How Can Systems Improve My Business

Systems are like recipes.

If you follow a recipe, you get a predictable outcome, something you can count on.

If you have a recipe for a chocolate cake and you follow the recipe to the letter, you will end up with a chocolate cake.

If you give the same recipe to a dozen people and they all follow the recipe, you will end up with a dozen, nearly identical chocolate cakes.

If someone ends up with banana bread or sugar cookies, only one of two things have gone wrong: either they were given the wrong recipe, or they didn’t follow the recipe they were given.

If their cake ends up less sweet than the others, you can check the steps in the process and know which step was missed. Corrective action is easy. Having systems improves not only the quality and productivity but also provides a means for constant improvement.

Systems Make Your Business Scalable

When you add systems to your business, you give your employees a set of recipes that, if followed to the letter, produce an expected result that is measurable, repeatable, and scalable. Based on the known and expected output of the system, you can forecast, schedule, and accurately plan your work.

Replace your crystal ball with systems and watch your business improve.
