To what industries does the CAT-SCAN apply?
There are Five separate industry-specific versions:
TheMANUFACTURING/PROCESSINGversion, appropriate for considering organizations involved in the production, processing and sales of tangible goods, both consumer and non-consumer.
TheSERVICE INDUSTRY version, appropriate for analyzing organizations which provide primarily intangible or non-consumable goods/services and are in the business of selling “expertise.”
TheRETAIL/DISTRIBUTION version, appropriate for understanding organizations which sell (or distribute) tangible goods, which in turn are produced by one or a series of suppliers.
TheRESTAURANT version, appropriate for analyzing retail food organizations, as chains or as individual establishments, and for franchisee evaluation and management.
TheNON-PROFIT version, appropriate for analyzing membership organizations, such as trade associations, professional societies, charitable foundations, as well as governmental entities.
All versions of the system have been extensively tested and validated on four continents.
How does using the CAT-SCAN compare in cost and time to traditional consulting?
The savings can be enormous. Studies done by both private firms and national consulting/accounting firms show average savings in both time and cost of 5:1. That is, for comparable areas of consulting, the system can do the project five times faster and at one-fifth the cost compared to traditional consulting methods.
