Systems & Processes for Glass Designer

The path towards better systems and processes in your Glass Designer 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 Glass Designer 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.
