Business Boot Camp, day seven – all systems go
by Peter Switzer
Organisation is crucial to business success and great systems can help.
So, what are systems? Put simply, systems involve a set of instructions that anyone should be able to follow. No matter how simple or complex a task may be, a system helps everyone to be on the same page.
Security, for example, is important in any office. You can show people a thousand times how to turn on the alarm and lock up at the end of the day, but some people will still forget some of the steps and this can cause problems. If you have the closing procedure written down in a system, there’s no excuse for getting it wrong.
Writing systems like this may sound trivial, but it will give you and your staff peace of mind.
What tips do you have for keeping the office organised and operations streamlined?
