“The biggest room in the world is the room for improvement” – Helmut Schmidt
Only 4% of businesses measure and manage their processes.
Why, when doing so provides an avenue for continuous improvement, advancement, and business success?
At Process Street, documenting our processes means we can continuously assess what is working and what is not.
For instance, when I first began as a Content Writer, I found navigating HTML code difficult. Luckily for me, at Process Street we document all of our business processes, creating full transparency over what works and what doesn’t. In this sense, a stronger HTML focus was needed during training. The required changes were made, and our training processes improved.
In this article, you will find out how you can do the same. You will learn how to:
- Identify opportunities for process improvements.
- Implement the changes required.
- Measure the success of the changes made.
