“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.”

Today I’m going to finish my tips about building systems.
Over the last 3 days, I told you the first three steps of the process:
- Step #1: Look at your current business processes
- Step #2: Develop your business systems
- Step #3: Test and redesign your system
Today, I will give you the final step which is to test-run with your team.
Once you’re done with redesigning your first business system, now is the time to implement it. To make teaching others faster, it helps to prepare as much as you can, and to actually demonstrate or allow them to see a demonstration of how the work is to be done.
If you’re there in person, show them or have them watch someone in action to model going through the system. If it’s work that is done on a computer, create a screen recording so others can watch to learn it.
The best way to train employees is by having them perform the process on a real-life order or project. Then the work that needs to get done is completed, and you get to see their performance and give feedback.
Then, over time, encourage your employees to try to improve your existing processes and systems. Have your checklists and flow charts readily available so they can follow them and propose new ways of doing things. Because as more and more of your business’ processes become systematized, and your systems become better and better, your revenues and profits will soar and your business will be the envy of your market.
