Systems & Processes for Geochemist

The path towards better systems and processes in your Geochemist role starts with mapping out your most important business processes. Being able to see your business processes laid out visually helps you to collaborate with your team on how to improve and grow. By repeating this collaboration process, you’ll develop a culture of continuous improvement that leads to a growing business and streamlined systems and processes that increase customer & staff experience.

To help you start mapping out your processes, we’ve developed a sample flow for a Geochemist Workflow Map that you can use with your team to start clarifying your processes and then run Business Experiments so you can build a better business.

Workflow Map For A Geochemist

1. Initial consultation: The geochemist meets with the client to understand their specific needs and requirements for the project.
2. Sample collection: The geochemist collects samples from the field or receives samples from the client for analysis.
3. Sample preparation: The collected samples are processed and prepared for analysis, which may involve cleaning, grinding, or other necessary procedures.
4. Laboratory analysis: The prepared samples are subjected to various analytical techniques, such as spectroscopy, chromatography, or microscopy, to determine their chemical composition and properties.
5. Data interpretation: The geochemist analyzes the obtained data and interprets the results to understand the geological processes or environmental conditions related to the samples.
6. Report generation: Based on the data interpretation, the geochemist prepares a comprehensive report summarizing the findings, including any recommendations or conclusions.
7. Client presentation: The geochemist presents the report to the client, explaining the results and discussing any implications or further actions required.
8. Feedback and revisions: The geochemist collects feedback from the client and incorporates any necessary revisions or additional analysis into the report.
9. Implementation of recommendations: If applicable, the geochemist may assist the client in implementing any recommended actions or strategies based on the findings.
10. Follow-up and continuous improvement: The geochemist maintains communication with the client to monitor the effectiveness of the implemented recommendations and identify opportunities for further improvement in their services

Business Growth & Improvement Experiments

1. Name: Implementing automated data analysis software
Description: This experiment involves investing in and implementing automated data analysis software to streamline the process of analyzing geological data. This software can help in quickly identifying patterns, trends, and anomalies in large datasets, reducing the time and effort required for manual analysis.
Expected Outcome: The expected outcome of this experiment is improved efficiency in data analysis, leading to faster and more accurate results. This will enable the geochemist to make informed decisions more quickly and allocate their time and resources more effectively.

2. Name: Collaborating with other research institutions
Description: This experiment involves establishing collaborations with other research institutions, universities, or industry partners to share resources, expertise, and data. By collaborating with others in the field, the geochemist can access a wider range of samples, equipment, and knowledge, which can lead to more comprehensive research and a broader understanding of geological processes.
Expected Outcome: The expected outcome of this experiment is enhanced research capabilities and access to a larger network of experts. Collaborations can lead to joint publications, increased funding opportunities, and the ability to tackle more complex research questions, ultimately raising the profile and impact of the geochemist’s work.

3. Name: Developing a standardized data collection protocol
Description: This experiment involves creating a standardized data collection protocol for fieldwork and laboratory experiments. By establishing clear guidelines and procedures, the geochemist can ensure consistency in data collection, minimize errors, and improve the reproducibility of their research.
Expected Outcome: The expected outcome of this experiment is improved data quality and reliability. A standardized data collection protocol will enable the geochemist to compare and integrate data from different sources more effectively, leading to more robust conclusions and reducing the need for repeated experiments.

4. Name: Implementing remote sensing techniques
Description: This experiment involves exploring and implementing remote sensing techniques, such as satellite imagery or aerial surveys, to gather geological data over large areas. Remote sensing can provide valuable information on land cover, mineralogy, and geological structures, allowing the geochemist to identify potential areas of interest for further investigation.
Expected Outcome: The expected outcome of this experiment is increased efficiency in data collection and expanded research capabilities. Remote sensing techniques can cover larger areas in less time compared to traditional fieldwork, enabling the geochemist to identify new research opportunities and allocate their resources more effectively.

5. Name: Investing in advanced laboratory equipment
Description: This experiment involves investing in advanced laboratory equipment, such as mass spectrometers or X-ray diffractometers, to enhance the geochemist’s analytical capabilities. Upgrading equipment can improve the accuracy, precision, and speed of analyses, enabling the geochemist to obtain more detailed and reliable data.
Expected Outcome: The expected outcome of this experiment is improved analytical capabilities and higher-quality data. Advanced laboratory equipment can provide more accurate measurements, detect trace elements or isotopes, and offer a wider range of analytical techniques, leading to more comprehensive and impactful research findings
