Insight's Productivity Unique Differentiation
Quality as a result of the process output is a key function of Insight and the core element in the Productivity Model. Quality is inherently the value and usability of the process result, and, characterizes whether the process result meets the reasonable needs and expectations of the process customer.

Where "r" is required and "d" is delivered. And time is due date/time and/or start date/time.

Opportunity Value is key to productivity. The outcome of the process must have value to the process customer, that is, it's content must meet the reasonable needs and expectations, and be available when needed. "Achieved Opportunities" are those resultant activities that are made possible, or are at least made easier, because the work activity result was completed with the required level of quality. "Lost Opportunities" are consequences of process failures, such as a missed deadline, incomplete content, errors, and miscommunication of the process deliverable requirements.


Where Insight Boosts Your Productivity
Insight boosts productivity because it positively affects key areas in the productivity model which reduce costs, and, increase efficiency and quality.
Work Activity Result Quality - Insight improves work activity communication, information sharing, and collaboration thereby making it more efficient to deliver the required activity result, increasing the result quality, reducing error rates, and ensuring a timely delivery.
Deliverable Information - Insight ensures that all the information necessary to accomplish the activity is available, consistent, and current.
Management Costs - Insight reduces the cost of assigning and monitoring work activities, and, reduces the cost of activity based costing, budgeting, and planning.
Resource Costs - Insight ensures that all resources needed for a given work activity are identified, assigned when appropriate, and that the necessary information is available and shared.
Time and Budget Planning - Insight gives you historical data from past similar activities to show you what it took to accomplish the desired result.
Staff Skill Assignment - The quality of prior similar activities indicate, among other factors, the skills required to accomplish the task with the available deliverable input.
Communication of Needs and Goals - The usability of the delivered result is based on accurate and complete information from the customer about their needs, goals, and timeliness.
Risk Management - The consequences of process failures, such as a missed deadline, incomplete content, errors, and miscommunication of the process deliverable requirements yield lost opportunities which in business usually mean lost revenue or higher operating costs.


Insight's Return on Your Investment
