A compounding effect accrues with improved participation across the organization, leading to increased employee and team productivity, simplified business processes, and improved workflow, which can:
- Enhance revenue opportunities and competitive advantage
- Streamline product development and bring products to market more quickly
- Shorten the sales cycle and directly benefit overall profitability
