MMB Episode 20: Business Process of Simplify, Implement, & Optimize
Parker has some mad skills when it comes to running a successful business, and he’s able to implement business processes in ways that many others aren’t able to.
You might even call his ability his “superpower”!
In this episode, he talks about how he uses his business process management “superpower” to simplify, implement, and optimize.
Let’s dive into the highlights of today’s episode by learning about these 3 steps.
Simple is nice and easy, right? Simple is (obviously) uncomplicated – and that’s the problem for many business owners. They complicate things that don’t need to be complicated – or to put it another way, they don’t simplify when they could.
Undoubtedly, businesses are not simple, and most processes are complicated.
However, work to simplify.
Take your end goal, and break down your process into the fewest number of steps in order to achieve your goal. Eliminate any extra pieces that can be eliminated until you are down to the very “skeleton” of your process.
That’ll make your next step much easier.
The fewer steps you have, the easier it is to implement. Once you are down to your process “skeleton”, implement that. The bells and whistles aren’t necessary.
Leave them alone for now.
Catch his example about shipping and how that business process has evolved over time.
Then, move on to Optimize.
3. Optimize The Business Process
Once you have your “skeleton” up and running at bare-bones minimum, that’s when you add the bells and whistles.
In other words, do whatever is absolutely necessary to get yourself up and running first. Then, go back and add in any “nice-to-haves” later to make things even better.
