This week on What Keeps You Up At Night, host Brendan Major is joined by John Bean of Advicoach. Brendan and John will discuss how business process improvement can affect the bottom line of any small business. John is an expert in the area of integating new business processes into an organization. Some of the questions and best practices we will discuss: Did you test-fit your initiative against all aspects of your vision, mission, values, and strategic plan? Did you solicit input from select employees? If the initiative “dovetails” nicely to your current vision mission values and strategic plan did you answer common misconceptions about misalignment staff may make? When changes are made do you communicate with staff?
