How to Optimize Your Business

Far too often, we are caught up in the day to day whirlwind and we’re so caught up in the minutia. We don’t have the perspective to see how we can do things better.

Here’s how you can take a step back and effectively assess what you’re doing so that you can make improvements and get better results.

Small Hinges Swing Big Doors

If we’re making small incremental changes, it may not seem like it’s that effective. Everyone wants the easy button.

Everyone’s looking for that quick fix. But in reality, if you’re consistent and you’re making those small changes, you can have a tremendous impact on the trajectory of where you’re headed. 

So here’s the process. The first thing to do is define the critical success factors.

If you’re looking at the business as a whole, you may be looking at different pillars of the business such as:

  • Strategy and Execution: Evaluate the effectiveness of setting clear goals and executing them.
  • Sales and Marketing: Assess your marketing message delivery, lead generation, and conversion into customers.
  • Team Synergy: Determine if your team operates cohesively, displaying a growth-focused culture and efficient teamwork.
  • Systems and Operations: Analyze the efficiency and effectiveness of your defined systems and operational workflows.
  • Finance and Profits: Check whether your financial objectives align with revenue generation, cash flow, and desired profit margins.

By breaking the business down into these different components, you can assess each stage, either yourself or with the leadership team or with your whole team. On a scale of one to ten where one is low. You’re not doing good there at all. 10 is you couldn’t possibly do any better. And five being about average. 

So by doing that, you’ll start getting an awareness of where your strengths and weaknesses are. 

Here’s How Mark Optimized His Business

Now here’s a success story of optimizing using the technique, systematic amplification.

Mark, a frustrated accounting firm owner, felt stuck and overwhelmed by various tasks but was unsure where to focus. His business lacked defined goals, guidance, tracking, and accountability.

Year after year, he maybe would get the work done. Maybe there’s a little bit of improvement, but he felt like he’s spinning his wheels. He didn’t know where to put his attention there. Was so many different things to do. It’s overwhelming. 

Upon analyzing his business pillars, Mark realized the need for clear goals, team alignment, and accountability. With focus and strategic guidance, he witnessed significant changes in team vigor and actions.

And sure enough, the business sort of achieved levels of success that they never had before.
