WHERE D|CIFA CAME FROM
Through years of experience collaborating with a variety of workplaces, the founders of D|CIFA discovered that the performance of businesses were often impeded by existing internal workplace systems and culture. This paradox led them to ask the question – “why is this occurring and how much of an impact is it having on the business?”
Initial research focused on establishing the financial cost that this paradox would have on an organisation. The results were eyeing opening. Highly effective staff who grew increasingly frustrated with a business that failed to reach it’s potential were left feeling disillusioned and dissatisfied. The result was organisation underperformance and a decrease in individual staff productivity. Based on this research, the founders of D|CIFA devised a bottom-up analysis method to highlight these organisational weaknesses and identify the key areas of improvement.
This process then was then tested, again and again, and again. Over the course of two years of work, the Productivity and Performance Audit (PPA) was devised and has become the central tool for testing business performance and identifying key areas of improvement. A fundamental consideration within the development of D|CIFA has been rigorous statistical testing and design, with thorough evaluation incorporated into the audit process.
As a part of the audit process D|CIFA investigates the following:
