Most SMBs operate in highly competitive, rapidly changing markets. Intense cost, margin and technology pressures — compounded by limited resources and never-ending time constraints — challenge SMB owners and their management teams to continually innovate and invest in business development projects that optimize operational and financial performance.

PROJEX Analytics Toolkit

Our COBRA 3D® Performance Analytics Toolkit aggregates data from industry leading sources to help SMBs rapidly identify strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in key business areas. Self-assessment tools are available to get the ball rolling. Guided assessments provide the framework, methodology, tools and templates (business development roadmaps) needed for more in-depth analyses.

Self Assessments

Our online self-assessment tools provide a simple, effective way for SMBs to rapidly identify operational strengths and weaknesses, helping the management team focus their time and resources on high-impact improvement opportunities. Each functional assessment includes approximately 10 carefully crafted, process-specific questions. Responses are tabulated automatically against aggregated benchmarking data, and the results are displayed as a simple, color-coded, high-level maturity level assessment for key processes within each business function.

Guided Assessments

Guided performance assessments help Project Execution Network clients address three common pain points: Growth, productivity and engagement. These are the key drivers of SMB performance and valuation:

  • Growth assessments: Tools and templates are available to help SMBs evaluate financial performance (vs aggregate data for one or more specified industries) and maturity levels for key sales and marketing functions.
  • IT/Productivity assessments: Our IT network and security assessment packages provides a detailed risk summary for your existing IT network and all connected devices.
  • Engagement assessments: Organizational development assessments help SMBs benchmark the performance of critical HR functions.

Guided performance assessments are embedded in our COBRA 3D® business process applications.

Frameworks

Project Execution Network uses comprehensive, cross-industry analytical frameworks to classify data and organize assessments within key business functions. Our frameworks provide a “standardized” taxonomy of business functions and sub-functions, allowing clients to objectively track and compare performance against organizations from any industry. These frameworks also serve as the basis for our business development roadmaps and playbooks.
