Business Process Improvement

By Hedrick Lepsch

As you are deciding what business process improvement plans are going to work the best for you, it is important that you do some research. Spending time researching and crunching numbers will take some time, but will be well worth your effort in the long run.

The first thing you should do in sports and business is to see what you've got right now. What athletes do you have? What are their individual strengths and weaknesses? Put together, how do their strengths and weaknesses even out? As a whole, where are you lacking? The qualities and interactions of sports teams and business employees are basically the same.

These individuals should have the support of a skilled manager to direct them through their various projects. The management hierarchy shouldn't be so convoluted that it gets in the way of progress.

As time goes on, a business will accumulate a large list of rules that's supposed to regulate how a company operates. In many instances, the presence of a rule does good things for the business that created it. On the other hand, you have to consider what that rule does to the workflow during an average day.

Then, take time to look at the costs that change significantly from month to month. You may find that your payroll changes a lot from month to month depending on how busy you are or you may find that this is a cost that is fixed for your company.

Now that you know what is working and what isn't, it should be relatively simple to come up with a good plan. After some serious brainstorming, both a sports team and a business should be equipped with everything they need to form a plan of action. Remember that it is important to come up with an efficient, simple, and unique game plan or business strategy.

Leave things that work alone and change only things that need to change. Remember when coming up with a plan is that each team and business is different.

For some companies, this may simply mean cutting out excess that is included in costs because there are not systems in place for those costs. Creating the proper systems to make sure that each cost that you incur is necessary, will be well worth your time.

You should take what makes it great and apply it to all other corners of your business. You will find that when you spread out the good aspects of your organization, it begins to produce great results for your business. All you have to do is have the wherewithal to begin to receive it and take it. The best leaders in this industry should look at people who want to stick with what works as assets rather than liabilities.
