Are You Ready To Scale Sustainably And With Ease Of Business Systems?

Business systems can throw up a lot of pushback from many business owners.

Because it’s something that they know that they need, but it’s something that they associate with being really, really time-consuming.

1. Scalability

So removing yourself as the bottleneck. So that system doesn’t always come back around to you. If you are creating a business system where you can delegate to your team, but then approvals and everything else is coming back round to you. You have a bottleneck to yourself, which means that you have traded, you’re implementing an execution role in your business, for the management role. And you don’t want to be in that place.

2. Consistent

So consistent the entire way through. This is how you document your processes. This effectively a system for creating a system. And you may laugh at that.

3. Sustainability

make sure that they are sustainable. This is something that a lot of people fall down on. And that’s creating business systems that aren’t able to be maintained easily. You need to maintain your business systems, it’s like everything in business. In order to have a well-oiled engine, you need to make sure that you are looking after that engine, you cannot expect an engine, it’s like a car if you just bought a car and let it sit on the drive didn’t do anything with it didn’t maintain it, it’s going to eventually fall apart.

4. Simple

We over-complicate things as business owners. And we do that because we’re overwhelmed and we make decisions and we’re doing things without really having that headspace to think them through. And sometimes we can overcomplicate things, and it takes us a step back to realise that we have done that. But making sure that your business systems are kept simple is paramount in order to make sure that they are going to be used.

5. Specific

The number of times that people create these business systems and processes and they’re not specific. They’re not specific with responsibilities with who you’re assigning processes to a lot of the time they don’t even have these processes assigned to anyone.

6. Corporate

And what I mean by that is, many of us come from a corporate background. I personally do. And although having business systems that would really stand out incorporate as well as small businesses. It means that you’re not going to be able to easily sustain your business systems. And they’re going to be over complicated.

And it is done easily by outsourcing that particular business system or process.

I hope you’ve found that really, really helpful and I am asking you Have You Implemented At Least These 6 Tips In Your Business Systems? And if you haven’t incorporated at least these six tips, I would really, really, really recommend that you do that side. Because these, to me, are the foundations of making sure that your business systems are going to work with you and they’re not going to fall apart.

And I can’t say loudly enough how much I really think if you don’t have scalable business systems in your business.

Now, you need to make that a priority. Because without them, you are really going to become stuck in this situation where you’re lacking in scaling and you’re really struggling and you’re making things really hard on yourself. And we don’t want to be in that place.
