A great tool
“How to write effective company policy is a great tool to make things run smoothly in our organization and people are not waiting for the orders for every situation and jamming my lines.
Policies would be in place for all aspects of the business. The staff would know it that they exist and they need to be followed strictly. This prevents staff from setting their own policies and taking wrong decisions which are counter productive and causing chaos.
It prevents my lines from being jammed all the time. Staff does not have to run to me for approval of every decision out there.”
Dr. Parker spent 20 years growing and running a successful AAHA accredited veterinary practice. In addition to his veterinary degree he trained professionally as an executive and practice manager. He and his team now help practice owners evolve "owner-independent" practices using a data-driven, clinical, approach(similair to patient case management). This style of practice runs independently of the owner, allowing them to focus on their DVM hat. And one that ultimately allows them to get more out of their practice and more out of their life.
