Process Review and Refinement
Through our Assessment Process process designed to identify opportunities for improvement, PVA will conduct a collaborative review of your business processes, identifying hidden opportunities for improvement.
PVA believes that all work processes, no matter what type, require analysis and have significant opportunities for improvement.
In order to identify opportunities for business process improvement, and to generate buy-in throughout the organization, PVA utilizes a visual approach to process analysis through value stream mapping.
Each work process is charted using live documents, starting with the steps and sub-steps in order to document and identify how the work takes place in the current environment.

Value Stream Mapping
The data and information for each step of the mapping process is gathered and the map is built with Managers and Supervisors input from their respective areas of responsibility. Work times, cycle times and processing times are identified for each activity and are validated through actual observations by Management in the workplace. These observations are critical to identifying operating problems and opportunities for improvement within the work activities and processes.
This collaborative approach between PVA, our client’s Management team and their employees provides the information that allows us to determine whether the issues and problems identified are process related, behavioral in nature, or the result of ineffective Management Operating Systems.
