If you have worked within the cannabis industry for any amount of time, the first thing you realize is how fast the industry is moving. As one of the fastest growing industries in the world right now, there are a few key skills you need to have in order to survive. One of those skills, arguably the most important, is the ability to be agile and work with agile partners.
Across all verticals from seed to sale, the biggest problem operators have is delays in processes. Those moments in time when you are waiting on someone to perform for you in order for the process to move forward can severely hurt your business. Even if the delay is only a few hours, that time can add up fast. Finding partners that you can work with who are just as devoted to putting in the extra work to getting your product to market faster is imperative. With testing, for example, working with a qualified and efficient facility is the first step. The second step is seeing if their outlook on the industry aligns with yours. If they aren’t willing to put the same amount of energy into growing their business as you do with yours, how will they be able to accommodate your needs?
One of the main hurdles with working within a fast-paced industry is mistakes. We are all human, and knowing that mistakes will happen due to the speed in which everyone is moving will give you a major advantage. Knowing when to pick your battles is key to operating efficiently. Identify the problem as fast as possible, and find the fastest resolution to that problem.
As a testing company, it is our duty to the industry to maintain a strict level of honesty with our clients. We want all of our clients to succeed, and helping them through the chaotic cannabis landscape by informing them on changes in regulation as it applies to them is our passion and what we do best.
