My First Foray into System Set-Up
Flashback to 2015 when I embarked on the construction of my first system. At the time, I was part of a wonderful wedding venue located in the breathtaking Ribble Valley. With its incredible capacity to host up to 200 people, this venue was nothing short of spectacular.
Operating in Lancashire, the venue was a popular choice for couples. We hosted about four to five weddings a week, each with its unique set of requirements and guest lists. Unsurprisingly, chicken and sticky toffee pudding were among the most favored menu items.
The Need for Efficiency
Despite the picturesque setting and the joy of facilitating these beautiful moments, I found myself constantly bogged down by the minutiae of counting chicken orders and sticky toffee puddings for each event. Deep down, I knew my time could be better utilized, which led me to question the efficiency of our existing process.
I spent countless hours every week sifting through orders, looking for anomalies, and ensuring everything was accurately tallied. This repetitive task hinted at an underlying problem in our workflow and sparked my curiosity about the world of systems and processes.
The Birth of My First System
I may not have known much about system set-up at the time, but I was determined to find a solution. With this resolve, I delved into the world of Excel, constructing a system that would automate our counting process and ensure increased efficiency.
This system that I built was designed to automatically count the number of chicken orders and sticky toffee pudding desserts. And guess what? They still use that Excel system today! It eased the burden on our team and put some responsibility back onto the client to manage their own counts.
The Impact of Process Optimization
The transformation was remarkable! Suddenly, those countless hours previously spent on mundane tasks were freed up, allowing me to focus on other pressing matters. It was a simple solution that demonstrated to me just how crucial process optimization is to business growth.
This experience was pivotal in shaping my understanding and appreciation of automation. It showed me that there are ways to create systems for every part of your business, no matter how trivial the task may seem.
