PacSci EMC & the Fortive Business System (FBS)
At PacSci EMC (a Fortive operation company or OpCo) success happens with purpose and intent. Our proven system for achieving this success is known as the Fortive Business System (FBS), which drives our performance and every aspect of our culture.
A never-ending cycle of change and improvement is driven by the FBS engine and fueled by PacSci EMC’s core values:
- Exceptional PEOPLE develop
- Outstanding PLANS
- Constructing sustainable PROCESSES (executed by using world-class tools)
- Resulting in superior PERFORMANCE.
Superior performance and high expectations attract exceptional people, who then continue the cycle.
Guiding all efforts is a simple philosophy rooted in four customer-facing priorities: Quality, Delivery, Cost, and Innovation.
Fortive Business System Tools
Excelling in: Growth, Leadership, Lean and Fundamentals
The Fortive Business System tools we utilize include a philosophy, set of values, and series of management processes that collectively define how we do what we do and who we are today. It’s these tools that have become the differentiator for our business because:
- They have been refined over time into an integrated set of values and processes
- They are designed to yield the highest impact
- They can be implemented quickly and sustained over time by all our associates
- They are shared across all of Fortive’s operating companies
Our culture is values-based, customer-centric, process-oriented, and results-driven. At Fortive, and all Fortive OpCo’s, all associates must act with integrity and conduct business honestly and fairly. On this point, there is no negotiation. We have four core values that continuously guide our work.
We are a team dedicated to tackling the world’s most critical challenges.
- We seek out talented, curious people with a passion for better.
- We invest in our people, providing unlimited opportunities for personal learning and growth.
- We pursue continuous development to accelerate progress for ourselves and our customers.
- We work together to win together.
- At PacSci EMC we hire, develop and retain the best talent in order to build our winning team.
Our customer-centric focus drives us to create innovative solutions that directly address customer needs.
- Our goal is progress, in the form of essential technology that makes the world stronger, safer and better.
- We apply creativity and rigor to breakthrough products, services and processes.
- We’re there for our customers in the decisive moments, when precision and expertise are crucial.
- We dream, develop and deliver innovation to strengthen businesses and deepen learning.
- Robust, repeatable processes yield superior Quality, Delivery, and Cost that satisfy our customers beyond their expectations.
We constantly strive to do better, setting the bar high for ourselves and each other.
- Kaizen, or continuous improvement, is the foundation of our culture and fuels our passion for finding a better way.
- We are always driven to do better, pushing to rethink the status quo and competing on behalf of our customers for what’s next.
- Through our commitment to improvement and our bias for action, we combine the strength of an established company with the agile, inquisitive mindset of innovators.
- At PacSci EMC we constantly strive to do better and continuously eliminate waste in every facet of our business processes.
Results matter. It’s not a choice between building process or driving results…it’s about doing both. Jim Collins sums up this concept in the book “Built to Last” as the Tyranny of the Or versus the Genius of the And.
At PacSci EMC and Fortive, how we compete for shareholders is by embracing the Genius of the And. It’s true genius when we find ways to embrace the positive aspects of both sides of two seemingly contradictory concepts, and instead of choosing, we do both. And that’s how geniuses win.
We deliver essential technologies to solve the world’s most critical challenges and outperform the market.
- We respond decisively to market demands and have a track record of success.
- We fuel our future through effective, disciplined internal and external capital deployment.
- We build our businesses to attract and retain long-term shareholders and employees.
- Our rigorous application of kaizen and FBS is our ultimate competitive advantage.
The Fortive Business System has been fundamental in our journey towards achieving Operational Excellence at PacSci EMC, as it drives our company in the application of Values, Principles, Systems, Tools and Processes towards a long-term change in organizational culture.
Our Fortive Busines System is a way of doing business and not a destination; therefore, even though we have made significant progress towards driving organizational success that delivers great results to our customers, at PacSci EMC we believe that business journeys start but never end.
