Process Execution / Outsourcing
You want to operate some processes or improvement initiatives by an external partner? Whether it is a fitness check or comprehensive SWOT analysis, the operation of your review board, metrics or benchmarking evaluations, just get in touch to discuss your specific need so that you can focus on your core competencies while benefiting from our knowledge and capabilities.

We regularly inspect one or more of your endeavours (e.g. quarterly, related to milestones) for specified critical key points. In doing this we not only examine the formal criteria. The review in fact also deals with the content of the documents to comply with defined standards and sector-specific requirements.

We survey your projects individually or your project portfolio as a whole by using the process web provided within Process Execution Service. We not only do the numbers for the work products, but also examine to see whether they are really serving a purpose and are feasible. In cases of doubt we discuss the work products with the people responsible for them.
This includes the following metrics:
- Simple quantity of all work products according to the work product model.
- Derived metrics (ratios between the work products).
- Process metrics: Changes in the metrics over time.
- Product metrics: Measurement of all work products in an application, independent of the project.
The benchmarking service is a comparative, anonymous metric service, which compares its own metrics with the peers or with all the clients of PEDCO – Managed Process Services, and shows you where your organisation stands regarding process efficiency.
- Easy comparison with peers or competitors.
