At the beginning of the process control review cycle, the senior business consultant works with project managers to clearly identify a problem or goal, as well as what metrics may be used to further analyze the project goal. Next, the senior business consultant works with project managers to develop a plan to gather data and improve the process control. Then, the project is broken up into smaller segments and delegated to engineers, who gather data and implement the new scheme. The senior business consultant then works with project managers to assess the efficacy of the new scheme and make adjustments as necessary. Finally, the senior business consultant works with project managers to write a detailed report and make any needed presentations to company stakeholders or executives.
