Cicero works hard with strategic intuition and hard data to help companies rise to the top. The services we provide are sure to lift any segment or division of a company to optimal performance. At the core of our performance improvement services is data analytics. We utilize internal and external data to identify inefficiencies and develop a strategic plan to implement change.
Supply Chain Management
Companies at times can find themselves stuck in situations where the supply chain isn’t operating at peak performance. Cicero’s advantage comes from in-depth knowledge of managing supply chains to reduce cost and increase efficiency. We join with companies to analyze weak links in supply chains and turn those into operational advantages that will increase company profit in the short- and long-run. We ensure that the supply chain is helping our clients meet their goals through simplified and streamlined processes.
Business Process Redesign
An optimized business process will lead to an increased quality of customer interaction; which will lead to higher customer satisfaction which will eventually lead to increased revenue. For this reason it is essential to create an efficient and effective business process. At Cicero, we help our clients reach that level of optimization through process redesign if needed. We begin by mapping out the process in meticulous detail to get the full view. We then work closely with our clients to identify key processes and begin a deeper dive into how to create efficiencies. Through in-depth interviews, surveys and other means of data collection we determine ways to eliminate waste and automate where possible.
Lean Six Sigma
The Cicero Team has an extensive background in Lean Six Sigma implementation to improve manufacturing efficiency and quality. However, we utilize these principles to not only help our manufacturing clients but also our clients across all spans of industries. We look to decrease the amount of waste, whether that be time or physical resources, and we look to reduce the amount of errors that occur in a business process. We quickly diagnose the areas of improvement and map out plans for change implementation.
We look to specifically implement Lean Six Sigma ideals into our services we offer manufacturers. We understand that these operations must maintain a high standard of quality while at the same time reduce costs. We look to simplify product lines and product design where possible. We also help optimize the scheduling and sourcing to allow the full potential to be reached. We know that each company has different needs and each strategy is calculated to help individual companies answer questions that reduce costs and increase quality.
