Employees are leaving their work in record numbers. Frustrated, burned out and chasing other more lucrative and less stressful opportunities. In this highly competitive job market the solution doesn't lie with new hires. It lies with improving your processes, better integrations, more efficient tools and outsourced solutions. Allowing you to operate with a lower headcount and getting more productivity and improving the work experience for the staff you have.  


For more than two decades Derrick Mains (Founder of Playbook) has advised hundreds of businesses and his experience is that nearly every business is riddled with inefficiency. On average he finds that even PROFITABLE businesses are usually less than 60% efficient in what they do. Outdated processes, lack of integration, loopholes and a general lack of focus on reducing wasted time, effort and money. YOUR MONEY. 

40% of
is waste
