Welcome to The Operations Guide!
My name is Luke Thompson. I currently hold the position of Chief Operating Officer of ActionVFX.com, a company that specializes in creating visual effects stock footage.
The company itself is just over 6 years old, and I've had the amazing opportunity to be a part of it from the very beginning. We currently employ around 20 positions fulltime across the globe, while continuing to expand and grow our team.
I have learned so much while growing into my current position and am always discovering new ways to automate workflows that help scale the business.
This website is a space where I'll be sharing the knowledge and tools I've acquired in hopes that you will also be able to benefit from my experiences.
Throughout my time developing my skills, I had a really hard time finding a community of people that did the same thing I did. I often found myself meeting with people running businesses in very different roles to be able to learn from and had to discover any helpful tools on my own.
The goal of this website is to provide people in operational roles resources for implementing new systems, processes, and workflows to achieve the overall goal of helping them scale and grow their businesses.
The content you'll find here will be geared towards those in positions such as Operations Managers, Project Managers, COO's, etc. But it definitely won't stop there. If you find yourself in any type of role that manages people or creates improvements for your company, you will find value here!
I'm extremely eager and excited to share what I've learned with you. If you ever have any specific questions or if there's anything I can assist you with, I'm very easy to get in touch with and would be more than happy to help. :)
