Summary

Phillip Kirst, founder of Spice Media, joins Daniel to talk about efficiency. Everything from starting small to measuring and evaluating, to fostering process improvement from your team.

Key Takeaways

  • Efficiency is ever-evolving. Experience and heuristics help find efficiencies in your process.
  • Low hanging fruit or big wins aren't the only way to get efficient. Small improvements in the aggregate can have huge impacts on overall savings.
  • Seconds saved on several thousand pictures have a big return.
  • Commercial studios have to balance many factors that dictate how efficient they can be. Client-specific needs can change the calculus.
  • There isn't ONE thing you need to do to achieve an efficient process. But it does start with selecting the right team. A curious team is a team that creatively solves problems to achieve shared goals.
  • You cannot manage you do not measure.
  • Getting data isn't only important, but how you collect the data makes a difference.
