operations_articlesIn order to thrive and survive, you must take a systems view of your business and understand that your TOTAL business “is” the ultimate system.  Efficient Small Business Operations stems from interdependent systems and processes built around a central business model.

The process of business model construction is part of business strategy.  Once the business strategy has been identified, the business model is then executed by business operations.  For your small business to not only function properly, but also profitably, each infrastructure system must harmoniously work together:

  • You have to have the right systems and processes (first-level operations) developed that get your solution to the market quickly, easily and profitably.
  • You have to build the internal framework (second-level operations) to support and maintain your systems and processes.

It can take a lot of time, energy and money to not only run the business but to also acquire and keep clients. This course will walk you through step-by-step on how to create, streamline and document efficient business operations.
