You need a new approach because your world is changing. Your suppliers, your customers, your competitors, your staff, the public that you serve are constantly evolving. Expectations are changing and technology is accelerating this evolution.

Operational and competitive landscapes are changing at a pace never before experienced requiring organizations to readjust priorities and adapt to an evolving external environment. At the corporate level, competition is fierce and entire categories are being redefined by technology. At the public sector level, service expectations are increasing without the necessary funding to meet these expectations.

Our process guides you from the initial discovery of change drivers to organizational diagnostics, and ultimately the use of custom frameworks to not only develop but implement winning strategy.
Changing business and operating environments render old business processes inefficient and costly over time. New tools are available to improve performance, but the heart of performance is business process. Process design helps organizations equip themselves to deliver service today and in the future by creating flexible and efficient business processes.
Cascadia’s process design involves a comprehensive review of current workflows followed by a process redesign in performed in close collaboration with relevant stakeholders throughout the organization. Our custom methodology helps businesses improve efficiency by taking an end-to-end perspective that considers the entire process and more importantly the people that deliver these processes.
Supply chain improvements
Supply chains are becoming increasingly inter-related, increasingly global, and increasingly complex. An efficient supply chain allows organizations to free up capital for higher value deployment elsewhere.
Cascadia supports clients across a broad range of industries to improve their supply chains and free up stranded capital. This involves a current state reviews, modeling what-if scenarios, optimizing inventory around confidence intervals, and option analysis to reduce supply chain related risks.
Decision support &
Executives regularly face key decisions that have lasting implications but do not always have the time or resources to exhaustively research or carefully analyze the option set available to them. Similarly, being focused on their own operations, organizations rarely look outward to better understand how comparable organizations are structured, the tools they use, and the outcomes they experience.
Cascadia supports our clients by dedicating the resources necessary to fully understand the implications of decision options available from a range of perspectives recognizing impacted stakeholders as well as quantitative and qualitative impacts.
