This workshop will provide you with a hands-on introduction to Ceptara’s 5-steps to Organizational Excellence model:

5-Steps for Organizational Excellence

Step 1 – Strategic Alignment
Using the organization’s strategy as the blueprint, Ceptara facilitates goal deployment aligning the people, systems and processes necessary to achieve the desired outcomes. 

Step 2 – Build the System
Ceptara defines an end to end process architecture, creates business system documentation (policies, processes, metrics, work instructions), and trains employees in process management. 

Step 3 – Measure for Success
Using business drivers and customer drivers (identified in step 1), a balanced scorecard is created to facilitate management by metrics.  Facts and data are used to drive daily operational decisions and identify areas of concern. 

Step 4 – Continuous Improvement
Based on strategic need (1) and performance (3), business processes are evaluated, prioritized and improved using Lean Six Sigma (LSS) tools and techniques. 

Step 5 – Sustain the Momentum
Ceptara assures the organization is prepared for and embraces change through internal communication programs and skills development in Lean Six Sigma to drive organizational momentum for achieving excellence.
