“Identifying gaps and inefficiencies in an organization’s operations that hinder competitiveness in today’s global market.”
Staying competitive in our international climate is increasingly challenging for businesses. Inefficiencies and lack of innovation are two of the main things holding back firms, and can often mean the difference between success and failure. Our Productivity Assessment Initiative is not the end-all solution, but it is a very cost-effective way to help you identify and start to take your business down the right path towards innovation, efficiency and competitiveness.
The Productivity Assessment Initiative will examine ten different areas of your operations, including Vision, Strategy and Leadership, Organizational Structure & Culture, and Operational Processes and Workflow. It will help identify gaps and issues that affect organizational efficiencies, competitiveness and ultimately your bottom line.
Based on the results of this assessment PIC can provide further support to develop an innovative plan to increase your productivity and address identified weaknesses. Through our services and funding, the Productivity & Innovation Centre (PIC) aims to help identify these gaps and facilitate relevant improvements.
