My father was constantly losing his keys. I remember many times helping him search for them. It was extremely frustrating and we would waste so much time trying to find those keys. So, I have established the routine when I come home of placing my keys in a designated bowl.
This habit has saved me much frustration, as well as wasted time and energy. It is a small thing but has helped me avoid unnecessary aggravation.
This is the significance of creating what we call “repeatable processes.” By establishing how to perform tasks (or processes) in the same way each time, a Company reduces errors, increases both Customer and Staff satisfaction, and saves time and energy. I joke that it is better to do something the wrong way every time than to do it differently each time. Do not misunderstand. I am not suggesting you do anything incorrect or wrong. I am encouraging creating processes that are designed to be efficient and effective and worth being repeated.
Evaluating your processes positions a Company for sustainability and growth. Do you need help evaluating your processes so you can determine how to build those worth repeating?
