It is important for organizations to invest in developing properly balanced processes. They are a pillar of any successful organization that is growing and they work hand-in-hand with people and systems. Making sure we understand who, what, and how long things can take can bring clarity.
Having properly established processes will help your organization act efficiently, improve productivity, reduce human error, and improve agility. The structure that processes bring help improve the pace the organization can operate. Sprints are more productive and marathoners reach the finish line.
Unfortunately, processes are often given a back seat in the name of speed and agility which then leads to disappointing results against expectations. When we sit back and assess why our expectations weren't met, it often comes back to the lack of process.
Make sure that you set yourself up for success by committing to talking about the processes involved in your planning and execution.
