How can you work out what’s worth automating?
Our DIY Task Audit Template is an actionable way to simplify your tasks and identify opportunities for automation. We’ll guide you through each aspect of your business tasks in detail.
This template is Overture’s go-to guide for conducting in-house audits designed to identify tasks that could be automated.
After copying this template into your Google account, you will need to fill out each column from A-H, describing each task’s nature, how often it occurs, how long it takes, how much it costs, whether it’s repetitive, whether it’s prone to human error, and the potential impact of automation. The template will then calculate an automation score, guiding you on which tasks should be considered for automation.
Filling out the requested information helps you understand your tasks better, their cost implications, their frequency, and their impact on your business. This detailed knowledge is crucial for identifying where automation can significantly improve your efficiency, reduce costs, and minimize errors.
Once you’ve identified the tasks for automation using the template, start by creating an action plan. This doesn’t have to be a huge step – start small, perhaps with the task that will have the most immediate impact, and gradually work your way through your list. Remember, the goal isn’t to automate everything overnight, but to start the journey towards working smarter, not harder.
Of course! This is just the first step. We’re always happy to help. Get in touch using our contact form here.
