There's a lot of ideas I'm tossing around but I have the bones of the project down. To get into an operations position I want to prove I've got what it takes, I'm going to show my operation skills and make something better.
The basics of my project is going to require me to make some kind of manual for a business. (Whether or not they choose to use it is their choice.) Using tools like Trello, Asana or anything else I find useful, I'll then take those tools to create a better operating system for the positions at the business.
One option to add to this project is to interview a few successful people about they operate their businesses. What skills, tools, and techniques do they use? I can then take those ideas and apply them to my project. I think taking advice directly from professionals will show how excited and willing I am to grow.
Originally, my plan was to interview five businesses and ask for their top five software programs. I thought it would be a cool idea to learn the different software programs and write a post for each one. But, I started to think about how valuable that would be. I thought maybe it would be better to have skills, know some software, and then create a better system for a real business.
These are the ideas that are going through my mind at the moment. I feel like I'm on the right track and in the end I'm going to learn and gain a lot from the project.
