AN INFORMATION BRIEF FOR EXECUTIVES

The Hidden Costs of the Status Quo

Business leaders often struggle to pinpoint the source and breadth of the waste in their organizations. Even when they are able to identify and quantify the hidden costs of inaction (“the status quo”), the process of implementing change can often be a mammoth task.

The consequences of ‘no action’ when it comes to re-engineering their business processes for many manufacturers, has a direct and immediate impact on the success—the survival of their business.

Read this information brief, and learn why manufacturing executives need to embark on an effective business process improvement initiative to measure the cost of the status quo, in order to reap several business benefits, including:
