What Can You Do
If a baseball team is built on talent, so is your printing business. How much time is spent in acquisition of potential staff members? How much time is spent setting achievable goals and communicating those goals? What kind of scoreboard and standings are available to the “players” on your team? Is winning defined? How much time is invested in coaching (or training) talented people to become better? What are you doing as the print shop owner to become better? Do you have a team or simply a group of people who work for the same printing organization?
You have to set your goals and measure your success if you want to have a winning team.
