Gap Analysis and Verification
Organizations should regularly review their operations and management systems and take appropriate action to remain competitive in their industry. A gap analysis strategy helps management determine how their current operating performance compares with the best possible performance for their operations. This prepares the company to focus on improving under performing areas in order to raise the overall competitiveness of the company.
