Systemic Change: How Formalizing Processes Increases Efficiency – an NGFN webinar

July 23, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm


Any business can benefit from increases in efficiency. For low-margin businesses (like food hubs) efficient operation is truly the only way to succeed.

Although there is no “magic bullet” for making your business optimally efficient, formalizing and documenting the jobs and operations the business performs has been shown time and again to save time and money. From faster training of new hires, to decreasing costly errors, to increasing overall quality (ensuring happy customers!) taking a systems approach to your business positively effects your bottom line.

This webinar will introduce how one might incorporate systems to bring your food business to the next level of sophistication, and efficiency. Following an introduction to systems, systems thinking, and its application to business, we will hear two very different case studies to get you thinking of the wide variety of applications. One case study is on achieving third-party food safety certification, the other on systematizing employee training.
