Why are Systems Important in Business

What is a System?

A system is a series of steps or processes working together to produce a predictable and expected output.

Think about a car. The fuel system is a series of mechanical parts and tubing that work together to get your fuel from the fuel tank to the engine in a way that it can be used to power the car.

The electrical system is a series of mechanical parts, belts, wires, and circuits that move electricity from the battery to the various part of the car that requires an electrical current to operate.

In business, you have multiple systems that are made up of a series of steps or processes and procedures that accomplish a specific task.

  • Sales
  • Lead generation
  • Employee acquisition
  • Manufacturing

Each one of these systems can be broken down into sub-systems: online sales, retail sales, international sales. Those can be broken down even further into processes or procedures that produce an intended result.

Making Your Business Scalable

If your employees aren’t following the same process or procedure, then your results will vary. If they aren’t following procedures, the quality and quantity of their output will vary and will not be measurable, repeatable, or scalable.

If, on the other hand, you implement systems in your business then any employee can be trained to follow the system and ensure they get the same results. That gives you the flexibility to reassign employees as needed while still getting the expected, predictable results.

By implementing systems and the policies and procedures necessary, your business will run like a well-oiled machine. Systems make your business measurable, repeatable, scalable, and sustainable.
