Systems vs. One-Offs

Is your practice or business made up of tightly integrated systems or a jumbled mess of sorta customized one-offs?

If you have systems, then you have scalability, harmony and less work with more revenue.

If your practice consists of many “special” situations, I want you to think about this – “Can I deliver a quality work product and pay attention to all these unique factors and not make mistakes?’

I would suggest that unless your business is very small (few clients) and you want it to stay that way, you have a disaster (and/or lawsuit) waiting to happen.

Systems are the backbone of any business.

    I couldn’t agree more. I have known many individuals who either do not formalize their processes or base their business around what the latest technology provides by default. A repeatable process is critical to success.
