SPVS Consultancy will help to resolve it, provide solutions and deliver a return on investments. This will be done independent, integer and innovative with a structured approach via an unique developed i³-formula:

  • Insight: dashboard insight (via statistics, reports, KPIs) will actually indicate where you stand on path A -> to B.
  • Improve: making optimal use of the people & resources (minimum waste / variation) so that customers get reliable services / goods with the expected added value. Here communication, knowledge sharing and teamwork will be essential, with creative solutions resulting in better products and services.
  • Integrate: changes / projects are more effective if attention is paid to: Process & Human & System, where interactions for a long-term and sustainable solution are important.

 With a win-win and positive mindset, the challenges will be overcome by applying known best practises methods and tools (LEAN, SixSigma, etc.) and see more info under About.
