Gets the balance right between 'effort in' and 'value out'

Gets the balance right between "effort in" and "value out"

i-nexus ensures that you only need to put just enough data in to get meaningful information out. It doesn’t make sense, for example, to model resource utilization on Operational Excellence projects at anything other than a rough cut level. This approach enables deployment leaders to rapidly spot under-utilized Lean Six Sigma trained resources and ensure that they have projects to work on, or to identify the resources that are likely to be struggling due to the number of projects they have been asked to get directly involved in supporting.

You can start simple and add sophistication only when and where you need it

In addition to the more traditional Gantt Chart style interface for managing projects, i-nexus offers a spreadsheet style (quick project) interface for the tracking of simple or short duration actions. This, combined with the ability to import from MS Excel project lists, effectively enables you to rapidly build an inventory of your projects and update progress and benefits on those with spreadsheet style simplicity.

Additionally you can convert your quick projects at any time into any other type of project. This means you can choose to manage specific actions with a more detailed plan (including leveraging best practice methodology templates) and you can defer the decision about how a specific action should be managed until you better understand its scope, risk and complexity.

i-nexus comes with much more that just a great software

i-nexus comes with much more that just a great software

As well as coming with a set of pre-built methodologies with supporting deliverable templates e.g. the DMAIC Lean Six Sigma improvement methodology, i-nexus software gives you access to Global Best Practice through membership of the Strategy Execution Consortium.

This is an active community of senior Operational Excellence, Strategy and Transformation executives from Global 5000 companies who are committed to on-going bench marking. Membership of the consortium group also provides exclusive access, via the Stratex Hub, to invaluable bench marking resources including best practice presentations from leading organizations that are shared only within the consortium community.
