Not all companies are the same. Even when they belong to the same industry.
Using Business Process Reengineering methodologies, the project team approaches the client's company as an individuality by itself, defines its specific organizational layout, outlines its significant processes, and assesses main workflows and responsibilities assigned to managers and executives with regard to accomplishing the planned objectives.
Even from this starting phase, the objectives are defined pursuant to the issues the project will address: so they will be classified into categories such as environmental, ethical, legal, operational, and social.
The results of this phase will also be beneficial to the Bee! knowledge base that will be enriched through additional assessment questions specific to the single Client.
Through interviews and checklists with weighted answers, each aspect of the organizational process is assessed with relevant principles, rules, and regulations. If needed, features are available to customize checklists with company-specific questions.
Risk Scoring and Risk Matrix
The weighting methodology is strictly proprietary and fully customizable according to the specific business environment. This way risk factors are investigated with regard to organization areas and processes.The intermediate output is the Risk Scoring which leads to a multidimensional Risk Matrix: it maps risks onto the processes and eventually onto the single critical tasks.
This feature highlights the risk factors drilling down into organizational areas or processes as set by the Risk Matrix.
Action Plan Management & Follow Up
Results of the checklists and preliminary survey indicate if corrective actions are required. At the end of the process, Bee! automatically suggests corrections, schedules the execution, and monitors progress and results. In using our methodology, an organization’s inherent risk can be reduced to an acceptable residual risk as defined by the clients.
Balanced Scorecard dashboard
The very problem when starting or evaluating a CSR / compliance initiative is: what will its economic impact be? Or: what marketing outcome will we get out of it?
The Balanced Scorecard (BSC) dashboard is a strategic performance management tool aimed at monitoring corporate strategy objectives through measuring the most relevant performance indicators.
The benefit of a BSC Model is the ability of managers to measure or even anticipate the outcome or their decisions quickly and in real-time by monitoring the most relevant Key Performance Indicators (that allow, for example, to identify areas of the business that are not performing according to expectations).
CCS has also developed a BSC-based CSR Compliance Model that monitors corporate strategy with regard to CSR principles also. The four traditional BSC perspectives are evaluated through key performance indicators that include compliance indicators such as ethics, environment, community, governance, and operation related objectives.
Our BSC model allows and promotes ongoing efforts within a company to be proactive within the issues of ethics, community, and environment, and also adds a new standpoint from which to monitor the four traditional perspectives of BSC.
After the Project
When most people think of consultants, they think of the “Bob’s” in the movie Office Space. It’s true, some consulting firms may deliver just words, and at a very high cost too.
Our Bee Suite! not only defines a GRC pragmatic model, but sets a behavioural standards in an ongoing process which increases the reliability of the processes and, finally, of the organization itself. When our consultants walk out the door, the Bee Suite! stays with you.
And these are not just words. It’s our promise and our enduring commitment.
At C.C.S., indeed, we are convinced that the most ethical way to remain unique is to share with our clients the knowledge, the expertise, and the tools which make us unique. When we leave, our client’s will have the know-how to use our tools and to face and fix new issues.
Our professionals will familiarize clients with our approach and our tools. At the end they will gain the skills needed to start a new compliance project or review an existing one. Therefore, our technology illustrates how to overcome problems that traditionally prevent many companies from adopting a more effective CSR Model.
