And the B-side of this question and of the article: What do we understand by perfecting a mistake? Automating tasks or processes that are wrong and/or old, whether we are aware of it or not, will only make mistakes and errors in our procedures happen again and again. Moreover, investing resources in automating them will only mean that the error will be repeated even more quickly. This is what we call perfecting the error and to avoid it, the best thing to do is to opt for a radical change in the digital processes of your business by adopting quality technological solutions. How? With specialists to help you in the process. specialists to help you in the improvement process, as is the case of easyap. Let's get to it.
What are continuous improvement processes?
It is said that life is a journey along which people never stop learning. Along the way, we go through certain experiences from which we acquire knowledge and learn how to cope. However, the first time we are confronted with an unfamiliar situation, we do not always know how to solve it or what tools to use to do so.
Sometimes, through ignorance or lack of practice, we make mistakes. Or, simply, we adopt a solution that is useful for a specific problem or moment but which, with the passage of time, becomes outdated. This is nothing wrong, as it is human, but it is wrong not to remedy it. Consciously continuing with that error, with that maladapted solution and, above all, investing resources in it to "improve" and automate it would be what we call perfecting the error.
We are in a historical and social context in which the Internet has changed the world. Both personally and professionally, everything is radically different from what it was just a decade ago and challenges arise that a few years ago were unimaginable. Management and tasks that used to be manual can now be carried out 100% online, as part of this digital transformation transformation we are undergoing.
However, many companies and managers are afraid and dizzy to make the leap into the new paradigm. For this reason, we find companies trying to to adapt to the demands of the digital world and others that, by means of emergency solutions, are momentarily perfecting errors (to put it colloquially, plugging holes). However, if we want to move forward, are we clear about how to do it, and what procedures will lead to continuous improvements for our organisation?
At easyap, a company born from a vision that combines technology and management, we understand that continuous improvement processes in companies are those actions and strategies that seek the following objectives:
- Directly improve the quality of a quality of a product or service.
- Optimising the resources (mainly economic and time) used to improve a product or service.
- To help the company grow and keep up to date with the latest trends. in line with the latest trends.
Therefore, if we are talking about optimising the products and processes of today's companies, adapting to the online world is a must. But how? By implementing entirely new services that we do not know or are not sure how they work, or by using momentary solutions that serve only occasionally and automate a failed system to speed it up? By breaking with the status quo to grow, or by living by perfecting a mistake?
In short, how to implement a continuous improvement system in a company? how to implement a continuous improvement system in a company? It depends on the context and the moment. What is clear is that, in this new digital landscape, progress and continuous improvement processes are continuous improvement processes are based on going digital. Let yourself be advised and accompanied in this aspect and exploit the advantages of the various technological solutions that are coming onto the market.

The answer to this question will depend on several factors. The sector, the market, the product or service you market. However, in this day and age, where everything is moving fast and developing in or towards digital, one thing is very clear: either you adapt to the online world or you run the risk of disappearing. Moreover, it is very likely that your competitors are already doing so and that the market is demanding it of you.

This is what we call perfecting the bug. That's why solutions like ours, based on the SaaS model, will save you from cost and effort overruns.

It is better to take a turn, a leap and go for a radical change towards digital. There, having the best online solutions and services is vital for any company that wants to survive and grow.
