Be a Process Leader

Steve Hoffman's company, Modern Postcard, is the result of decades of continuous improvement.  Steve started in business as a company of one and today he has hundreds of employees and thousands of customers.

Carlsbad, California: Hattie introduces us to Steve Hoffman, " of the best process leaders we have ever met."  Modern Postcard is technology-and-systems driven which has enabled it to grow steadily especially since the *internet is becoming ubiquitous  (*intentionally not capitalized).

When Steve Hoffman of Modern Postcard wants to work on improving systems, he has brainstorming sessions with small groups of employees. He’s making a very strong statement about how much he wants the creative ideas of his entire staff by setting aside a time and place for the sole purpose of hearing them.

Constraint analysis: What's holding things up? Where's the weakest link? This first process that Steve tackled sounds simple.

Three Key Business Issues:
(1)  Go Global.   (2) Find Your Tribe. (3) Be honest.

The world really has become a very small place. And, with 7.5 billion people, there is a huge population of people just like you. Find them. Also, you have to go global before attempting to take on the universe.  Break free of any limited worldview, then begin working on an integrated Universe View. The larger, more integrated your view of life, the more creative and productive you and your teams become.  Above all, keep your integrity intact.
