Build A Good Management

As a business owner, it is always not possible for you to directly interact with the clients and the employees; your directors, managers and team leaders does this on your behalf. So to make certain that your customers are getting the best deal you need to have the best management. In order to make your employees feel to be at ease in the company, you must build a strong and sensible management. Appropriate delegation- to the right person, at the right time is pivotal for business success.

Keep Things Documented

How long can you remember someone’s instructions? Not more than 10 minutes if you do not write these down. This is the reason it is always best to write down what you want your team to follow rather than just instructing them verbally. Moreover, if orders are not documented and things go wrong, you will probably find people denying the fact that they knew what was expected out of them. So communication should always be more written than verbal.

Document all guidelines that you want your organization to follow in the form of SOP, that is, a Standard Operating Procedure. It should contain all the steps that every department should follow to ensure a smooth running of the business. A SOP is made keeping all employee and customer considerations in mind and hence when it is followed strictly, you can easily achieve success. Also, when you have a SOP in place and a new employee joins the organization it is easier to help him/ her follow the instructions. Do not forget to upgrade your SOP on regular basis to keep pace with the changing needs of the customers.

Make Less Commitments

It is a common human psychology that people get happier when more is given to them than the expectation. The same theory is true for customers; they will return and spread the news when their expectations are exceeded.

On the other hand, if you commit more and deliver less there will be extreme negativity among the customers and you may start losing them. So commit less and deliver more to achieve business success. Another tip to get good business is to meet deadlines. If you need 5 days to manufacture and deliver a product to the customer take a time of 7 days to have enough time to handle any mishap or unforeseen event.

Appreciate Good Work

Appreciate your team’s hard work to get success in business. Build a good team, where there is less ʺmeʺ & more ʺwe.ʺ Your employees should feel valued in the organization. Any organization which has high attrition rate and dissatisfied employees cannot get good business.

Arrange regular rewards and recognition in the company to generate higher levels of productivity. There should be unbiased performance appraisal and anonymous systems to capture employee feedback.
