When a business starts up it’s generally amazingly efficient, you must be as they do not have the resources and client base to survive in any other manner. Growth leads to decreased efficiency and performance. There are three principal reasons for these changes.
Changes in the business environment- competition, technology and market changes all affect the way you do business.
Increased complexity- the more employees systems and services after the confusion levels.
And resistance to change- which is a normal human reaction.
Each of these conditions reflects the same core issues, performance is deficient and improvements or not sustainable. To solve these problems we need a new structure to sustain the changes and produce the desired results.
If you want to sustain change you will have to develop a structure that can deliver the preferred results in a natural outcome of the improved processes. This can be obtained with a few leverage techniques in the buy in of your management team.
The processes are the problem and the solution
A business as a sole of it’s processes they are complex and often need improvement processes create results good or bad and your processes may be the solution to increased efficiency in your business the question is how to create sustainable changes.
Desired performance versus actual performance
How we create the desired performance daily? This can be obtained by creating sustainable changes within the process of your business. This changes difficult to achieve but with the correct balance within the management team and employees preferred performance can exist.
Your existing processes of the solution and when improve in a manner that creates the results solve automatically or as a byproduct of the processes the results will then be sustainable. The processes have a structure defined by the interaction of its components the structure is more powerful than any employees ability to impact it. Structure and processes drive to your performance.
The best way to achieve this change of structure is with changes in your current processes. These changes must be planned in developed it before messages I her levels. In order to achieve this you may need to improve or re-create your current processes and this may take an external force to help create new structures as changes are more difficult to sustain without the correct procedure in place.
How can technology create sustainable improvements?
Since processes are a big part of todays work flows we need to be able to control those processes and technology can do that. By using a platform that can help you define and control the business processes you have defined as best practices you will be able to sustain those improvements. Technology can block users from using another process and guarantee your process is adhered to.
