Better Process Management For Your Team
Tune Up Your Workflow

What I Do

Based on an onsite visit, I review your team's current business processes. I then evaluate their effectiveness for your particular organization and industry and produce a written assessment with recommendations for improving your workflow. This assessment can serve as a road map for your team to use in making workflow modifications. My analysis focuses on three areas:

Workflow

The receipt and management of information within your organization.

Collaboration

The sharing of information among your team members and with your clients.

Tech Integration

Use of the appropriate technology to manage workflow and communicate among your team and with clients.

What is Workflow?

Workflow is the definition, execution and automation of business processes where tasks, information or documents are passed from one participant to another for action, according to a set of procedural rules. Organizations use workflows to coordinate tasks between people and synchronize data between systems, with the ultimate goal of improving organizational efficiency, responsiveness and profitability.

A fully functional digital workflow provides four key benefits to a company: Improved productivity; Process transparency; Faster business reaction time; Improved accountability.
