Procedure Program Standardization across all Upstream Operations

The Problem

Standardization of business processes presented a challenge for this client due to the scale of their upstream enterprise, which consists of 11,000 oil and natural gas wells in hundreds of fields.

As a multinational company, employees wanted an easy to use solution to manage their complex business while improving global participation. Recognizing the necessity for procedures in English as well as in native languages, multilingual procedure development was identified as the next frontier of human performance.
