Streamlining your operation is one of the most effective steps you can take to increase your efficiency and productivity, with the elimination of needless tasks and wasteful resources at the core of the strategy. However, identifying which tasks should be improved can be challenging, so if you’re devising a streamlining strategy for your business, consider the following five elements:
1) Value Chain Analysis:
For businesses to be profitable, the value of the end product or service must not be less than the total resources expended creating it. Every step of the process, from product design to packaging, must contribute to the value chain in a meaningful and financially justifiable way. Value chain analysis enables businesses to assess how much value each task contributes.
2) Automating Repetitive Tasks:
Some repetitive tasks, such as product labelling and packaging, may be more economical if the process is automated. However, tasks that contribute high value to the value chain should be completed personally if automation would have a negative impact.
3) Eliminating Bottlenecks:
Workflows should be fluent and steady but, like the pinch points that often affect traffic flow on a main route into a city, bottlenecks can interrupt the process and stall productivity. Staff shortages, a lack of materials or resources, or technical issues with equipment can all cause bottlenecks.
Handoffs – when information is passed between staff members – can cause problems if not completed on time, so automating the process can be beneficial.
5) Moments Of Truth:
The moment when a customer interacts with the final product or service and forms an impression of the brand is the most important part of the process. Streamlining these moments of truth can greatly enhance the customer’s experience.
