Improving Business Processes

As we have said countless times on our blog running a business and takes different skills from the ones you use when planning, styling or designing a wedding or event. Last night on #WedBizHour our topic up for discussions was about how you can improve your business processes.

If you don’t set yourself some processes within your business it is like going on a road trip without planning a route, you sort of drift around not really getting where you want to be and never really achieving anything. As usual there were some great tips shared and below I have summarised some of those below and if you click this link you can read the full transcript:

  1. Imagine you had a team of employees, how would you describe the daily procedures?
  2. Try mapping one of our daily processes ( e.g lead follow ups) as a flow diagram.
  3. Are you duplicating any part of the process? Or worse still missing lead follow ups because there is a missing link.
  4. Spend 2 minutes pondering what your daily frustrations are? Could they be improved by a better process?
  5. o improve your old processes you may just need to look to technology to make them more relevant, could texting not email work?
  6. If you do make process changes, then set a date to evaluate if it’s been a success.
