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 Parliamentary Counsel 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.
