Most businesses lack adequate systems to get things done efficiently and effectively in their businesses. Anything and everything, from how the phone is answered to processing refunds to running successful events can, and should be systematized, and standards should be put in place so everyone knows what is expected of them and their job position.
Systemizing your business doesn’t have to mean you are inflexible and militant in the way you run your business. Instead, it means you have processes in place for handling the day-to-day operations of your business, and that everyone (clients, vendors, and employees alike) know what is expected of them, what is and is not acceptable in your business, and how they will be treated.
Systems are the “this is how we do things here” information everyone needs to know.
Systems actually make your work environment better, especially for you, the entrepreneur and business owner, because with systems in place, you never have to worry about what will happen if an employee quits, or it you have to fire them, because your business won’t be people based, but systems based.
Using systems allows your business to continue along on the same pace even if one of your key people leave, because the new person can come in and learn the systems you already have in place and quickly get up to speed on their job duties and responsibilities. Knowing what to do and how to do them will allow the new employee to be functioning as a valued employee in no time at all.
Without systems in place and procedures to follow, your staff and employees will make up their own ways of doing things – because they were forced to do so – it was the only way for things to get done. You now have systems by default, and they might not be the systems you want implemented. These default systems and procedures for getting things done may be inefficient and may be costing you a lot of money.
Systems are the backbone of all businesses. It’s what makes them run – for the good or for the bad – it’s really all about business systems.
