About this Event

Does your business suffer any of these issues?

  • Process failure
  • Lost or misplaced Information
  • Failed to Meet a Project deadline
  • Fallout and arguments between departments
  • Ran out of stock
  • Poor Housekeeping
  • Failed service - More than once?
  • Received a Customer Complaint
  • Lack of Communication
  • Mistakes due to lack of training

These are all common problems within businesses operations, in both large and small businesses, and even the slickest of companies can experience problems occasionally. The majority of the problems above are as a result of a breakdown in process and procedure.

“85% of the reasons for failure in business are deficiencies in the systems and process rather than the employee. The role of management is to change the process rather than badgering individuals to do better.” W Edwards Deming
