We all like to use the 'best' business in town, but there's a real trap if we mistake the busiest for the best. A business that starts out with a fabulous reputation, and wins customers fast off the back of it, can fall equally fast if they fail to manage their customer experience, and their customers' expectations.

How important is process to a business? From the smallest business to the most established brands in the world, having a well-defined business process means the difference between success and failure. Without it, things get lost, things don’t get done, things are forgotten.
