Daring Systems Services

Daring’s Fact-Based Operations (FBO) Framework is a unique and versatile model for helping organizations of all size achieve visibility and clarity in driving their operations. The model, which emphasizes production results, project delivery, internal capabilities, and workforce strategy, provides a straightforward approach to baselining and improve operations. The FBO Framework applies across multiple domains and industries. The Daring team customizes the implementation for each client so that the metrics and areas of focus are designed specifically for the client and their unique challenges. Daring relies on both quantitative and qualitative measures to bring the baseline to life for each organization. We provide more than an executive summary – we provide an in-depth analysis and work with each client to determine the right next steps.
