Benefits of Creating Processes and Systems

Adding Resilience to Your Business

As you design your resilient business, you'll start to realize it all comes down to having dedicated systems and processes in place for the good times and the bad. 

 

Why? Well, no matter who you are or where you live, stuff happens. Weather happens. Illness happens. Heck, sometimes you just wake up, and you're tired and don't want to do the things you planned. Other times the crises happening seems so hard to overcome that you just don't know what to do first, but if you create processes and systems, you can overcome most things, even a lack of motivation.

 

Systems and processes create:

 

  • Consistency – It might seem tedious, but if you set up a process or system in your own home to keep it clean, it will end up cleaner by setting up a schedule to clean the floor every Wednesday using a particular method instead of waiting for it to get dirty. When you know when and you know the technique, you can ensure you have the time and the right products to accomplish your goal. The same can be said for your business. If you know that at 2 pm on Tuesday, you're going to write three blog posts about a particular topic, it's more likely to get done. 

 

  • Focus – Once you develop systems and processes, you don't have to think about it every time. Due to this, you'll be able to focus on doing the job instead of setting up the job each time. If you have a snow day and have plans for what to do on that snow day, you'll focus better because you knew in advance that if a snow day happened, this is what you are going to do. 

 

  • Transparency – One thing that customers like is honesty. If you can't be honest or even if you appear to be dishonest, it can really harm your brand. If you have a plan in place, it enables you to communicate more comfortably with your audience or other stakeholders regarding what will happen than if you have no idea what your process is on a good day. 

 

  • Scalability – Being able to scale your business isn't all about scaling up. A well-planned business can expand and contract as needed without you experiencing all that much upheaval. For example, suppose your traffic goes down due to a natural disaster. In that case, your server space or email software can contract, and the price goes down, enabling you to maintain profitability and lower expenses. This idea also works with hiring contractors instead of employees. You use contractors only when you need them and don't have to support them all the time. 

 

  • Resilience – Being able to bounce back from a problem is at the core of building a resilient business. Having systems and processes in place is the first step to doing that because creating these systems and processes highlights the recourses you need to use to get the job done, allowing you to identify redundancies and new opportunities. 

 

It's easy for a singular business owner who runs their business online working from home to believe that they don't need to set up systems and processes – but if you don't, you're flying by the seat of your pants. You will end up delaying your progress or even going out of business probably before you even really get started. Having systems and processes in place enables you to focus on other things every day that make an impact instead of reinventing the wheel each workday.
