What We Believe: Managing business processes creates superior results during periods of high growth.
Controlling Business Growth: How we solve the problem
Through the application of our Perigon Method of enterprise-wide mapping, BEM provides a truly unique and powerful approach to improving the performance of a business and controlling growth in many different ways.
The development and deployment of process and system maps in an integrated Enterprise Management System provides powerful best practices capability that delivers a valuable and sustainable investment in a company’s infrastructure. How Perigon is used to improve performance varies depending upon client objectives, but performance improvements can generally be organized through the business objectives: standardization of work, profit improvement, customer value enhancement, and risk mitigation.
BEM engages client teams to develop standard processes that deliver what customers want. Broken processes frustrate customers, cause money to be wasted on underperforming assets, and introduce unnecessary risk to the enterprise. Through BEM expertise, clients develop a set of internal best practices that build the capability to control growth. Clients then deploy standard processes across the enterprise that are defined, owned, managed, and followed for consistent execution.
