Considerations for Optimal Business Growth
Building and maintaining a business isn’t easy; it takes a team of like minded individuals that move and work toward the same goal, in order to build something special. Beyond that, business growth is further promoted through open mindedness, being receptive of advice from other professionals and being able to understand the right times to embrace technological elements of evolution.
Here are some important considerations to make when it comes to accessing and processing information and steps to take to further build your organization:
‘Employees are likely to have skills and experience that you can use as an asset. Having staff who are knowledgeable can be invaluable in setting you apart from competitors. You should make sure that your employees’ knowledge and skills are passed on to their colleagues and successors wherever possible, e.g. through brainstorming sessions, training courses and documentation.
Customer Knowledge – you should know your customers’ needs and what they think of you. You may be able to develop mutually beneficial knowledge sharing relationships with customers by talking to them about their future requirements, and discussing how you might be able to develop your own products or services to ensure that you meet their needs.
Developing a Knowledge Strategy is important as well, and should include the following:
- consider how effective your business currently is at using its knowledge
- analyse your internal processes for gathering and sharing information – are there successful ways of generating ideas and do staff have a good grasp of what’s happening?
- make sure that knowledge management, acquisition and distribution is a continuing process, so that it becomes central to your business’ strategy’ (source: infoentrepreneurs.org)
