Synoptic 9-Way Crystal Ball

9-Way Crystal Ball

The Ultimate Electronic Performance Support System

Our modelling approach links the four dimensions of People, Process, Technology and Policy (strategy), and creates a 9 way many-to-many reference model. Using ‘capture once; use many’-based advanced process modelling software, wasteful and risky single-use tools such as MS-Visio, Word and Excel are avoided. Delivery is fast and productive, there’s a single source of the truth, and knowledge is captured and reused.

At the push of a button, this reference model is published as an HTML website. Users can click-through to browse and understand its elements and relationships, supporting;

  • the project phase – virtual teams can review and participate in the project,
  • the ‘business as usual’ phase – training, procedures and work instructions, FAQs, compliance / risk / quality management, to name a few, are all supported.
