Integrating SOUL into Best Practice Applications to Address Achilles Heal

 

Current business applications display a fatal Achilles Heal: people-focused Key-Performance Indicators (KPIs). The most important asset in your company, being your people, and your technology falls short in supporting you and them.

 

Industry standard business applications are enhanced with SOUL based approaches in providing you practical, relevant analysis and reports about how to manage the experience, skills and motivation of your workforce. It allows you to view your organization with 3-D insights and objective knowledge. The video below describes these insights using our simple KPI 3-D measurement principles supporting your organization's productivity, efficiency and usability needs.

For years you have tried to "think outside the box." This was the box, and past best practice business applications fell short of helping you manage it. Instead, they left you to throw more money at a problem, or have you try their new and improved technology. Or, when their technology failed, you were left with bringing in experts, all in an unconscious effort to deal with the dimensions of this box. It was never about going outside the box, it was always about reshaping it to your needs.

The SOUL Difference:


Many popular best practice business applications neglect three important factors in their analysis:

(1) People being set up to succeed,
(2) People being able to handle the unexpected, and
(3) People being able to support each other when faced with severe challenges.

Best practice business applications have either limited or no metric focus on these people variables. And these variables make or break an organization’s ability to be successful. Our SOUL’s people-focused, unique architecture as applied to various business/best practice applications changes all of that!

 

  SOUL consists of measurement and problem solving techniques that are used by teams to naturally achieve desired business goals - turning your teams into employee superheroes.


Today, our analysis, workshop, services and specifically u2 Leadership Software incorporating SOUL metrics provide you with the tools to place your efforts where they will provide your business with the greatest value. Our methodology and technology will solve complex issues with a click of a button, like what motivations will help which employees to work more efficiently to provide greater quality or more productivity, allowing you to manage your box more effectively to grow your organization
.


In today's business climate, you can't afford to guess about the best investments for your business' limited resources. Catalyst Technologies' software provides you with immediate access to the metrics of leadership, access to best practices that stick and powerful analytical tools.

 

Eliminate "flavor of the month" best practice implementation!

 

You may be in jeopardy of turning a valuable business initiative into the "flavor of the month" because of the limitation your current business applications provide. That means you are in danger of losing your investment.

 

We have a straight forward metric approach and methodology that allows you to optimize any project or operational plan. The optimization is based on how easily your management and workforce can reshape the basic building block of your organization leadership success.

 

Once your organization gains visibility and control over the shape/dimensions of the box, all "best practice" technologies, methodologies and metrics become simpler and dramatically more powerful to use. We prove this fact over and over again. within all sizes of organizations. Our customers' ability to shape and reshape the "Growth Box"  unlocks the secrets to true organizational optimization.

 

Are you currently implementing business initiatives that are in jeopardy of being the "flavor of the month" in terms of methodologies used by your company this year? A simple way of knowing is by answering the following questions:

  • Are you implementing a business technology where the learning and growth of employees are integrated with the success of its use?
  • Is there positive motivation, per each individual involved, to continually use the business technology without applying constant pressure?
  • Does your new business technology cause your business culture to be more supportive of each other, creating greater loyalty and devotion within the organization?

If you answered "no" to any of these questions, you might be implementing your business technology in a way that will eventually lead to a “flavor of the month” mentality, where employees are just waiting for the new flavor to arrive and the old one to leave. Change is all about people. If you did answer "no" to two or more of the questions above, the odds are that you're working very hard to make positive change stick within your organization. If a workforce is resistant, even indirectly, their negative reaction can make it hard to gain full value. It wastes money, labor-hours and minimizes employee participation.

 

Our process, based on SOUL, allows you to avoid using “flavor of the month” implementations approach, saving your organization significant time and money. Please call to find out more about our process and learn about the signs of “flavor of the month” implementation approaches.

 

Nailing deadlines using technology is our specialty:

 

It goes back two decades ago. It started with a vision to give managers an edge to manage projects with greater knowledge, working smarter, not harder. We created a simple algorithm we call “Average Performance Range and Index” (APRI) that has advanced the work in the field of Statistical Process Control (SPC). This technology was built in the field to eliminate risk, gain cooperation, meet demands and increase productivity. There's no magic, only thought, practice and experience. When combined with SOUL, it provides a powerful catalyst to an organization's growth.

 

The final result was putting the proven APRI structure, combined with SOUL using our Alignment Technology, into  "smart" template "plug and play" approach to give managers greater knowledge and visibility into meeting deadlines reliably. The APRI mathematics has also been applied to a basic project management principle called Critical Path analysis. The critical path being that sequence of tasks where if one task was late, it would cause all the other tasks preceding it to be late, eventually causing a deadline to be missed.

 

The APRI structure, using the Alignment Technology, turned the Critical Path Method (CPM) of analysis, developed over 50 years ago, into the Critical Task Method (CTM) of analysis. The Critical Task Method focuses on what tasks are the most critical along the critical path of a project. Knowing what tasks to objectively focus on first gives a manager an APRI. Using the APRI and SOUL linked using our powerful Alignment Technology also gives a manager objective insight into assuring that the critical path was always reliably executed. This unique approach prepares a team to handle the unforeseen during task execution. Ensuring critical tasks along the critical path could be implemented reliably and having teams know how to handle the unforeseen gave any manager an decisive edge in nailing deadlines.

 

We kept developing and refining the Alignment Technology with APRI and SOUL to provide you with unprecedented visibility and control in reliably meeting deadlines. Combining SOUL with APRI, our greatest achievement was to integrate Quality of Life principles into the Critical Task Method algorithm. At that point, managers and teams were able to work together more effectively. We have proven that we are about providing your business and your employees with a service that will cause growth, health and abundance as an organizational whole.
