DesignedWORK is a pioneer in the design and systemic improvement of human work and people-dependent operations.
By improving the design of business-process roles that are dependent on people for value creation (e.g., sales, customer services, technical and professional services, production and logistics work, etc.), DesignedWORK improves work performance and productivity, resolves people problems, reduces indirect costs, and makes day-to-day operations run more smoothly for managers.
DesignedWORK has since its founding in 2002 utilized a proprietary method for work design that was created in the mid 1980s and refined continually since then. This method essentially translates and integrates the up-to-date expertise of 12 primary science-based disciplines (plus select research findings from another 50+ disciplines) into a whole-system framework that is applied at the process-role (or job) level of work.
Since 2005 DesignedWORK has been working with clients of the nonprofit Humaneering Institute to support its application testing of humaneering technology's alpha and beta releases in a broad range of industries and functions. Humaneering utilizes the same transdisciplinary information as DesignedWORK's approach to work design, yet is more refined so it can be learned and applied by operations managers, engineers and improvement pros, and achieve similar results.
In 2013, the nonprofit Humaneering Institute outsourced its technology transfer and commercialization services to DesignedWORK. In response, DesignedWORK developed a special program of services to support interested organizations.
