The Agenda title:

Business Operates Inefficiently and With High Overhead

The issue is that the company needs to cut costs and free up resources by eliminating process-oriented inefficiencies.

Although it varies from company to company, you might want to examine the following:

  • Are your accounting, HR, and IT departments constantly fielding one-off requests for information?
  • How well controlled are your timecard, expense reporting, and requisition systems?
  • Do people in your organization ever waste time tracking down paper forms that get lost in the workflow?
  • Do HR and accounting staff spend time entering data into their systems that has already been created in another form?
  • Are sales and customer service having problems in accessing up-to-date information?
  • Do you have automated billing and invoicing processes to help decrease employees’ administrative tasks?
