Do you feel sick and tired of:
Feeling like you are playing catch-up, all the time
Working with broken and ineffective systems and processes and having no idea where to start to improve them
Being the only one who knows how things are done and dealing with endless questions from your colleagues
Never knowing where anything is stored, or who is working on what, or the version of the file you should be working in
You are not alone! I have seen this scenario time and time again!
Before working with me, my clients had operations that were ad hoc at best and deeply siloed across teams, the organisation files were disorganized, and there was no single source of truth or standard way to do things. Let alone any direction or support for someone like you.
After implementing my proven process they now have standardized, clear, and effective systems that limit manual data entry, promote collaboration, and embed data visibility and accessibility across their entire organisation!
And now you can learn how to use my process to create a more efficient and effective way of working!
This operations improvement intensive will teach you the
Stop Using Spreadsheet Method.
A step-by-step process that can be applied over and over again to ensure that you:
Stop playing catch-up and start being proactive
Feel confident that you can find solutions to any operations challenge
And build-in best practices that will save you time ...and your sanity!
This course is for you if:
You want to shine as an operations or administrative professional
You want to learn how to implement clear and effective business systems
You want to spend less time building reports
You want to create a single source of truth for your organisation
You want to feel confident that you can provide timely and effective support and excel at your job!
The Stop Using Spreadsheet Method will help you even if:
You are completely new to business systems and operations
You are an operations vet with years of experience
You feel too overwhelmed to take on anything new
You feel like your are not tech-savvy enough!
