Having a review and control system set up helps to minimise and automate certain steps in business. Companies need to make sure that the system is scalable as the business grows, and a formalised framework needs to be in place to ensure that this process goes smoothly.
This course breaks it down into four parts:
(1) Analysing your business organisational structure.
(2) Why you should systemise your business.
(3) How to go about it.
(4) How to apply it to new market entry
Before organisations begin systemising their business, it is important to identify your business's organisational and leadership structures. This understanding will facilitate the establishment of the framework by laying down the responsibilities of each department.
Having identified your organisational structure, businesses can then identify the optimal way to systemise after learning its benefits. The advantages of business systemisation go even further by applying your market entry strategy to new markets.
In this course,
01. Understand the Purpose of Business Systems to Avoid Common Mistakes
Building a strong understanding of systems mapping will enable you to chart the elements and relationships that compose any system you're dealing with and offer an unconventional insight into how it looks in space, how it behaves in time, and what it affects. In addition, understanding its purpose will better enable you to identify the pitfalls that business owners are susceptible to and learn how to avoid them.
02. Applying Organisational Management to Create Systems
Before beginning to systemise your business, identify the organisational and leadership structures within your business. This will act as the foundation to ensure your business is systemised optimally.
03. Learn to Use a Step-by-Step Process to Systemise your Business
Having a clear image of the system will allow you to create systems to support your company growth plan and reaffirm its control. Being guided by a step-by-step process will also offer an important communication tool, helping you collaborate and inform key stakeholders when building more sustainable systems.
04. Apply your System to your New Market Entry
Learn how to duplicate the various systems from your company headquarters to the office in the new market and the control you need to have in the HQ when creating a system for the new market.
By the end of this course, you’ll understand how to apply these methods to craft a formalised system for your business.
