Are you feeling overwhelmed by the disorganized and chaotic tasks in your business? Streamlining is the answer!
What is streamlining? Streamlining organizes processes to make them more effective and efficient by employing faster or simpler working methods.
Steps to streamline business processes:
Determine which process you want to streamline.
Write down each step you and your team currently take to complete the tasks.
Review the current steps and determine where there are issues with bottlenecking or handing it off to other teams.
Discuss the processes with all staff and managers involved. Ask for feedback on how the process can be improved.
Identify tasks that are redundant or unnecessary. Remove these steps.
Identify tasks that may need to be added.
Ensure there is a check and balance in the process.
Ensure there are no holes in the process.
Look for ways to automate the tasks.
Write your new process, one step at a time. Ensure you add the person or team accountable for each step.
The last step in the process should always be a review of the process to ensure every step was completed correctly.
If you are using a task program or checklist, add a final step to remove the task/checklist once reviewed and completed.
If you are using a task program or checklist, create a template to be used each time the process needs to be completed.
Automate tasks whenever possible. Doing so:
Decreases time spent on the tasks
Reduces expenses (including payroll expenses – when time is saved)
Ensures it is always done the same way every time
Prevents human errors
Provides high-quality assurance and customer satisfaction
