Running a tight ship in your business is paramount to being successful. The devil is in the details. By letting the details fall by the wayside you will find that your business is not as profitable as it could be. Also as Michael E. Gerber, author of The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It, states “A business that looks orderly says to your customer that your people know what they’re doing.”
If your desire is to have a dynamic, efficient, quality-driven business, then structure and systems are essential. There is the belief that working on your business not just in your business is of significant importance. So, by creating processes, you ensure that you leave nothing to chance. Systems produce predictable results. Lack of structure and the absence of clearly defined processes will most definitely produce inconsistency in how work is done.
This is what leadership is about. Whether you are leading yourself or a large team of people there needs to be processes in place to ensure accountability and standards of performance. A deliberate and structured approach to business in other words, running a tight ship, increases your success exponentially.
So what does this look like?
