Generally when people try to organise work, it gets part way there, but not enough for everyone to trust it. It then inevitably breaks down & gets retried over and over, each time with people getting more jaded.

In this final episode of our series called Building a Scalable Business that Doesn’t Involve You, Justin Smith of Work Management Tools, and I tackled the challenge of what really needs to be done and how high the standard is needed to make office project management actually work & how it can streamline your operations.

Great work Matt with all the podcasts and the site shed facebook community group. The amount of information that you can learn for free in this space is unbelieveable.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
