Ingredient 1 – Systems
What is a business system?
In generic terms, a system is a process that simplifies your business and allows you to accelerate the growth of your business.
Every business, big or small, requires systems, simply because, without a proven system, the business would never grow. A system is the building block of any business. It is the foundation upon which we build the business.
Now that we have established the need of systems for a business, let’s see what a system should be like.
The basic need for any business system is to be SIMPLE. This will allow you to follow the system consistently and simplify business functions to a point where you don’t have to put in too much effort.
How easy would things be if you were able to build a system to track all the tasks and functions of your business at one go? That’s the beauty of creating a simple system. You no longer have to spend hours to ensure the progress of the work for you will have it all in one place.
The other necessity for a system to be SUSTAINABLE so it can be followed with ease and the entire team can understand it and make it a part of their work routine.
A sustainable business system will ensure that your business not only thrives while you are running it but also continues to grow in your absence. It will enable you and your team to achieve goals faster and with a lot more ease.
The success of a system lies in how simple and sustainable it is and how quickly it can be adapted to your business and whether it will last when you are not actively a part of the business.
