Website for streamlining processes.
The company I worked for at the time had no computer or internet in the office before I join the company. As I slowly changed things (remodeled the office and set up a computer) I later inquired with management about bringing other people onboard to let me focus on big picture items. Transfer work from the CEO to me.
I also approached management about having an online presence for recruiting and efficiency.
Out of the phone calls made to the office a good handful of them were about money. The idea was opportunity cost. In addition to centralizing and streamlining recruiting processes and casting a wider net for talent, the second idea was transparency. Crew members and their families could see what trip they were on and when payment was coming in from overseas. Ideally feeling more empowered and relax, calling less.
Results and what I learned: There were no results. Design is tied to selling and I failed to communicate my idea in metrics that CEO would understand. Problem, solution, goal, metrics and feedback. I also learned to seek out what someone values in terms of skill set. My boss valued technical skills such as metal working, sand blasting and painting. Computer skills and networking and creating systems wasn’t valued skill set.
