How To Systemitize Your Business

Your business, like any part of your life, needs to be systematized in order to run smoothly. You must have a system for every aspect of your business or you will not be able to deal with the every day events of life, much less crises. For example, if you have no set of training procedures for new employees, they will be left on their own to figure things out. They won't know the exact requirements of their job and therefore will not complete them up to expectations. Your business will suffer because you didn't have a training system in place.

The secret to running a business smoothly is to systematize your business. You want to work on your business, not in your business. It allows you to delegate and work on the overall business while others are working towards more specific goals of the business. You want your business to be fully systematized in all areas with all your employees working at different levels to constantly be improving your business and the system.

These points are designed to help you build your business around a system, so that you are able to efficiently use your employees and your own time to the best of you and their ability.

 Hire good employees. Having people who are not only smart, but smart workers allows your business to work to its utmost effectiveness. Then, when you must delegate an important task with a crucial deadline you are confident it will be completed in time and be done well. And you're not stuck working on a task that could easily be done by someone other than yourself.
 Have a good training system in place. If you aren't able to hire the most qualified employees, you can train them if you have a good training system. With training, most competent employees will learn the traits that make them an excellent employee and invaluable to your company. And if you have well trained employees that's less time you have to spend doing menial tasks that your employees can do (just remember that you don't need to do all the training yourself).
 Create company goals. Having company goals makes it very clear to your employees and clients (and to yourself, if, in the bustle of life you ever forget what your business is all about) what your purpose is. It will also help you and your employees to remember where the company is going-the kinds of things you stand for as well as the kinds of things you want out of life.
 Have a plan. If you have a plan for things, you'll be prepared and your business will run smoothly, regardless of what happens. Have a plan for each employee's responsibilities. Have a plan for company growth. Have a plan for sudden problems or economic decline. That way, if something does go wrong or you need experience business growth or a disgruntled employee, you'll be ready.
 Create good procedures. Each kind of business has a set of processes associated with it. McDonald's has a set of procedures that they follow to the letter. From recruiting to taking orders to opening and closing, all McDonald's franchises follow a certain process to accomplish each task. Each employee has a duty and once they accomplish that thing they move onto the next one. Your company should function in a similar fashion.

Consider this: if you had to turn your business over to someone else tomorrow, would that person be able to run your company smoothly, based on the systems you have in place today? If the answer is yes, then you probably already have a good system in place. But if you answer is no, then you should consider the suggestions above to help your business run to its ultimate potential.
