We helped the Car Refinishes organization with multiple challenges among of which was the decentralization of the formula development labs. The best practice organization of the Sassenheim laboratory was taken as a standard for which processes and responsibilities needed to be documented and transfered to eastern Europe (Poland).
We helped describe the global Car Refinishes processes with the RASCI-method© including jobdescriptions and competence profile. For the formula development lab we took this as a blueprint to setup a new lab in Poland together with experienced people from Sassenheim location.
It was possible to realize a complete formula development department in Poland in a very short period of time. The processes with RASCI responsibilities, complete with matching jobdescriptions and competence profiles made this possible.
