Killer problems faced by contracting businesses
(and how you can reduce or even eliminate them)
It's no secret, contracting businesses face a long list of challenges. Day-to-day, month-to-month, year-over-year, the challenges and curve balls keep on coming. But does it really need to be this way?
Can the cycle of "juggling balls and putting out fires" be broken?
For those willing to do what it takes, the answer is a definite "Yes." But how?
Take a look at these:
- Cost overruns
- Missed deadlines / lagging schedules
- Working from incomplete or the wrong information
- Upset clients
- Pissed off workers
- Employee turnover
- Too busy or not busy enough
- Job and business related stress
The fact is, the underlying causes of most of the these issues can be reduced and in many cases, eliminated entirely. That's a bold claim but how can it be done?
The answer to your business blues?
Put systems in place to help manage information, workflow, and business processes. Yes, it's that simple.
Systems are the only real answer as they help manage people and information more efficiently, more consistently, and more reliably.
The downside is, it's a big job to develop your own business systems from scratch. It takes a ton of work to figure out what you need, then develop and fine tune systems to make it all happen - but not having systems costs a lot more time, stress, and money in the medium to long run.
Is there a faster way than developing systems yourself? You bet...
Why killer business problems cost you big bucks (and why it's an opportunity in disguise)...
