Don’t get me wrong: designing educational things is awesome. However, most organisations rely on training (in all its forms) to compensate for unclear, overly complicated processes and business software that is hard to use.
Now, instead of just visualising and explaining systems and processes after they are designed, I’m using my skill set to help teams visualise and design better systems and processes using workflow automation.
If that sounds interesting or valuable to you, then check out what I’m doing next.
