An End-to-End engagement typically starts with an Assessment project that combines the Describe and Diagnose stages of our approach. This allows us to size the opportunity and to scope the Design and Deploy phases appropriately without a major up-front investment. More importantly, this effort will identify the true root causes of the pain the client is experiencing usually for the first time.
In some cases a successful intervention will require some knowledge and skill transfer to the client organization. End-to-End Analytics will work with our sponsors to create tailored Workshops that provide an effective combination of fundamental supply chain concepts and pragmatic implementation methods, often employing prototype spreadsheet tools.
The heart of our service offering is the Solution, which delivers a set of recommendations together with a comprehensive deployment plan and any relevant process design details, and decision tool prototypes. This is usually followed by a Deployment effort during which the process and systems changes are implemented within the organization. Solution and deployment efforts are often combined into a single project.
Our solution designs and deployments are typically clean and straightforward, so our clients are usually self-sufficient within a short amount of time. But we will provide whatever ongoing Support the client feels is appropriate to the situation.
