Choosing the right people – No one person is going to be the best at everything. As the
company is growing, specific knowledge and skill sets are required to support the
growth of the company and to ensure that company continue to grow in an
environment that continuously changes.
Establishing clear processes that every team member understands are extremely
important. When a task needs to be completed, there is a clear funnel and order of
operations that must be followed. This improves efficiency and reduces the chance of
fumbling information and having things slip through the cracks.
Establishing financial processes and expectation. Having a clear understanding of the
business financial capability will ensure that the company will not pursue opportunities
that may be outside of our scope, and make business decisions that supports the
continuous growth of the company.
Information Management – Operations is a complex initiative and involves various
stakeholders. Additionally, there are various external conditions impacting outcomes. It
is very important to maintain an objective view into how efficient our operations are.
And the place to start is data collection. Data driven decision-making should not be an
afterthought.
