Inter-Office Workflow Calibration

Inter-Office Workflow Calibration

Teams work­ing in dif­fer­ent loca­tions under local and dis­parate work­flows can detri­men­tal­ly impact com­mu­ni­ca­tion, col­lab­o­ra­tion, and the glob­al work­flow. Offices and work­groups must be ful­ly com­pat­i­ble with each oth­er, and ready to move projects smooth­ly from one step in the chain to the next.

A work­flow cal­i­bra­tion involves on-site obser­va­tion and analy­sis of all offices’ work­flows. The envi­ron­ment, pro­ce­dures, and per­son­nel are observed and ana­lyzed, and then cal­i­brat­ed into a cohe­sive, uni­fied work­flow free of local­ized pecu­liar­i­ties and inter-office col­lab­o­ra­tion stum­bling blocks. By the con­clu­sion of the cal­i­bra­tion, all work­groups will be using iden­ti­cal soft­ware ver­sions, flow process­es, and pro­ce­dures, enabling not only free com­mu­ni­ca­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion between offices, but also eas­i­er and more pre­dictable com­par­a­tive per­for­mance evaluation.
