Business Agility: Workplace Processes Must Change Along With The Rest of The Business
One of my passions is helping people do their jobs better, so both their work satisfaction and the company's bottom line are improved.
Invariably, processes become complex, with unnecessary steps, because business is dynamic. Things are always changing and, unless an effort is made to adjust processes, they will never be optimum for what is currently being worked on.
However, it's a cycle: the extra steps cause us to fall behind, so we spend all our time doing BAUs (business as usual), so we don't have time to step back and "work ON our business instead of IN the business".
This is the area that I shine in because, unlike a large consulting company (which sends in hordes of junior associates to create a large Powerpoint deck on how to massively change processes), I can come in quietly and, with my decades of experience, and my Strategic Simplicity® "scalpel", carve out small, but powerful, changes that are easily to implement, and dramatically improve results.
