IDENTIFY PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES related to process and organizational re-alignment across 13 dispatch operations spanning four states.  Particular interest in determining if dynamic routing, dispatch and/or consolidation of dispatch operations would make sense

  • What the right role and appropriate functions for dispatch are and the impact of the various proposed changes on Dispatch leadership, supervision and staff, Technical Operations, Call Centers and NOCs
  • What dynamic routing/dispatching would do and how it could be accomplished without over-complicating the processes
  • Ancillary performance improvement opportunities observed during the assessment
