The McConnell & Jones Operational Assessment Process
Employee Surveys and Interviews
Confidential employee surveys and one-on-one interviews are performed to get a better understanding of the specific processes that take place on a day-to-day basis within the organization.
A trained team from McConnell & Jones will perform direct observation in order to understand the realities of the office during the course of a typical business day. Along with the employee surveys and interviews, onsite observation serves to identify the areas within the business that are in need of improvement.
Once our team has determined which areas of the business are in the most need of process improvement, we integrate all the data collected through the surveys, interviews and observation in order to comprehensively analyze the current business process and determine what actions need to be taken improve business processes (i.e. minimize delays, maximize profit, etc.). Additionally, we analyze the current best practices relating to the organization’s specific industry and identify gaps in the organizations related to these practices (processes, compliance, services, etc.).
Improvement Strategy Report
Following the Operational Assessment, the organization will receive our improvement strategy report, which will detail our recommendations for business and process improvement. Our overall strategy seeks to improve the quality, profitability, and effectiveness of the business processes.
