Systemise or Die (3)

What Next? More About Systemising.

This edition of TeamTips is concerned with the performance-management side of Team Leadership. There are three things you can do if you’re interested in finding out more about this:

1. Read a Book
We recommend “The E-Myth Manager”, by Michael Gerber. People think that Gerber’s all about franchising, but he’s not. His core message is to systemise, and E-Myth is without a doubt one of the best business books I’ve ever read.

2. Think About Firm’s Who’ve Systemised
Corporations like McDonalds (never mind the food / ethics - just admire their beautiful system!), Xerox, and Dell. But it’s not just for huge firms - systemising also works for small companies like twentyfirst century media, onebestway, and of course, Sevenrings ;-)

3. Call Sevenrings
We’ve helped dozens of individuals and organisations improve their performance through systemising, and we’d be happy to talk to you about your particular situation at no initial charge.

We specialise in helping people to get better results by changing the way they work. We can provide training from 1/2 day taster sessions focusing on just one aspect of the Team leader’s role, up to comprehensive programmes over several months.

Our phone number is 0191 2522 335.

No podcast this week - I'm off on holiday!
