A key factor in the success or failure of a business is the quality and consistency of its processes.
If a company produces the best widget on the market but its fulfillment process is broken or its customer service department cannot effectively resolve issues, how likely is it that the company’s new customers will become repeat customers?
Given the importance of effective, repeatable processes, we might expect companies would be laser focused on ensuring the quality of their processes. It’s surprising to learn that this is often not the case.
