Extreme Automation

by Feb 1, 2023

I see some people take automation to the extreme.

I am one of those people. I’m so into automating business processes. Heck I even named my company after it: AutomateValue!

One of the dangers of doing automation to the extreme, is that you lose sight of ROI.

Don’t spend two days automating something to save a couple of seconds of a process that runs once a week.

Don’t automate stuff that you do once or twice a year.

It’s not worth it.

(Unless you learn from it and can sell the knowledge πŸ˜‰)

is it worth your time
