As the business owner or executive, you intuitively know what you want your business processes to be and how to effectively and efficiently get things done. Are your team members as crystal clear as you are?

Bill Simmons, founderAt Thrive Business Strategies, we connect with business owners and leaders regularly who struggle with extracting the processes, workflows and systems from their head to create a trainable and scalable solution.

Our five-step model will help you discover, document, design, develop and deliver your company’s systems and processes. As a result, you will be able to leverage these tools for training and efficiency within your team as well as have growth and scalability opportunities for the future.

We have served clients to improve systems throughout their entire business or just within a specific department. Examples include: the sales process for a commercial contractor; demand planning for a manufacturer; client onboarding for a professional services business; and companywide for a manufacturing distributer. Wherever you need clarity in your processes, Thrive Business Strategies can advance your systems.

Here is how our five-step process works:

Discover — During the discover stage, our team clarifies the processes in your business, defines the outcomes and results, and determines the steps to be executed.

Document — Documenting your processes is key to trainability. We develop a 30,000-foot view that provides a basic outline of the critical processes. We then work with you and your team to clarify the captured knowledge.

Design — Advancing your systems requires quality visual presentations that allow you to quickly provide your team with a 10,000-foot view. This gives you the ability to walk through your processes using graphic design and flow charts as teaching tools.

Develop — The develop stage is where standard operating procedures are developed. For your team to execute with consistency, we will standardize task checklists, provide explanations and clarifications, along with determining the tools needed for success.

Deliver — We love extracting the way you see your business in your head and delivering a trainable process to the runway level of your company. Our team partners with you to train your staff.

Advancing your systems improves team communication, elevates performance, and increases the value of your business. This not only builds efficiency and allows you to scale quickly, but lets you focus on working ON the business instead of IN the business.

If you are frustrated with a lack of execution in your business, let us help you mind map your business, taking it from your head into tangible processes and systems your team can follow.
