In 2016, a movie with the name “The Founder” came out which depicted the journey of Ray Kroc, a traveling salesman, who went on to turn a family-owned McDonald’s restaurant into the successful empire that it is today.
If you have ever noticed the way a McDonald’s team operates, you must have observed that each person on the team is responsible for different activities. One person may be putting in fresh onions, one may be frying potatoes and yet another may be assembling your tasty burger.
How does this unique approach help? First, it saves you the trouble of, “Oops, we added burger sauce twice. I didn’t know he added it too.” Secondly, every person on the team is given the opportunity of honing a talent or skill they’re good at.
When there are 50 customers waiting in the queue or 15 projects in the pipeline, instead of having a chaotic work situation, everyone on the team knows exactly what to do.
That’s how the team at my agency Brucira works. Every person on our team handles a unique responsibility. Someone might be working on UX, someone on motion graphics, and yet another that purely handles illustrations.
This gives our team the much-needed freedom to work in silos and also helps the 3 villains- chaos, confusion, and misunderstandings stay away.
