Areas of Expertise

At Pi-Lab we focus on making small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) more productive, sustainable and efficient. Our consultation services use a collaborative productivity improvement framework “4PoP” designed specifically for SMEs.

4PoP is a systematic approach developed by Pi-Lab for a firm to organize its business allowing for rapid and sustainable productivity gains. The framework includes Four Pillars of Productivity (4PoP): strategy, operations, technology, and innovation.

We strongly believe that these four pillars stand upon a base of a solid organizational culture. While most firms already have plans in place for strategy, operations, technology, innovation and organizational culture, they are not always aligned in a manner that is conducive to productivity gains and overall business competitiveness. Our consultation offers strategic alignment through expertise and lean methodology that would take your business to the next level.
