Thank you for following through with this series. I will really appreciate it. I do hope you are finding this series interesting and helpful.

Processes And Procedures?

Every organization has processes and procedures for getting things done. They are the laid down ways and channels to get situations addressed and solve problems. It is the work of management to constantly review processes and procedures. This is to give room for constant changes, new challenges and to level up with industry standards. This is what we determine how far and fast things move within the organization.

The success rate of any organization on its objectives is largely dependent on the quality of processes and procedures made available. Without processes and procedures, no organization can be structured. Organizations do not just become structured on their own. It is the work of the management staff. They are employed to build structures and maintain them to retain a culture that will give birth to success continually.

The issue is that success seats on structures and those two things are meant to give structure to the organization. This explains why some companies keep going about in cycles hardly ever able to achieve any of their goals. They have failed to build a structure for success. You can have many expatriates in your management team with lots of education, if there are no structures revealed by processes and procedures, they have failed and will continue to fail.

The Problem And Deceit

The problem is that the so-called management gets lots of money and benefits which must be justified by their performance. But because there is no structure in place, success becomes difficult. Instead of them building one, they will result in unrealistic targets and threats for their team members. This is because they can’t think and be innovative enough to come up with policies, processes, and procedures that are unique to drive the organization’s goals. This is actually why they are paid large sums. Almost 15% of lots of targets will be achieved by having good structures in place. At least, help your team with that and know that that’s what you are paid to do.

In some organizations, what they do is simple but extremely bad. They simply check out for similar organizations and then copy what is working for them. The truth is, no two organizations are exactly the same even if they are in the same industry. The beauty of each organization is in its uniqueness. All processes and procedures must be tailored to what the organization is and what it hopes to achieve. Again, they will begin to frustrate employees to implement their copied procedures and processes and expect to get the same result the original owners were getting. They themselves can see flaws but they will tell you to manage them.
