What are your thoughts on using systems and documenting processes in your business? Do you see them as a hindrance from your core business functions? Are you hesitant to implement them for fear of changing too much too quickly?

As Carl Smith built and grew his digital agency, he viewed systems as unnecessary because of the frequent changes that were happening in his industry. Carl and his team preferred moving with those changes in a bid to stay up-to-date with their competitors, and this prevented them from documenting their processes. Eventually, however, they realized the value of implementing efficient systems and overcame the challenges in their business by creating, documenting, and consistently updating their processes.

In this episode of the Systems Simplified podcast, Adi Klevit interviews Carl Smith, the Owner of the Bureau of Digital, about how he uses systems to build a community of digital leaders. Carl discusses his introduction to the Bureau of Digital, how the community has evolved over the past few years, and the efficient systems and processes that help the community thrive. Stay tuned.
