Wizdom Consulting

Overview
Since 1986, we have been helping businesses and government improve the way they do business. Our team of experienced analysts (we call them Wizards) understand the challenges of balancing day-to-day operations while aggressively pursuing new opportunities and competitive business solutions.

Experience
Wizdom's consulting experience is diverse. Our clients have included major aerospace and automotive industry leaders, healthcare organizations, large corporations, small business, and major universities. We have helped clients in many areas, including enterprise architecture, BPR, (Business Process Reengineering), logistics, healthcare services management, information technology, finance and administration.

Results
Our clients have achieved dramatic results, such as 60% reduction in cost, 45% reductions in cycle time, and 45% reduction in process steps.


Methodology
Our outstanding results have been achieved by employing our MinervaTM methodology. Minerva is a Four Step Reengineering process that helps companies re-design and implement change. Minerva is a team approach, tailored to the needs of each client. Minerva is based on IDEF (Integrated DEFinition), the only modeling methodology covered by a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS), the same concept that guarantees us that our electric razors will work in all outlets in the United States. Here's how it works:

step 1 LEVEL ONE: Conduct a Strategic Assessment - list business goals, objectives, a cost/benefits estimate, and an outline of the overall plan for change.

step 2LEVEL TWO: Model and Analyze the "As-Is" - make a structured model of all of the functions of the client's processes as they are today. This step shows how business is actually performed, and the detailed steps that are taken to perform them. This also includes an analysis of the cost of those functions and the opportunities to reduce cost.

step 3LEVEL THREE: Model and Analyze the "To-Be" - develop a new structured model based on all the information gathered, that defines and refines the client's future operations. This model shows how the business and/or operations should work in the future, once change plans are implemented.

step 4LEVEL FOUR: Develop and Execute an Implementation Plan - this results in the design of strategic, financial and technical plans for the "To-Be" model which was designed in Level Three. This plan matches the determined business goals. Opportunities identified in Level One will be tested against the model developed in Level Three. Level Four also provides detailed group technology-based analysis of parts and products, equipment lists and layouts, identified training requirements, and cost/benefit scenarios for implementation.
