“How Do I Do That Again ? .... The Power of Business Processes”, facilitated by Geoff Strotmann
Part 3 of a 10-part Lunch ‘n Learn discussion vignette series, each serving as a short introduction to the Small Business Boot-Camp business education series. Although processes are among most business owners' least favourite topics and they are often avoided until too late, then implemented in a rush as a band-aid for some catastrophe, processes are critical to and can be developed and implemented for businesses of all sizes. Processes are a proven method for improving business efficiency, flexibility and adaptability and a critical contributor to ultimate improvement in your revenue stream. This presentation will touch on the basics of process development, scalability and will demonstrate why investment in process development is a good investment.
