“Chaos is the enemy of any organization that strives to be outstanding.” - Karen Martin
Every part of our life is full of processes and procedures. Most of the time, we don’t even notice that we follow a process because we are so accustomed to always doing it the same way. Let’s take driving, for example. We pull out of our driveway and begin driving down the right side of the road. We drive on the road and not through the grass. Can you imagine how chaotic life would be if there were no rules for driving? We have procedures for every part of driving to keep us safe and prevent road chaos.
In business, we must have established procedures, preferably written, to prevent chaos. Doing so will help all team members know how to complete tasks, how to respond to customers and vendors, and much more. Your team should not be required to recreate the wheel each time there is an issue or task to complete. It is so much easier if everyone knows what to do and has the steps to follow.
Having a business idea, an office building or a team of people is not enough to successfully run your business. Using the right tools will help PREVENT CHAOS in your business and life.
The following tips will help prevent friction and increase productivity, leading to less chaos within your organization.
Having written procedures that are accessible to your team members is an essential foundation for your team to be successful. These procedures should include details on completing daily tasks and expectations for each specific role.
Written checklists and steps for tasks repeated regularly are also great tools your team members will appreciate. These will help everyone not forget essential steps along the way.
Written detailed job descriptions help establish boundaries and expectations.
Access to training and knowledge resource materials will help each employee know where to find the answers they need throughout the day.
Life changes, and so does business. Review and update processes and procedures regularly. Policies from 1985 may not apply in 2023.
Encourage feedback from your team. As your team uses the company procedures, checklists, and other materials to complete their tasks, ask them to provide feedback when something is outdated or no longer applicable. And have processes in place to update materials based on their feedback constantly.
And, of course, empower your employees by simplifying and streamlining processes with the proper tools, including software.
