Stardom System - Stardom Opportunity Concept

Stardom System is Sprof's framework for comprehensive business development. It consists of two separate concepts; Sprof Opportunity and Sprof Stardom. Sprof Opportunity is a full scale business analytical concept, that X-rays most key functions, operations and processes of the organisation. Sprof Stardom is the concept that starts recovering the identified business potential and fulfilling other development needs.

Exploiting the Stardom System generates money in two ways. Firstly, by emphazising effective sales procedures and addressing key customer satisfaction issues and improving sales figures.  Secondly, by internalizing the step by step approach identified from the analysis, the hidden business potential feeds directly into the profit and loss statement.

Benefits of implying the Sprof Opportunity Concept 

  • You concentrate on the right issues!  Your "As Is" situation is thoroughly clarified before you and your folks start streamlining processes, try utilizing your resources better and introduce management programmes to improve leadership.

  • Sprof Opportunity enables you take advantage of your business potential.

You know and Sprof knows there are no shortcuts to business stardom.

  • All will get a lot of new information about the current status of your business. All key findings are not to be found in your ERP, CRM or Human Resource systems.  Data is one story, useful business information completely another!

Sprof Opportunity is a full scale business analytics concept,  that X-rays most key operations of the organisation. It  consists of six main blocks.

1. The "helicopter view" discussion

This discussion is the final talk between the client and Sprof before staring. The goal is to   clarify the expectations of both sides and also present to Sprof their strategic goals and   guidelines .

The agenda also covers what  present operational pain spots  that is worrying the Executive Management Team (EMT) of the client. 

2. Kick-Off

The kick-off phase contains two important elements. Having a proper information meeting  with the staff concerned and to take care of that the analyst team members have the work space, tools, computer user permissions, pass permissions and other necessities to conduct their mission.

It is also important to share crucial house rules concerning work safety, behaviour on customer's site and other practicalites

​​3. Statistical Analysis

In the Statistical Analysis business analyst are, normally using Stardom System calculation models, number crashing a lot of your performance data, both operational and financial. 

If some issue needs further clarifica-

tion, questionnaires and short time manual follow-up are as well used in order to get a first glimpse at the identified findings. All results and findings is undergoing validation by a controller or other client expert. Sprof plays always with open cards.

The statistical analysis is based on acknowledged statistical methods as

used for scientific purposes

​​4. Operational  Analysis

The Operational Analysis X-rays the business operations, with focus on

machine utlization, effective labour utilization etc. Capacity control  is  one key element to success,

In addition analysts are sequencing key operational processes, especially the order-delivery process. Thus the  total operational efficiency is covered.

Depending on findings and  potential estimates,  the sequencing process can rely on already modelled business processes, but can also be carried out "the Sprof way". One key question is how well in control of bottle necks, tricky quality risk containing  working stages and  material workflows the client is submitted to.

​​5. Mangerial Effectiveness

To create a comprehensive picture of a business, it is crucial to understand the preferences and leaderships styles of those in charge. To get a solid picture  of managerial effectiveness it is crucial to make observations on the manage-rial and leadership routines. Further-more, it is important to clarify the align-ment of key managers to the strategic goals, business model execution,  customer orientation and project portfolio issues of the company. 

​​6. Presentation

When the analysis work is done all finding and development potential is presented to the clients EMT. In addition Sprof also presents the  the blueprint, completed together the the client, how a major part of the identi-fied potential could be recovered.
