What are your New Year’s resolutions this year? Are you hoping to grow your business? Maybe you’d like to improve morale around the office. No matter the business resolution, there are certain steps that will surely help get you where you need to be.
Be honest right now – can you rely on your data? If you’re still using spreadsheets, your data is probably not the most up to date. Make a resolution to reduce human error and duplicate data entry and stick to it by freeing your business from spreadsheets. Custom dashboards allow you to access the information you need from multiple data sources in real time. This leads to more informed decisions and tells you where you stand with your goals.
Processes and efficiency are the key to a successful business. And good processes surely bring efficiency. Spud has a proven process that has evolved with the last 22+ years in the industry. Our 4-step approach of “Define, Design, Develop and Deliver” has allowed us to help hundreds of clients of all sizes and industries find a business solution to gain their own efficiency.
Take some time to clean up your processes or establish them if that’s the case. Make sure you and your employees understand each of them, as well as why they’re in place.
Keep Setting Goals
It’s easy to enter a new year with a set of goals to achieve, but actually accomplishing them may be a bit daunting. After determining what you’d like to achieve or improve, consider breaking those larger, more abstract goals down into smaller goals. This gives you a more realistic starting point. KPIs can help you determine where you may need to focus more energy so that you can reach those company targets or milestones.
But don’t stop there. Sure, the New Year is of course a great time to reset and determine big goals, but goal setting shouldn’t be restricted to January. It’s important to continue setting goals as your business achieves them or evolves.
Setting goals keeps a group or individual focused on accomplishing more. Encourage your employees to make and achieve goals each month or even each week.
