1:1 Operations Strategy Days

Streamlining to create a ops framework that works.

A tangled mess

That’s how some operations functions end up. Over time systems and processes have evolved but they haven’t been sense-checked. Instead layer upon layer has built up until it’s semi-organised chaos. Either it doesn’t work, it’s too confusing or it just takes too long. 

But Ops is a live function that needs to work right now. Taking time out to evaluate what’s working (and what isn’t) and then make the necessary changes feels like a daunting task. 

What if it goes wrong? What if what you end up with doesn’t work? What if you choose the wrong systems? 

Sometimes it’s easier to stick with what you’ve got….right? Wrong.

 

Streamline your operations, streamline your business

You’re wasting time, mental energy and money when you’ve got a cumbersome Ops function. 3 things you can’t afford to squander. 

Instead, you could take 1 day to streamline your Ops and in the process create a more streamlined business which functions better, at a higher level and more efficiently. 

It seems like a no-brainer.

Hi, I'm Amy

Start-Up & Virtual-Assistant Mentor.

I live just outside Birmingham, UK, in a tiny village with one shop. 

With over a decade of experience in Business Administration, Operations and Marketing, I’ve seen it all. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I work with my clients on making sure their businesses run smoothly and efficiently, freeing them up to focus on what they do best and moving their business forward.

As a Start-Up & Virtual Assistant Mentor I go into businesses and look at how they run. I put their processes under the microscope and help untangle the mess they’re in. That might be suggesting software, creating templates for things like annual leave or comparing their different support systems to find and eradicate duplication. 

I’ve seen the mess people get into when their Ops doesn’t function properly. Because Ops is the control centre of a business. If it’s in a state of disarray and no-one knows how to do something it’s not long until the business falls over.

I want to share my experiences with you to help you unpick your Ops and streamline it so it functions in the best way possible.

Reset your business with a tailored Ops 1:1 Strategy Day

But what if you could spend 1 day with an expert reviewing your current Ops framework and making sure that it works? 

That’s what my Ops 1:1 Strategy Day is. It’s an opportunity for us to take a closer look at your set-up and make sure key systems are in place. You’ll get to take full advantage of my industry expert and hands-on knowledge.

Together we’ll explore your pain points, what works, what doesn’t, what’s clunky and what’s downright awkward and then we’ll pull together a strategy to fix it all. 

Our day will be broken into key areas to make sure you end the day confident in your Ops process and knowing how to maximise its efficiency. Then I’ll follow up with you 1-month later to make sure you’ve been able to put our plans in place. 

It’s 1-day where you can make considered, strategic decisions about how your Ops functions.

 

We’ll look at all areas including:

  • Budgeting and Cost Management
  • Human Resources Support
  • Technology Integration
  • Communication and Coordination
  • Project Management
  • Customer Support Operations
  • Process Development and Optimisation
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Inventory Management (where applicable)
  • Logistics and Distribution
  • Quality Control
  • Vendor Management
  • Facilities Management
  • Data Analysis and Reporting
  • Compliance and Risk Management
  • Scalability Planning
  • Continuous Improvement
 

Don’t leave your Operations function to chance. Be proactive, be purposeful and be proud of how your business operates.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Ops 1:1 Strategy Day is perfect for any business that wants to get serious about its operations processes. whether that’s 1-person micro-businesses or teams of 10+.

The 1:1 Strategy Day is fully online over Zoom, so location isn’t an issue. We are also happy to deliver this in-person and on site if preferred!

We’ll start by identifying any pain points you have right now and doing a SWOT analysis of your current set up. Next we’ll talk to the wider team and/or decision makers about their areas of concern before working through a comprehensive operations audit and flagging any further areas for improvement along with solutions for you to try.

1 month after your 1:1 Strategy Day we’ll arrange a check-in to see how you’re getting on and to make sure you’re following your new plan.

All I need from you prior to our 1:1 Strategy Day is a copy of your current staff hierarchy, any areas that you have already identified that you are struggling with and the names and job titles of those who will be involved on the day. Once I have that and the answers from a questionnaire I’ll send over, we’re ready to start.
