Strengthen the links


Everyone’s busy. The product developers, the sales team, legal, finance, customer support. Procurement are fighting the the good fight, despatch are stacking things up, and everyone in between is buried in the day-to-day struggles that made you hire them in the first place.

In all that busyness, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s going on. It’s easier not to notice what’s happening down the hall, to miss the wins and losses, to not even know that you can help them and they can help you. Ignorance is missing the links.

Your job – buried in your own busyness that makes up your day-to-day – is to link things together. To show how procurement affects despatch and can make their life easier. To link sales to legal to finance to product to everyone … and to strengthen those links.

Skippy strategy: All the parts, linked together.
