If you’ve ever operated a business, you know how hard it is to maintain consistent quality of work throughout your venture. There are just so many things you have no control over that could go wrong. Even if you are careful in managing your company, you simply cannot micromanage everything. In turn, you may feel lost and feel like you are not in control. Don’t worry though as this is normal but that doesn’t mean that you should not care. You definitely should care but you need to use it to empower your business instead of carrying it as a burden.
One thing you can do is delegate the tasks to several of your senior employees and let them manage a team of their own. This would make the work place easier to manage. This setup is more organized and will lead to better communication. If you effectively divide your work force into several teams, you are going to make it easier for yourself to manage the company. Instead of having just one guy (you) micromanaging the entire work force, you now have several people managing the perfect amount of people.
By now, it should already occur to you that this setup is undeniably better than the traditional setup of managing all employees by yourself. As a business grows larger, you will need to divide the work load into manageable parts and have several top guys manage their own team. Have the managers report to you then make your decision – you are their boss after all. Basically, you are going to be the CEO.
The point that I am trying to make is business owners need careful guidance especially if they are just starting out. A small business may work fine under 1 manager but a continuously expanding business will need to hire several managers to make use of the available work force efficiently. This is why you always see business structure that resembles pyramids. There is only one at the top and he/she delegates the tasks to several people.
For businesses, big or small, organizing their business process is a tricky thing to do. Some would hire third-party companies to oversee their business. This is where IT services companies come. They can help a business run more efficiently by cutting all unnecessary processes and only leaving the ones that is integral to your business. Basically, they will do all the dirty work of streamlining your business. You just have to sit and wait and let them do their magic.
