Professional Plate Spinning

When we uncover a client’s marketing operations challenges, all too often we see that they are busy spinning plates.

You know what it’s like.

You set one job going, skip over to the next, give a campaign a swizz and hop to the next project. Some take significant energy and concentration to spin and to keep them spinning. Others just need a little tickle every now and again.

Then, when they’re all beautifully twirling you daren’t walk away! If you take your eyes off just one of your plates for too long, you may not see if it is about to topple. Any distance from the project may just mean you can’t catch it in time. The thing about spinning plates is, if one falls it could bring others crashing down with it, and leaving it to chance is a risky business.

It’s the same for us, so we have developed tools to help spin plates more effectively. Which should you spin first? How fast should you spin them? Which are the heaviest and most expensive? You may be keeping your eye on the biggest one, but which is the most important?

One way we make sure our plates spin together at ProCo is our 90 day planning process. Every member of the team has a clear direction for them personally, for their job role, and for their client deliverables, ensuring that we have complete alignment in what we are trying to achieve for ourselves and also our customers desired outcome.

If you always keep an eye on your plan, you will spot a little wobble long before it becomes a crash.

Feel free to give us a call on 0114 272 8888 and we’ll gladly share our process.
