As rightly quoted by Mr Mark Sanborn, famous leadership speaker –
“Your SUCCESS isn’t based on your ability to change. It is based on your ability to change faster than your competitors!”
Today, every 03 years, the technique of doing any business changes & for few sectors (like IT) this gap is far less. If you are adaptive & receptive to the change, “YOU SURVIVE. YOU SUCCEED. YOU WIN”. One such major change or rather we can call it a challenge, is getting your organization “growth-ready!!
In order to complete business change management effectively, you must have as a TOOL for optimum growth and the best results and the answer is SOP i.e. Standard Operating Procedures. SOP, as the name suggests, is neither an option nor a fancy for any organization. It is a MUST HAVE to simplify and smoothen all the daily operations.
It helps you work in a very systematic manner and defines the job of each and every person working in your organization, along with their responsibilities & accountabilities. A study suggests that 68% of the businesses have failed due to improper management, improper documentation and lack of SOP.
Advantages of getting organised:
- Helps you manage your inventory
- Define authority and responsibility amongst the staff. Set targets and incentive structure to motivate performance.
- Makes the organization “SYSTEM-DEPENDANT” & not “PEOPLE-DEPENDANT”
- KEY FOR GROWTH & PROFITABILITY OF EVERY ORGANISATION
- Owner shall be free from “DAILY OPERATIONS” & can concentrate on “BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT”
- Your customers will get the ‘best experience with your brand’
- Prevent income leakage
Once you realize the importance of SOP in your organization, you will surely be ready to get out of your comfort zone and face the change with 100% more positivity and 200% more dedication to implementing it in the right manner. Here, you can avail the services of change management consulting firms or change management companies.

If you want to GROW, you have to be willing to “SPEND MORE”!!!! (on human resources and technological solutions)
