One of the most important tasks of the company is to determine the best ways to do things, and then to train people to do them in that best way. Each area of the company has key processes, and the best companies have these defined into a series of compact, impactful steps and checklists. Often, processes give a company a competitive advantage as the best ways to do things often become differentiating activities.
