How does it work?

Service delivery is using a structured workshop approach where collaboration between companies is at the core to deliver innovative productivity improvement.

There are three programme phases:

  1. Map current value streams and key processes.
  2. Benchmark existing business processes to compare with best practice.
  3. Improve processes by developing and driving an action plan with a regular check-in.
