Team Management

If you want to get the right people in the right seats, working together with a common purpose, then you may want to pause before overhauling your processes and systems.

Sometimes the problem is not the process or the software. Sometimes the problem is people. Or, more specifically, two or more people that do not and will not get along. Departments go to war with one another because the two department heads have conflicting organizational agendas. Tackling people issues openly and honestly saves everyone involved precious time. And, for the business, it saves a lot of needless process re-engineering and software dressing expenditures that, ultimately fail to solve what is at bottom a people issue.

Beyond eliminating problem employees, the fostering of functional work teams through courteous, objective rules of engagement, and understandable processes all reinforce an open approach to continuous learning and improvement resulting in a continual elimination of waste and generation of new ideas on an ongoing basis.

Business Process improvement

It is one thing to work up a budget (or a sales forecast). But creating a budget does not ensure that its targets are met. Growth is a process. Becoming more profitable is a process.

You do not have endless resources. Not all process improvements generate the same returns. So, it is a fool’s errand trying to improve everything all at once. If you want to hit your growth and / or profitablity targets, then you want to know which processes are most important to optimize.

Process improvement means eliminating waste, as in eliminating wasted money. The waste can be in the form of time, material or cash outlays. Typically, improved processes are simpler as in easier for employees, vendors or customers to understand and follow. They can be simpler in terms of reduced steps or components. Often, process improvements can be implemented that either eliminates the need for new expensive software or reduces the complexity and cost of new software.

If you are having trouble controlling costs, or having trouble with product or service quality, or, ultimately, having trouble getting your financial results in order, and you want to do something about it, then I suggest we start here.
