Program Summary:
Often organizations adapt a quick and infrequent management review process. This can be lengthy, cumbersome, and often results in reactive management and can prohibit a true adoption of quality and process. A well thought out schedule and plan for management review provides the ability to be proactive, capture valuable metrics, and understand trends without negatively impacting day-to-day responsibilities. A strong management review process will drive continual improvement, reduce inefficiencies, improve customer satisfaction, and ultimately increase revenue growth.
