Despite some of the challenges we (along with most other small businesses) faced in 2010, we are determined that in 2011 we will improve our business systems, further educate our team members, serve our clients better than ever, and grow our company!
For starters, we thought the best way to welcome 2011 was to GET ORGANIZED!
Jake, Luke, Chris, Kathryn and I spent the better part of a day last week cleaning and organizing our Production System. (Look at the dust on that table! Kathryn and I were sure to dust, sweep, Windex, repeat, many, MANY times while the guys hung countless boards on the walls and partitions.)
Though the project is not quite finished, the progress we have made has already helped us to streamline our Production efforts, and that feels great!
Bear in mind the Production System headquarters is located in our warehouse, so the space is much more functional than it is aesthetic. (The landscapes we design and install are much more beautiful than this warehouse corner!) The space does, however, accommodate the needs of the System better than ever before!
The new arrangement also allows for an official training corner where we can educate our team members on the many aspects of the Landscape Contracting Industry. How convenient!
There are many more exciting projects to cross off our To-Do List, and I'll post the progress as we tackle them!
Happy New Year!
