Monday - Monday is the busiest day of the week
Orders from Saturday, Sunday and Monday need to be processed, made and posted out. We make all products to order, so speed and efficiency are critical. We practice LEAN Manufacturing so all orders are made to a timeline and we look for improvements every day. Following COVID and the rise in costs, it's even more important to get everything perfect because customers now more than ever want more for their money..
The FIRST PART OF THE MORNING…. (This is a daily set of jobs so i’ll only mention them once)
So I am at 7am.
- I Design orders
- Prepare for morning briefing meeting
- Look at the 2 minute improvements that I have made and what needs highlighted.
Going to CUT…(still before 9am)
-Once designed we cut the orders / handwrite the ones needed doing and vinyl others.
-the team arrives and we set out the priorities and outline the jobs for the day. Team work is so so important with past issues like communication having to be ironed out to improve our service and quality of products.
The rest of the morning is about managing the environment and helping decision making where needed.
The second half of the day heads over to Marketing and Product management. This is where I’ll either meet with Sam or plan out the next steps in the different projects we have on, one being the 365 days of giveaways.
