Creating Winning Workplaces Through Refined Processes
As an ambitious business owner, perhaps you started your business to give you a great lifestyle, choices and freedom. Maybe your entrepreneurial journey is related to increasing the quality time you spend with your family or building a legacy which continues beyond your years. Or maybe your pursuit of business growth is tied directly to creating more profit which builds lasting wealth.
But, like so many business owners, you feel like you’re constantly working in your business. You struggle to put it down. It’s a battle to take holidays. Even a full weekend off doesn’t happen. You can’t even be relied on to show up at your kid’s sports. Or, if you do make it, you’re a million miles away… back at your desk trying to clear the backlog.
What’s more… it seems like the staff you employed produce more work for you because they depend on you for every decision.
If it seems like growing your business will create more stress, then you’re not alone. 85% of businesses are inefficient because they don’t have documented processes.
Our mission is to empower business owners to be effective leaders by learning how to create powerful training and management systems which result in consistently excellent team performance.
Operation Verve was established as an alternative to the conventional business process management companies that use online plug-and-play process management systems.
Instead, we give you the skills to create systems that are unique to your business, the knowledge to maintain them, and the resources to develop them as your business grows.
Operation Verve was created with the vision to help business owners get back to their entrepreneurial mission by transforming their business into highly productive and rewarding workplaces. We do this by developing, refining and documenting their daily business processes. You will unlock all of the high-value operational knowledge currently hidden away inside the minds of you and your team, with our consultants guiding the way. Then secure it all into stable, predictable workplace routines which hum with productivity and profitability.
YOUR TRUSTED PARTNERS
At Operation Verve, we focus on creating and maintaining strong long-term relationships, and we believe that listening is the key. That’s why we have in-depth discovery sessions, to deeply understand your specific needs, so we can help you create your dream business.
We understand how frustrating it is to talk to consultants who have never owned, grown or sold successful businesses. That’s why Operation Verve only has consultants with previous hands-on successful business experience.
As business owners ourselves, we’re committed to getting results for our clients, because your success is our triumph.
WHO WE WORK WITH
We work with clients in all industries, including professional services, health services, retail, manufacturing. Clients who’ve grown their business organically from scratch and are on the verge of reaching a one-million-dollar turnover.
Our clients are the leader of the business, full of entrepreneurial ambition and free spirit. They are forward thinking, willing to learn and work as a team player to transform their organisation and empower their team.
Our clients have a dream of what their business can be. But at times it feels like it’s become a runaway train. It may be growing faster than they imagine, but they are working hard to try to stay ahead of the game.
Our clients value time. That’s why we work with them remotely, via Skype, so they can have the tools, support and resources they need, without spending their precious time travelling. This means they can focus on their work priorities and still have direct access to business mentoring and even workshops whether they live in regional, urban or suburban areas.
Our clients want sustainable growth… to increase the business capacity without being tied to all the work in the business.
NO PONG CASE STORY
When we came to Kerry Anne about getting help with our systems management, we had a lot of great processes, but they were all inside our heads instead of written down. This made running and growing our team much more labour intensive than it needed to be. We would show our team how to do something, and give them what they needed, but if they didn’t understand or made mistakes, we would have to go back to show them ourselves again, and again. With nothing in writing, the only place they could get the instruction they needed was straight from us.
This entire situation was frustrating and time consuming, especially when it seemed obvious to us and we knew how we wanted things to work. It also made the idea of hiring someone new feel like so much more effort than us just continuing to do the work ourselves. We knew we needed to put more people on, but hated to imagine what that would look like if even more people were coming to us for instruction, or making mistakes we had to fix for them.
Now we have a whole host of documentation and a very clear set of well organised systems to run our business. When we bring on new staff, we now have a well established onboarding system to guide us through each step without missing anything. Then, when we are setting our new team members up we have clearly defined processes for them to follow right from Day 1. They are simple and straightforward, and show each person exactly how to do their job. Kerry Anne also has assisted in training our team directly so that everyone knows how to create and change the documents as the processes change. This means everyone here takes on the responsibility to keep our systems up to date.
Kerry Anne is very good to work with. She diligently helps you stay on track and lays out very clear goals and deadlines so that you can complete your tasks. The pathway was crystal clear and Kerry Anne was always there to support us at every step. This made it simple to develop the processes we need to grow our business for years to come.
