Do I need a VA, Project Manager or Operations Manager…or all three? — Part 1

In this episode, Barbara and Matt take a closer look at what really defines the role of a Virtual Assistant, Project Manager and Operations Manager and when you may need all three roles in your business.

During this episode, we explore all three roles and the importance of business owners taking the time to delineate each role to ensure the lines are not blurred in order to avoid any problems arising.

Some of the areas covered include:

Understanding the skill sets required for each role and ensuring you have the best person for the job
Determining whether your VA can confidently carry out the tasks you require or if you need to bring in a Project Manager and/or Operations Manager to fill the skill gap
Planning for the future and ensuring you bring the right people onboard at the right time, and not when it’s too late
The importance of seeing each member of your team as investment, rather than an expense
