Managing a business is not all about getting lucrative deals. Sometimes, it is knowing how to work well with the most important and irreplaceable resource: time. How should you make your work hours work for you to its maximum potential? UnionBank GlobalLinker has a few tips that might help you out.
Management Tips for a Smoother Workflow
Run your business; do not let your business run you! Here are some helpful tips to help along the business workflow:
- Time Management: Every employee has a set list of duties to fulfill daily, and there are times when unforeseen circumstances that disrupt their routine may happen. Learn to prioritize important tasks based on the time it needs to be accomplished and its level of difficulty.
- Communication is Key: Give your employees an environment where open communication is nurtured. As these people see the daily workflow from a different perspective than you do, it would be wise to ask them for suggestions as to what they think the business can improve on.
- Technology is A Friend: Gone are the days when we have to do everything by hand. Work faster with available tools, or get the tools necessary to make your business’ workflow faster. Automate everything that you can. A classic example is having computerized cashier systems, instead of having to write down the official receipt (OR) for every transaction. It makes the process more efficient, enabling you to serve more customers and giving your employees more time to accomplish other equally important tasks.
- Limit Interruptions: Here’s a good rule to follow: if you can say it in an email, there is no need to hold a 30-minute meeting for it. “Quick” meetings that extend to more than ten minutes, or veer off into unnecessary chatter, can disrupt a person’s normal workflow. Try to reduce these kinds of interruptions unless necessary, as they can be more of a cause of delay than a source of business solutions.
