Is the need for better organisation in a business a function of size?
The answer to this question is both yes and no. It is true that the bigger and more complex a business gets the more crucial it becomes to have structure and organisation, but that does not mean that structure and organisation aren’t of value in a smaller business.
Setting time aside to work “on” the business rather than “in” it
The fact is that all businesses can benefit from a clear and well-articulated organisation structure where reporting lines, responsibilities and accountabilities are both allocated and understood; and further where the day to day running of the business is well ordered with time set aside to communicate and consult with the workforce and co-ordinate and discuss with the management team; business owners and leaders also need to have some time set aside to work “on” the business rather than “in” it.
If your business suffers from duplicated effort, tasks getting missed, deadlines being missed, raw materials running out, staff getting frustrated, you being over busy – then the chances are you need to look at your structure and organisation.
