Processes and procedures are essential for companies that want to grow quickly and scale profitably. They help ensure uniformity of tasks, improve onboarding and training of new employees, and keep everyone on the same page.
Because of this, Dan Zawacki believes that business owners need great processes in order to build great companies, scale, and achieve success. As he says, good processes will only get you an average company. However, documenting processes and procedures can often be difficult for entrepreneurs.
