The Main Goal of Any Department

Regardless of function, size, structure or industry, there are universal department goals that we see in every organization.

  • Provide a winning value proposition
  • Produce to customer specification
  • Deliver what's wanted on time
  • Create value that exceeds cost
  • Serve as a valuable partner
Perigon is the solution.

Common Department Process Problems

The Perigon Method provides a business architecture that is designed specifically for process-based definition, management, and improvement. This is an essential organizing principle for all high performing organizations, regardless of industry, company size, or business type.

Getting in the way of achieving these main departmental goals are common problems and opportunities. Department leaders often can’t answer these critical questions:

  • Who is the customer?
  • What do they want?
  • Do we meet their needs?
  • What quality do we provide?
  • How long does it take?
  • Who is responsible for what work?
  • How do decisions get made?
  • What does it cost?
  • Where do problems originate?
  • How do we solve problems?
