and collect performance data. We analyzed the data and developed an overall profile of the organization. We determined the Customer Value Index​SM to measure the value delivered from a customer standpoint based on the factual data gathered by the internal teams. The results of our analyses showed tremendous improvement potential and were shared with everyone in the organization.

Phase II – We learned from the best practices, concepts and models for service excellence both in and outside the industry. Using our Phase I results and its targets for improvement, and the best practices as input to the valuelab®, we redesigned the entire value chain with customers in the center.  We accomplished that by challenging about 70 executives and managers from across the organization and leveraging their collective genius to be the best in the business, during intense two day sessions.

Phase III – Using executionlabSM, we developed a fully-resourced execution plan and launched it with over a dozen simultaneous teams involving over 100 participants.

Phase IVChange Management to a new state of performance with multi-dimensional simultaneous changes including redesigned processes, reconfigured IT systems, performance measures, recognition & rewards systems
