BOD™ LIVE | Your Operations Manual

Being convinced that systems are the solution to nearly every challenge you face in business is one thing. Creating those systems and writing them down is another thing entirely. The BOD™ Operations Manual took years to complete and we are thrilled that so many members are using it in their business to support the systems they have learned through membership. 

Come prepared to share your best practices when it comes to implementing, streamlining, and delegating systems with the support of an Operations Manual.

BOD™ LIVE | Your A Team

Every design practice, from sole proprietorship to multi-employee operation relies on the experience, strength and talent of others to complete even the smallest projects. Professional trades, contractors, suppliers, artisans, manufacturers and vendors allow you to consistently deliver on your brand promise, satisfying clients, increasing profitability and growing your reputation.

How you manage these relationships is critical to your success. Let's talk about the BOD™ Trade Partner Agreement and why a written set of rule helps to build trusted relations with your trades. Come prepared to share on the job experiences, what works and what doesn't when it comes to managing your trades, and get guidance for current challenges you are facing.
