Hopefully by now you’re sold on the benefits of Systemizing your business and creating Policies, Processes and Procedures to help your employees manage the business. But you might be wondering, how on earth do you remove yourself from all your different roles and responsibilities and find the time to Systemize your business?
Business owners tend to get involved in every area of the business and have many different roles, not because they don’t trust their employees, but because they have a certain ideal about how some things should be done, or certain knowledge about how to do it faster. So it becomes easier for them to just do these tasks themselves. But because they’re so busy ‘doing’, they don’t have enough time to spend on improving the business.
That’s why you need to create an Operating Manual, which is the first step towards removing yourself from any role other than that of ‘Leader’ and creating more time to work on the business, not just in it.
Your main objective is to rid yourselves of all the tasks and responsibilities you have now, and pass them on to someone else, so you can work on turning your business into a well-oiled, finely-tuned machine. But you’re never going to feel comfortable passing those important jobs on to someone else, until you give them the tools they need to do it exactly how you want them to. To do these, you need to give your employees an Operating Manual.
The best way to get started on your Operating Manual, is to create Processes and Procedures for all your own roles and responsibilities. That way you can pass them on to someone else, freeing up your time to Systemize the rest of the business.
Here’s how you do that:
Now you can Systemize the rest of your business!
