The PI-21 Philosophy

About Us Photo Our philosophy to process improvement is to:

- Empower business success through performance improvements – not change for the sake of change
- Ensure that process management is aligned with the strategic direction of the organization

Process improvement focuses on performance improvement and return on investment and must be integrated into the business organizational culture

W. Edward Deming once said:
“In God we trust, all others bring Data.”

All process measures must be tied to business objectives and not just for the sake of “bringing data”

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will do”
-- Lao Zi

“If you don’t know where you are, a map won’t help”
-– Watts S. Humphrey

Here at PI-21, we live by these bits of wisdom. We focus our clients on determining where they really want to go and not just on chasing a rating or registration. We believe that it is important to focus on improving the performance of the business through the incorporation of existing business practices with industry best practices. 

In order to accomplish this, it is important to set true business objectives for the process improvement program instead of setting the sights on just the rating or registration. Once the business goals are set for true performance improvements, it is critical to determine where the existing business practices are against those goals. This allows the organization to start with a clear picture of where they are and then set the steps in motion to achieve the performance improvements in a realistic timeframe.
