When you spend so much time documenting processes, and your team still don’t utilise them, what do you do? Every business needs processes, but when they’re not actually having the impact you know they can in your business, it can be frustrating.
In today’s episode of The Business Efficiency Podcast, I take you through a framework to help you determine how to determine what to do when either the processes or the people in your business aren’t working together – and it may not be as obvious as you think.
Spoiler Alert: Ultimately – the people in your team are the most important piece of the puzzle here. It might need some flexible thinking and supportive systems or tools to enable your team to work effectively.
Getting all of these working well, enables your business to run smoothly.
Listen in to make sure you consider this framework when problem-solving the issues that show up inside your business.
