It is imperative that you create a systemised business to grow and become successful. Business structures are critical to developing an asset that will generate the most significant return on your investment, establishing the structure and order required to manufacture your product, and producing reliable results whenever promised. Although there are many ways to approach the systemisation process, not all of them are successful. When attempting to systemise a company, many mistakes are made.
Having No Strategic Plan
If you want to effectively systematise your company, you need to know what you are building, why you are building it and where you want to go with it.
You need to write down your business goals and what you want to do in the next 5 years. Getting this image in your mind will allow you to prioritise the creation, documentation and implementation of the system based on the business effect that they will have
Looking for a “One Size Fits All” System
Unfortunately , you can’t take anything off a shelf and have it fit your business automatically.
You have to configure them for your specific company to enable your systems to function. They have to deal with your dream, with your needs. You have to design your systems to yield the results you want
You can’t repeat a system correctly unless it’s clearly documented. Although you may have a system that has naturally developed over time that works really well if it is not written down, how can you train others to produce the same results?
Documenting your processes makes sure everybody does the job the same way, every time. Documenting your processes is critical to your success.
Lack of Implementation
Implementation of your systems is essential if you want to truly have a systemized company.
It isn’t enough to just document your processes; you have to execute them. As Peter Drucker once said, “Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately deteriorate into hard work.”
Leaving Out Quantifications
You must have clearly defined and quantifiable results when you document your systems. This will enable you to know how to evaluate whether the system is working or not. It is the only way to determine if the system you’ve put in place is sufficient.
Systemizing your business is an essential part of building a successful business. Avoiding these common mistakes can make your journey to having a systemized business easier and more successful.
