If you are a small business owner, read all the management books that you can on techniques to help you manage your business. In the
You probably expected to just be able to exercise your trade, provide your services, without necessarily considering all the other roles you would have to take on – the accounting, the customer relations, the service development, the marketing, the administration – and still find time to clean your premises, answer the phone, pay yourself and for holidays.
If you don’t fancy working 75 hour weeks and want to keep your business in proportion with the rest of your life, then you will need to be organised.
This site is designed to introduce some techniques and tools for managing your business. We aim to discuss how to organise your time, priorities, how to stand back from your own activities, analyse them, how to set objectives and plan to work towards them.
If you like the idea of not only managing your business but seeing it evolve, change and adapt to your environment, then I hope you will be able to find some material here.
Many thinking hats
The greatest challenge in management we found, was to address a multitude of roles, to distinguish and separate them and get all of these areas to fulfil current orders, generate orders for the future and move the business forward.
Much of this is about organising priorities and activities to meet those objectives. We believe that the best way to do this is to use the power of software. Organise your current and future tasks to determine what are the best areas on which to focus.
We discuss techniques for analysing your situation, your system, the way in which your business operates, how to distil that into a plan, how to establish tasks, and how to track, monitor and evaluate your own performance.
The overall objective is for small business owners to apply some of the techniques from industrial businesses, to productionise, make a profit and sustain development.
