Production

Except for the collections process, which comes after the fact, all the areas of expertise have a direct bearing on practice production… which should be targeted at an increase of 15% per year. The most successful growth strategies therefore depend on the smooth orchestration of skills in every aspect of practice operation. This means that, as each new system goes online, there will be a synergistic effect, and growth can become exponential once your overall improvements reach critical mass.  

The following steps, though arranged in logical order, are not meant to be pursued like numbered instructions. In reality, you and your staff will be moving back and forth between these reas as you progress toward your goals.
