Upgrade Your Work Life

Quickly revolutionize your team and company workflow and key business processes through the expertise of Priacta coaches and business analysts. Rely on decades of software, collaboration, and business process experience to identify core issues, find ideal tools and processes, and execute a successful adoption plan.

All Angles Considered

Group workflow, business processes, and communication are NOT the same as personal productivity. Total, Relaxed Organization (or David Allen's GTD or Franklin Covey) is a great start, to be sure. But although team workflow relies on similar principles, it adds many complexities, including:

  • Business objectives and strategy
    (How can you structure group workflow to support your real business objectives? How to naturally focus teams on what matters most instead of making people busier?)
  • Streamlining team communication to reduce errors and interruptions
    (How do you reduce reliance on ad hoc email and chat messages while enjoying the benefits?)
  • Shared project visibility
    (How does everyone see the big picture without needing to meet or ask all the time?)
  • Current business process support, rapid execution, ease of improvement, and clarity
    (What steps you really go through in adding and supporting a client? An order? A customer service request? What issues to you encounter?)
  • Document and knowledge sharing, group editing, delivery, cancellation, retention policies, and compliance
    (How do people receive, find, and contribute to documents in central document repository that complies with your needs and laws?)
  • Ensuring good delegation and team task visibility without micromanagement
    (How do you see when something is accepted and done without stifling personal initiative?)
  • Easy integration with personal workflows (Total, Relaxed Organization, GTD, or other systems)
    (How does the new team workflow connect with personal task lists without creating a lot of extra work?)
  • Integration with current tools (CRM, Salesforce, SharePoint, other cloud, industry-standard, or proprietary workflow tools)
    (What do you do when you already rely—or may need to rely—on other specialized tools?)
  • Smoothly transitioning from old processes to new ones
    (Your current processes are working, so how do you move to something new without upsetting your cash and production flows?)
  • Resistance to change and other human factors and adoption challenges
    (People resist change for good reasons. How do you ensure smooth adoption for everyone?)
  • Other technical considerations (cloud, interchange of data, APIs, security, backups)
    (How do you make it all work together, technically, while staying secure ans easy to support?)
  • Supporting and encouraging effective teamwork
    (A great workflow will increase engagement without creating more work for anyone. How do you get that?)
  • Expediting team meetings (shared-responsibility, highly-focused, great team engagement with zero-preparation!)
    (How can improved workflow help transform team meetings into exciting, focused, and productive discussions?)

 

How It's Done

  • We *confidentially* interview (phone, Internet) all key stakeholders, asking key questions and listening intently. Nothing said is ever shared directly. This allows us to tap into the expertise of management and front-line observers to gain the most relevant information possible. (People love this step. For the first time, sometimes, they feel like they can influence and are being heard on things they see as key issues.) This is similar to the Delphi Method, but without the typical drawbacks.
  • We gather all your concerns, constraints, and insights. These become "requirements" for the final solution. (We understand that you won't think of them all at once, so we keep listening and adding through the whole process.)
  • We learn or discover your real business objectives. Group workflow should quietly reinforce and support your business strategy at all levels. By focusing everyone on what matters most in a natural, relaxed way, progress becomes inevitable.
  • We assess your current realities. What apps and tools do you use now? Are they required? What are their capabilities or limitations? What platforms do different team members rely on? Do people work on the road or just in their offices? This helps us design the best plan requiring the least change for everyone.
  • We find patterns, connections, key indicators, and principles at play in your company's workflow from the information gleaned in the interviews.
  • We apply concepts from Theory of Constraints, Kaizen, Continual Improvement Process (CIP) and other proven methods to find the smallest changes with the biggest benefit. First you focus on those, then you work on the next smallest change with the largest benefit, and so on.
  • We tap into our deep expertise with state-of-the art team collaboration and workflow tools to identify, research, and suggest new tools or add-ons that meet your real needs. Examples: zero-programming shared cloud databases, online CRM systems, workflow automation and business process automation solutions, team collaboration systems, ERP, project management, and more.
  • We consider factors such as ease of adoption, scalability, expandability, customizability, 3rd-party community support, APIs, integration with other systems, data portability, data security, reliability, and much more.
  • We present and discuss our recommendations and reasons with the key leaders:
    • Recommended tool changes and why.
    • Recommended initial process changes and why.
  • We create an agile implementation road map (specific implementation steps, a general 30,000-foot view, designed to be implemented in an agile, iterative approach)
  • We help you begin executing that roadmap.

 

Deliverables

  • A preliminary plan (based on all information from all interviews—confidential details not disclosed).
  • An analyst-led group assessment of the preliminary plan with key leaders/adopters.

I have also been very impressed with his responsiveness and desire to listen to all ideas from his customers to make his products and services better and better over time.”

    Doing a Four Hour Training with Kevin was Best Investment

    “Pound for pound, training on Priacta and doing a four-hour session with Kevin was the best investment. I am still applying most of the concepts daily. Because of the skills I learned ... I am able to do more with less stress.”

  • Craig Kennedy

    Transformed a Once Struggling Business, Creating Raving Fans

    “Kevin Crenshaw has been an amazing mentor, coach, and leader while I have been working with New Law Business Model. Not only has his principle-based leadership allowed me to grow into my role as the Director of Content and Product, but I have seen how his leadership has transformed a once-struggling business into a profitable and effective one that over-delivers for its customers—helping to create raving fans and improve customer churn. It has been a pleasure working with him and I cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store for the business thanks to his dedication and leadership.”

  • Bill Dabney

    A Total System You Can Depend On

    “... a total system you can depend on and trust.... Thanks for giving me the help and encouragement to 'get things done' in a highly organized system.”

  • David Nemitz

    Effective

    “TRO is a personally effective system.”

  • Benjamin Sendrow

    Best Money You Can Spend

    “Kevin Crenshaw has changed my professional life. I am a busy congregational rabbi whose desk was always covered with papers, and whose stress level was always high. Kevin has taught me to be an organized person. My desk is clean and my stress level is down. He is a bargain compared to those providing similar coaching on "getting things done." Factor in the fact that you will succeed with Kevin and Priacta (how much have you spent on books or courses that did not help?) and you'll see that hiring Kevin is the best money you can spend.”

  • Alexis Neely

    Talk about a Turnaround Expert!

    “Talk about a turn-around expert! I've repeatedly gotten to the same point in each of my businesses, $1.5mm of revenue with a team that was pretty good, but was still dependent on me. I couldn't seem to break through.... Bringing in Kevin as CEO of the company was the game changer. Now, we are on track to at least double revenues this year and be ready for so much more in the future. Kevin has shown me what it means to be a true leader. Thank you Kevin.”
