For a huge global company operating in Marine business we have done a project to run and further adapt the standard process for ‘transfer of work’ on the special requirements of the industry the customer is working in.
The overall goal of the project was to check the existing standard process by process analysis backed up by real life projects to establish an adapted process map on the next matured level and reflecting the special requirements of the company and market. The new process and aligned resource plan should be streamlined and defined lean and smart.
Within the project we have analysed the process and detected weak points as unbalanced resource requirements or dependency rules between commercial and technical evaluation process. Blocking points have been eliminated and a reorganized process has been defined and established.
The new defined process has been validated by practical application and derived lessons learned cycles. At the end the process was less complex, less resource consuming and the user acceptance was given, because the adapted process has reflected real business needs. On the following picture you can see a schematic draft of the process.
The average lead time for such a project is 3 to 6 months depending on exiting process maturity level, required integration into different functions, training and roll-out requirements and complexity.
