What does an effective operational framework look like?
Successful operational frameworks and methods are two-fold – they are just as effective inside your company as they are outside. Both staff and customers experience:
- Ease of accessing what they need, when they need it
- The least number of steps possible to get from start to finish, without compromising on quality
- A seamless experience that helps everyone do the best or receive the best service – from the company and from others in the team
None of us want to experience this in our day:
How can an optimised framework help my business?
Here are 3 strategies I have implemented into businesses to support their operational frameworks, and seen fantastic results from, like:
- 2x Revenue in 3 months
- Exceeded quarterly goals
- Produced better quality work in less
How to integrate good operational frameworks into your culture
90 Day simplified business plan: A business plan does not need to be 50 pages, complex and over-engineered. It should be direct and simple. Everything you work on should have an immediate progress impact on your plan. If your to-do list and your plan are out of sync, you’ll be using your time on things that don’t produce results. A 90 day plan keeps you and your team focused, nimble and efficient, to get that momentum to reach your goals.
Leverage your calendar: Protect your time & delegate. Block out time for your most essential work which feeds directly into your 90 day one-page plan, and utilise your team and their passions and skills to collaborate towards your goals. Give yourself space to produce your best work. It’s not the hours in the day we work that get results, it’s the way we use the time we have.
Pulse reports: Stay informed with the data that matters, weekly. This should fit on 1 page and be the most essential data relevant and in line with your 90-day plan. This is a business-wide essential for 2 reasons:
- The information is digestible and not overwhelming for everyone in your team. Celebrating successes is important, too.
- You can spot in less than 30 seconds where gaps are and what needs focus.
Simplifying your plan so you are working towards goals that will grow and scale your business is vital to effective operations. Create processes and systems that work for you, not against you. Your Business is a Matrix that can be primed and build to make your business a success.
