Behind every successful business is a successful set of systems.
Systems are the engine room that makes all of the wheels turn to move something forwards. “All Systems Go” is what we call having all of your automation, processes, and procedures in place to have success.
Whether it’s launching a new product or service, executing a project plan, or running daily operations efficiently, finding your own state of “All Systems Go” could be the missing link that will enable your business to perform at a higher level.
Are your systems working for you?
Ask yourself these questions:
- Are my systems working efficiently?
- Do I have a system for every process?
- Have I automated everything I can?
- Am I reviewing my systems regularly?
When everything is set up correctly, you might be able to save 10, 20, or even 40 hours on how operations run now. What could you do with that time? When systems are all in place, plenty of new opportunities can arise.
Working Towards your “All Systems Go”
Changing your systems may seem like a big move – not just for your business, but for you as well. But once you’ve got it sorted and set up, your business will be operating at a whole new level.
Every operation is different, which means each plan will be unique. Here are some tips to help you get started about how to think about improving your systems.
Change can be a challenge for some people. Improving systems can mean a big change – in environment, resources, people, tech, and even mindset. Be open to what’s possible and the efficiencies that change could bring.
Your existing systems (or lack of them) might have been used for a long time. Events and situations can change. Make sure you review them annually to ensure they’re still relevant and working correctly. Don’t just leave them be.
Big picture vs details
Many business owners and managers are big-picture thinkers or have had to step into big-picture shoes. It’s hard to think at the top-level and operate the details all at once. Automate or delegate the details so you can keep your mind clear.
Often the best way to improve processes is to get support from others. Growing your team lets you focus on leading your business to success while also creating job opportunities for your community. Internships are great to get help with admin tasks while giving back and helping others to gain new experiences and new skills.
Getting your systems integrated will save your sanity, time, and money while maintaining the quality of your services. It’s always worth the investment.
