Efficient business intelligence solutions begin with the clarification of an organization's goals and related strategic objectives. A diligent review of current business processes and practices follows to determine the availability and focus of the organizations resources in the pursuit of their stated goals and objectives. From here we develop performance management solutions to communicate and measure operating performance against stated goals, adjust and compensate for changes required of or by the organization, and ultimately achieve the desired outcome.
To this end, we provide value and support through the following advisory services employing the Strategic Benchmarking for Value (SBV) methodology to establish:
Clarification of organizational goals and strategic objectives along with a review of current organizational resources available to deliver on them;
Identification of the "best-fit", best practices methodologies to translate the strategy into an achievable operating plan;
Development of a budgeting and planning solution that incorporates performance management measures focused on strategic objectives across all organizational levels;
Selection of the appropriate business intelligence applications and tools necessary to support the performance management process; and
Implementation support in delivering the solution on a timely, budget-conscious, schedule.
