Nancy Becher’s Don’t Wait Til Pigs Fly

Episode 34: Processes, Strategies and Champions — oh my with Donnie Boivin

October 10, 2019

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning. “ ​–​ Benjamin Franklin

According to, “A business process is a series of steps performed by a group of stakeholders to achieve a concrete goal. Each step in a business process denotes a task that is assigned to a participant. It is the fundamental building block for several related ideas such as Business Process Management, Process Automation, etc.”

What does that mean in English, the English that most of us speak and not “bizlish”? Every company has something they do to make money. For myself, and this podcast it goes like this: I have to find someone to interview. I have to set up the interview, I have to do the interview. Then, we have to turn it into a format that the platforms will accept, we have to add the intro and outro, we have to share it with the platform, add text, and let people know when it’s live. Now that is a loosely defined process. We can just do it – but knowing me, I’ll forget half of it unless I have a standardized procedure that helps me make sure it is done the same each time, it is done right each time, and I don’t have to worry about whether I goofed up or not. That means then that time is saved and thus money is saved and everyone is happy. Doesn’t that sound like a good deal?

In today’s chat with Donnie Boivin, he and I talk about processes, strategies and challenges that come up both when we don’t have and sometimes when something we do have isn’t working right. Get out your pens and paper, take notes and implement these words of wisdom. You won’t regret it.
