Productivity and Operational Improvements
You can't manage Productivity if you don't measure it!
Building a sustainable business in the global market means matching and improving on the performance of the world's best. Best practice organisations recognise the need to develop effective measurement systems to assess their competitive position, manage their own product-service processes, and drive continuous improvement.
These organisations have found that a measurement system is most effective when it has been customised to the organisation's needs and provides feedback on performance to all employees.
EQAS can help develop qualitative and quantitative indicators that can be used covering areas such as customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, cost, quality, timelines, waste, errors, productivity, output, and financial performance.
Benchmark your performance to improve productivity and competitiveness
Benchmarking, which is an objective, ongoing search for best practices and processes, is an essential tool that EQAS uses with any organisation committed to achieving world class standards of performance.
Those organisations which most successfully use benchmarking have a systematic process which is integrated with other initiatives to improve productivity and competitiveness. Essential features of such a process include; involving employees at all levels; identifying, understanding and benchmarking key business processes; selecting suitable partners - not necessarily in the same industry, and carefully adapting identified best practices or approaches into the organisation.
