Interior Designer in San Diego:
"Standards Operating Procedures."
Every company should have standards and procedures on how to do things in order to have uniformity and understandably - especially within the design industry where the scale of each project vary from one another.
Administrative Forms, CAD templates, Specification / Cut sheets, Design presentations, etc., should already be standardized depending on the project scale or type. This would- not only save countless hours on end but also dedicate valuable time elsewhere.
PROPER TRAINING. All companies SHOULD afford the time and effort to, not only properly train each candidate, but to SUFFICIENTLY do so.
