What can your business do with more in-house technical skill?

WAIT!  

Before you answer, take a few minutes to really think about it…

  • Which processes currently requiring your team’s time can be automated?
  • How much money can you save by developing or managing tech heavy projects yourself?
  • What could you do to improve your product or workflows with more in-house technical capabilities?
  • How many meetings can be avoided if everyone understood fundamental digital knowledge?

Okay. Again, what can your business do with more in-house technical skill?
