Managing Your Operation - No Matter How Big or Small

No matter the size or type of company or organization you are working with, there are some principles to managining your operation that are universal. 

When it comes to managing an operation, many of the rules and standards for effective, efficient operations are universal, no matter what industry you’re in or what size company you are running. Business has a rhythm.

These principles of good business - at least in theory - are the same whether you’re a Fortune 100 company or a start up coffee shop in a small town.

Gather, Control, and Use Data 

Good decisions in business come from good information. All of the data you capture should be properly managed, controlled and used to effectively position your company in your market. Whether it’s information about your customers or your inventory, the more accurate your data, the more strategic your decisions. No matter the size of your company, what you do with the information you have access to determines a lot about your success. 

Control Your Spending

Any individual, family, organization, or government who spends more money than they make is ultimately headed for disaster. It’s important that you implement processes, tools, software programs, and standards into your business that give you an accurate view of your financial scenario. The more you keep ahead of your spending, the more you set yourself up for the future. 

Manage Your Space

The more work you do to keep your physical operation functioning effectively, the more you’re improving your potential for efficiency and operational control. From having the right technology in place to know and manage your inventory to having the right set up for your space to promote safety, efficiency, and performance, your company’s productivity can likely be predicted by how your company manages the physical surroundings of its operation. 

You should be making informed decisions from information that you gather, manage, and use. You should have systems of control in place to keep your spending in proportion with your revenue. The space within which you operate should reflect productivity and strategic thinking. And these are true no matter what size operation you're managing. 

From the right technology and processes to the right workspace and operational flow, your company, no matter its size, needs a rhythm. It needs leadership to help keep things moving ahead.
