The Costs of Avoiding Systemisation

For many businesses, systems and SOPs are a reliable way to boost productivity, efficiency and get great results.  What you may not know, however, is that they could also help you to save money in the long run.  In fact, avoiding systemisation and process management altogether may be costing you money.  Think about the resources you use every day.  Is there a way you can reduce this? Systems and process management could help you to tighten up budget areas where considerable money might be saved.  The fact of the matter is, you won’t know until you investigate further!  Let’s take a look at a few of the ways you could be making things more expensive by not systemising.

Achieving Consistency

One of the main reasons why so many businesses waste money before systemising is that they’re just not being consistent enough.  Consistent processes give you little room for you to go off-plan.  Going off-project can result in a lot of costs along the way which you may not have budgeted for.  Surely it’s best to plan ahead?

  • Systems help to make sure everything in a process occurs when it should. Therefore, you can always come back to the same tasks with renewed efficiency.
  • If you’re having to continually make things up on the go, you have little control over how much money, time and energy you’re expending.
  • Therefore, keeping things loose allows you to be equally flippant with your budget.
  • What’s more, consistent results which are of high quality will drive greater interest and could increased investment.
  • It should also be noted that with greater efficiency comes more time and freedom to take on more projects. Naturally, that means an increase in revenue.

Avoiding systemisation could mean you lose more money, more often.  Where is the sense, in playing fast and loose with budgets without a plan?

The Value in Systemisation

Companies investing in business systemisation will be able to fine-tune their business processes continually.  With a good SOP to hand, you will be able to see room for improvement and for revenue instantly. Merely maintaining a system could help you cut costs for months and years to come. Systemisation has incredible value when it comes to your team.  A fantastic standard operating procedure will take a lot of manual work off your plate.  You’re saving energy and effort as well as money.  Autonomy helps employee productivity and business growth!  What’s more, there is instantly more money that can be spent developing other areas of your business.  That’s always going to be welcome. Not systemising means you always have to rely on guesswork.  You also have to play catch-up.  Do you have time to run a business that way?  When it comes to streamlining your process management, systems are going to give you that best shot at getting your finances and productivity tied up.
