Structure and Processes

Omniflit Posted on mån, juni 18, 2012 18:36:55

Every large company seeks for ISO certifications, continuous improvement among many others.

When comparing a big company with a startup you can see a list of differences in the sense of structure and processes. A startup is usually characterized by defining the corporate culture and through trial and error finding the best practices in the different processes that they do, such as sales, implementation, R&D, and of course the whole strategy and product development.

After a while a company starts repeating the same processes and the entrepreneurs should be aware of that and should start thinking about documenting them and preaching the example to new people that joins the venture.

Communication among teams and processes is critical at this point since it can lead to a defined and well organized organization, or into a chaotic and unstructured organization.

Omniflit is establishing processes and tools for external people to be able to understand the culture and way to operate.



The passion for entrepreneurship

The hours are flying by, and soon the first day at the office for the week has come to an end. I have a habit of forgetting time and space when I get excited about work or anything else I’m passionate about. I guess it’s a good habit to get lost in what you love! Today is the first day back at the office after the week in Gothenburg. It was a great week by the way, even if we would’ve preferred to go home with the trophy ;). Nevertheless, we felt like winners when we had our first article in Dagens Industri published last week. It’s hard to grasp that we had a full page in one of Swedens biggest business papers, so soon after we start working with InvivoPlay!

The event last week meant meeting a lot of interesting people. It was inspiring to meet other entrepreneurs and hear about their journey. I met a woman who participated in the competition last year and she told me what happened for her since she was a finalist. She told an amazing story, but the most inspiring part was the look in her eyes as she talked. She was so passionate and excited, even when she talked about the hard times, when she had to fight for her existence. She was literally glowing! It was really fun to meet someone with that strong passion for what they do. That’s the cool thing about entrepreneurs I think, that everyone is following their dreams and are ready to go through fire to get there. It’s a great crowd to be around!
