Addressing Business Change and Technology Innovation in a holistic way is a major challenge, whether implementing a new system or ensuring 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. Both must be addressed as part of the overall project and must be viewed as a major component of any initiative.

At Laboratory Systems Consulting we incorporate business change and technology innovation iinto all our projects while at the same time ensure that all the necessary steps are taken to ensure that the project is delivered On Time and On Budget.

First, we listen to - and understand - your unique set of conditions before
we design and plan the systems you need to achieve market success. Through a powerful blend of management and technical expertise combined with substantial industry knowledge, we collaborate and integrate with your
business and technology leadership teams to define business architectures and processes.
We then work with the team to implement the systems and applications that deliver added value to your business.

People, Processes and Technology

Technology innovation alone does not result in project success.
At LSC we believe that dealing in a holistic way with fundamental management principles, business change and technology
innovation will deliver on the business case and project benefits for the organisation.

The basic units of this holistic approach are :

People: Get the correct people on the project with the right attitude, authority, responsibility and motivation.
Key decisions need to be made by these people who must be empowered.

Processes: Carry out Business Process review and redesign. Optimise and integrate these processes where necessary.

Technology: Select the appropriate technology that delivers the defined business processes in an integrated,
secure and compliant fashion.

By ensuring that these three cornerstones are addressed correctly and by applying fundamental management principles of project management, change management and continuous improvement, projects undertaken have the maximum chance of being delivered On Time, On Budget at the appropriate level of Quality.
