 _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ CPA Madeasy Business Transformation Products: The Consumer Protection Act differs from previous similar legislation in that compliance will not simply come from adjusting products and services but instead will require a complete transformation of internal behavior in order to manage risk. In addition to this, Government fines of R1Million or 10% of Turn-over or in some cases even imprisonment, will not be the only channel through which organisations are exposed - it also now opens them up to private American style lawsuits. Whilst the risks are very real we have found a more positive approach in implementing the CPA into a business environment. The other side of the coin is the ultimate customer service blueprint which, if implemented successfully, has the potential to add tremendous value to the business. We therefore focus on the CPA from a different perspective - how it can benefit your business. Our approach therefore goes beyond mere awareness and training.  We aim to achieve alignment of the whole organization to the customer service focused requirements of the Act. Depending on the type of business and its size the solution could vary considerably thus we have put together a range of products which start with simple Awareness services and work up to full in-depth consulting interventions for the more complex needs of larger organisations: 1. Awareness and understanding (this is all smaller businesses would need) Supply of the book by Adv. Neville Melville interpreting the act in easy to understand terms. This book is very useful in bringing about a wide base of understanding and should be supplied to all managers or key staff. The "disks only" retail shop floor awareness training kit Presentation of the Act and its impact in terms of your business (3 hour detailed overview) 2. Behavioral Transformation (this would apply to larger businesses) Business impact work session (1 day session to enable key managers to produce an Action Plan) Action Plan, Policy and Standard Operating Procedures and shop floor training Role Accountability Mapping and Behavioral Transformation Change Management Municipality Madeasy - we also specialise in implementing CPA compliance into all spheres of Government simultaneously addressing Service Delivery issues and introducing powerful tools for Monitoring, Evaluating and Reporting (www.KnowledgeBankERP.com) The two stage approach incrementally assesses the degree of readiness thus giving the organisation the ability to quickly and cost effectively identify potential problem areas and to then decide whether to proceed with more in-depth investigations and corrective interventions. The assessment stages are informative and result in a high level of awareness whereas the final stage enables the organisation to manage the behavioral transformation required. The most effective solution to organisation-wide behavioral transformation lies in a process called Role Accountability Mapping which relates the day to day functions of all relevant employees to the behavior Outcomes contained in the Act and then monitors the impact of change and compliance on an ongoing basis. This also leaves a legacy of dynamic transformation technology for future business improvements. The model produced in this final stage has a significant legacy as it will provide a mechanism through which future business innovation or improvement interventions can be planned and rolled out.
