The 4 M’s of Process Improvement

Every business has it’s own story of growth and success. Ours can be found in identifying the 4M process to sustainable growth.

At New Frontier, we understand the importance of process improvement in driving sustainable growth because we’ve lived it out.

That’s one of the main reasons we now utilize the 4M process – Mindset, Management, Marketing, and Money – to help entrepreneurs like you overcome obstacles and propel your business forward.

Mindset: Think Like An Owner

The first step in our 4M process is mindset. As a business owner, it’s crucial to shift your thinking from working in your business to working on it.

Think, for example, about the scope of work your small business does.

A task-focused management style emphasizes the completion of individual assignments or activities. It involves breaking down larger goals into smaller, actionable items that need to be accomplished.

However, a process-focused management looks at the broader system of interconnected activities and workflows within the organization. It involves designing, optimizing, and managing the sequence of steps that lead to the desired outcome.

Both are important, the tasks need to get done however business owners that fail to add-in process improvement alongside their task management will ultimately get stuck. How? Because they’ll simply be employees who work for themselves and not a true business owner.

Our executive coaching services focus on retraining your mindset, empowering you to take a strategic approach to process improvement and business management.

Management: Leading On Purpose

Look, we get it. Labor law compliance, Human Resources, and team building aren’t often the reasons you signed up to be a business owner.

Yet effective management is essential for driving growth and fostering a productive work environment. We’ve seen that many small business owners struggle with leadership and employee management, including the employee lifecycle of your organization.

This leads to inefficiencies and roadblocks and most dangerously, out-of-compliance actions that could carry steep financial penalties.

Our dedicated HR staff knows state and federal compliance and is here to help you navigate those murky waters so you can get back to what you do best: running your business.

Our Human Resource consulting services provide the support and guidance you need to lead with purpose, from legal compliance to staffing fulfillment. By implementing streamlined processes and clear communication channels, you can navigate organizational changes with confidence.

Marketing: Getting Known, Found, and Talked About Online

In today’s digital age, a strong online presence is non-negotiable for small businesses. We often tell our clients that they live in Google’s world and need to figure out how to get discovered in it.
