Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
AV Programming Associates, Inc. (AVPA) today announced the release of their first book, entitled Our Code: History, Practices and Processes of AVPA. The self-published book is a collection of stories, lessons learned, business best practices and historic insights. After more than thirteen years as President of AVPA, Matthew Grisafe wrote Our Code as a means to illuminate the company’s history and provide a backdrop to AVPA’s current processes and thinking.
“The lessons we've learned over the years are applicable to nearly all small businesses, not just Crestron programmers or those in the professional audiovisual industry,” said Matthew Grisafe, President of AVPA. “Some of the topics covered include the founding of AVPA, our experience launching a new venture on September 11th, 2001 and some of the attitudes we believe a successful business should maintain.”
“We employ well-established processes, and customers often ask why we stick to them. We’re obviously not perfect, but we know what works and how to avoid pitfalls as we navigate projects. The book hopefully provides a context for those processes, a background that helps people understand how we got where we are, and where we’d like to go moving forward. Almost every chapter includes a personal story that explains some of the challenges we’ve faced. We avoided being preachy, but the book offers insights that should be relevant to small business owners of all types. In that way, I expect Our Code may be both an interesting and useful read for a broad audience.”
