In the initial phase, we struggled with several challenges like getting the skilled human resource, scaling up: increase our serving capacity while maintaining our delivery quality. However, we got the right team, books, podcasts, and mentors who showed us the way.

Improving the operation and scaling up is another challenge faced by all small service business owners – how to continually improve and develop their processes and products, ensure that the outcomes are real improvements and that there is a culture that is supportive of service and change.  An important challenge in this area is managing the increased complexity resulting from change. Change requests from customers are inevitable.
