As your business grows, the bolted-together systems and processes that worked when your company was smaller won’t scale sufficiently to support new customers, employees, product lines, and service offerings.
Equally important, there’s a natural tendency for companies to create more complex processes over time – for example, to accommodate new customer demands or to work around disconnected systems. And as they build up, these complex processes create inefficiencies, drive up costs, and make your business less agile.
But if barriers keep slowing down your simplification efforts, you’re not alone. As noted in a recent Knowledge@Wharton paper, “Business Simplification 2015: The Unmet Strategic Imperative,” companies battle everything from a resistant culture (often due to fear that simplification will lead to lost jobs) to managers who lack the time to implement new systems, processes, and policies.
But sometimes simplification initiatives stall because they fail to start simple. Sometimes the best way to get the ball rolling is to focus on one or two processes – for example, a decision making and an approval process – and empowering the people closest to those processes to simplify their daily work.
Such projects still need to have the support of top management and be tied to strategic initiatives, of course – but the goal is to build momentum around the goals and benefits of business simplification.
People can experience first-hand that it’s really just adopting a simpler way of working that reflects proven business practices. And they can realise the benefits directly, right away.
So where do you see opportunities to start simple with simplification within your business? Contact us for more information on 01244 676 900
