When it comes to your business operations, you may start out with fairly simple processes. But over time, the way you conduct your business can become more complex as your company grows, as you introduce new programs and procedures, and as employees develop their own ways of getting the job done. Unfortunately, this can have a negative impact on your productivity, turning once-simple tasks into monumental hurdles. And the worst part is that very little of the work being done might be necessary to ongoing operations. For this reason it is imperative that you perform an audit and figure out where time is being wasted, as well as how to best create the targeted practices that ensure work is completed in an effective and efficient manner.
