Business Assessment and Gap Analysis
Our team at OP X WEST will conduct a full Business Assessment which is a systematic process of evaluating various aspects of your organization to gain a comprehensive understanding of its current state. The assessment typically covers areas such as operations, performance, processes, strategies, and resources. It aims to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that can inform decision-making and improvement efforts.
Additionally, the OP X WEST team will conduct a Gap Analysis that will be used to compare the current state of your organization (or a particular process) to its desired future state. It involves identifying gaps or discrepancies between the two states, which can be in terms of performance, capabilities, resources, or any other relevant criteria. Gap analysis helps organizations determine what needs to be done to bridge these gaps and achieve your goals.
