Annoyance Factor Zero
You probably don’t need any convincing; constant, repetitive internal email reminders, new “revolutionary” technology systems that don’t work right and lengthy approval processes aren’t what you would consider helpful business practices. Factor in every other seemingly pointless thing that prevents you from getting work done and here’s what you get: the annoyance factor.
Smart companies do their best to minimize annoyances but they often times aren’t aware simply because they don’t ask. Start with honest feedback from employees to learn what keeps them from being productive. Engage them directly and they’ll want to create streamlined processes, find useful technology tools and help come up with practical solutions that flat-line your annoyance factor.
Here are a few questions you can ask to identify your problem areas and strong suits:
What would you do differently?
Why do you do ____ that way?
What’s your biggest time waster?
You might be surprised how much more efficient your company will run when you take the time to identify and reduce annoyances that hinder production.
