Managing a team takes planning, clear processes, and perhaps most imperatively – delegation.
At Deployed, we meet many businesses – big and small – with too much on their plate, they are overworked, understaffed and aren’t sure how to break down everything they are working on.
‘But nobody can do my job but me!’
‘But affordable talent just isn’t out there!’
‘But we haven’t got time to train new people!’
These are the problems we hear everyday. Teams are often so bogged down with operations, admin and cross-departmental issues, they don’t have the time to focus on the job they were hired to do.
Small things add up, and overworked staff and poor delegations can lose businesses a lot of money. People find themselves in a space of a mountains of work they feel is theirs to do, with nowhere to go.
So, how to delegate? And who to delegate to? Start by breaking down processes in 3 steps:
- Make a list of everything that is taking up the business’ time
- Make a list of departments
- Assign each item from the list into the relevant department
From this exercise, you can look at the company as a whole and see where the gaps are. Breaking things down like this makes it easy for you to understand what absolutely needs to be completed by your current team and what can be put together to create a cost effective administrative or support role.
From admin to operations, development to finances, Deployed help businesses understand the areas of their business that need support. The result? More free time to focus on growing your business and you and your staff enjoying what their jobs again!
