We are several years into our Six Sigma program, with many projects underway, so we need a product which helps us get the most from our investment today. But it is also important that we have a solution which equips us for the long term, and which we can use across our divisions. i-nexus has the capability to help us get to the next level.
We originally chose i-nexus based on its Project Management capabilities, but its capability to support Goal Deployment, other methodologies, ideas generation and global reach make it doubly valuable to our future aspirations.
Ralph Schnackenberg, Leader, Management Innovation Office
We examined all the vendors in the market and found that i-nexus had the clearest vision for the evolution of our Lean Six Sigma initiative into a program that truly supported the execution of strategy and the achievement of our long term business goals.
George Patterson, Global Head of IQP
Deployment of i-nexus began in December 2007. The first site to get access to the new software was Dresser Waukesha our Engine manufacturing facility at Waukesha, WI. Project leaders in the OPEX Group were trained by i-nexus and the inventory of projects is being captured into the system. i-nexus was an instant hit! Who wouldn't love it when the software that manages your project also writes your presentation and progress reports and mails them to the stockholders. The system brings big advantages for deployment leaders as well. Not only do they get automatic reports, but they also find it much easier to ensure that any changes to guidelines and methodologies are delivered to the desktop of project leaders. Projects at Dresser Waukesha are now linked to operational KPI's (Key Performance Indicators) using a score card and metric inside i-nexus.
Of course the execution of corporate wide strategy requires not only the downward cascade of goals, but also the upward aggregation of achievement. As i-nexus Senior Account Manager, Jan Freyburgher says, "If you're setting out to achieve five different things to accomplish one higher level goal, you have to have a way of measuring how progress on those five underlying goals are moving you towards the overall goal so that you can take remedial action". i-nexus takes care of this upward aggregation of performance. When configuration is complete, a senior manager will be able to sit down at their laptop anywhere in the world, log into their i-nexus system, and see how their division is performing against their goals on a simple traffic light system. Further, they will be able to drill down into the underlying goals to find out which of their subordinates need assistance, and which have already launched corrective actions. In Jan Freyburgher's words,"It's far reaching and sits on the leading edge of how companies view the execution of strategy in today's business environment. We know it's going to be a big success".
Jose Solero, OPEX Program Leader
The particular strengths of i-nexus are its ability to provide real-time data on projects, including recorded financial benefits, as well as access for users to examples of best practice.
With 2,000 improvement projects of various sizes running across ALSTOM worldwide, we needed a tool which would be flexible enough to support multiple methodologies, scaleable enough to support many thousands of users and capable enough to meet our needs for a single project portfolio and performance management system. Since deployment, i-nexus has helped us drive significant additional benefits from our Lean Six Sigma program.
John Baltay, Director, Performance Management
Cyta chose i-nexus to support the development of a new approach to its Performance Management mechanism. With i-nexus, the decision-making process was facilitated, as i-nexus has a real time mechanism that provides data at any given moment at every level. It enables our performance management review cycle to become more effective and transparent.
Photios Savvides, CEO
With i-nexus Ascometal is able to manage many improvement programs with different complexities and requirements in one single tool, to provide and share real time data from several hundred project contributors and to see continuously the link between projects, performance metrics and project savings / costs.
i-nexus Quick Projects has helped and enabled us to end our spreadsheet hell in Ascometal. Simple and easy to use enough that individual project managers are happy to use as an alternative to Excel, Quick Projects has helped us drive faster execution right across our portfolio over 2000 projects including continuous improvement, audit environment, procurement, safety and sales projects.
Pascal Fromonot, Head Investments and Continuous Improvement Coordination
The introduction of i-nexus Business Execution software to Nycomed’s Operational Excellence deployment program at Linz has enabled us to drive project delivery and execution of the Nycomed Strategy. Not only do we have more visibility of KPI performance across the organization, but our local projects – particularly those relating to Idea Management – are now more structured with bespoke templates for managing the internal process.
Dirk Konz, Plant Director,
Nycomed Austria GmbH
One of the main benefits that i-nexus software has brought to Novartis has undoubtedly been its high level of flexibility. Due to the modular nature of the software, we are now able to quickly and easily promote projects from Quick Projects to Full Projects whilst being confident that the reporting will continue to grow and expand with the changing scope of each project.
i-nexus has dramatically enhanced our ability to tightly manage capital expenditure projects using the Capital Expenditure Management Reporting Tool which facilitates more accurate financial forecasting. We look forward to seeing how i-nexus can be rolled out across the organization to deliver additional improvement benefits, particularly with regards to carbon reduction reporting.
Marcel Staudt, Head of Project Management
