Short-term development planning
Processes in a controlled manner - and adds value immediately

A development plan for the company's operations brings more efficiency and productivity in just a month.

Based on the survey, we make a proposal for the development of processes and methods. The task analysis has provided an accurate picture of how resources are currently being used. Staff gain a better understanding of the different processes and identify the importance of their own role and job description as part of the process. In this way, the utilization of resources becomes more efficient immediately. The measures do not require investment, but increase efficiency.

For example, all packaging processes, shelving, collection and loading can be the subject of short-term development in a warehouse and dispatch center. By developing processes, operations become more efficient quickly and time savings are generated, which enables additional volume and growth.

We find out the most efficient process models

Work instructions for the various stages of the processes are reported and communicated to staff in a way that is easy for them to adopt. Videos and written instructions are often helpful here. The operations thus develop in a consistent manner in a new direction and the induction of new persons proceeds seamlessly and quickly.

Concrete added value that shows up quickly:

  • The turnaround time for various functions is shortened
  • You will achieve more with current resources
  • Enables planned growth
  • Harmonizes operations and speeds up orientation
