According to Jeff Haden over at Inc.com, one of the 8 signs an employee is exceptional is how they interact with process..
Good employees follow processes. Great employees tweak processes. Exceptional employees find ways to reinvent processes, not just because they are expected to…but because they just can’t help themselves.
Being process minded is a good thing…but putting that mind to work reinventing processes out of sheer passion, is what we sometimes call a process geek! Which reminds me of an Escher quote:
We adore chaos because we love to produce order.
Problems are opportunities in disguise! A principle of continuous improvement.
