Re-engineer Inefficient Processes and Eliminate Unnecessary Work

Re-engineering processes reduces costs and the time it takes to perform, improves service delivery and increases quality.

Another major component of building a scalable SG&A base is to eliminate processes that don’t add value and streamline those that do as much as possible. The following questions can help determine whether an activity adds value:

  • Could this activity be eliminated if some prior activity were done differently?
  • Could this activity be eliminated without compromising the quality of our product or service?
  • Is this activity required by a customer, and will that customer pay for it?
