Why Business Processes are Critical to Scalability
Clare Computer Solutions (CCS), a professional services firm providing IT solutions for companies in the San Francisco Bay area since 1990 has tips about scaling your IT and business for success. It starts with understanding how growth can affect your business processes.
Any growing business is likely to encounter growing pains. But “growing pains” is just a mild way of saying a business’ process are not adequately scalable. And rapid growth can severely damage a company if their operation isn’t set up to handle it. Most business owners want their business to grow, but how to avoid the pitfalls of not being prepared to scale your business?
Here are three areas that can help your business be better poised to scale and meet the challenges of rapid growth.
The old adage is, “dress for the job you want, not the job you have”, and this applies to business. Don’t act like a small business just because your business is small. Plan to grow and make strategic decisions as if your business was on its way to meeting and exceeding your growth goals.
A very small business requires very little in the way of formal procedures, since there are so few people and not very much to handle. But that can change in a hurry, so adopt business processes with scalability and growth in mind. Business processes should be defined, documented and repeatable, and the sooner everyone accepts this as a normal operating procedure the better off you’ll be. Any process requires some changes along the way of course, but make changes to address systemic issues, and track the results – maybe informally at first, but then as a more formal process and that can become an informed part of the planning process described above.
How your business handles the technologies required to run it is an important part of your business process, too. Plan ahead, and purchase technology with an eye to future needs, scalability, expandability and eventually, future obsolescence. If you know well in advance where your technology’s end-of-life is, that information can factor into how you react to growth. You will know, in advance, which IT assets need to be replaced quickly, and which can be relied on for another year or two.
It’s probably not possible to always “expect the unexpected”, but if you have growth plans for your business, you don’t want to be surprised by the demands put on your systems by that growth. The steps above will help your business be poised for success!
