Do You Know How to Manage and Organize Your Business?

Monday, November 26, 2012

From small companies with one or two employees to mega corporations the need to organize your work flow and your employees, even if it is just you, is necessary to the financial health of your company. It will also enhance your earning potential.

Do you know the steps to organizing your business? Can you tell if the job is being done correctly? I generally can tell, because of working with so many people over the years including accountants.

Knowing what needs to be done and in which order and to be able to choose the correct person for the job(s) at hand is not always easy. I know—as a bookkeeper for well over 20 years and the accounting manager at several different jobs over the years—this task has fallen to me numerous times. My AS in accounting has served me well—but there are times I wished that I had an organizational management degree as well!!

I had to learn by trial and error-not the best way to learn. And honestly I still can not make head or tails of organizational charts-except for maybe the most simple. Do you know the questions to ask your employees to ascertain #1-can they do the job and more importantly #2-are they going to enjoy what they are doing? If someone happens to be good at a job but really does not like what they are doing-well-they are going to do a slip shod job of it-not what you want. Always try to match employees with what they like to do. This is not always possible to do—but try!! And, if it happens to be only you in the company-enlist the aid of friends or outside contractors to help you with what you really do not want to do or don’t have the time to do.

One thing I know for a fact—those with a 4 year college degree make more money then those who do not, and there is a definite need for people with this skill set under their belts.

I am starting my own business and getting pretty organized. I have to be or I wouldn't get things done and that is counter-productive.
