The holiday season is already gone and now it’s time to get back to the daily rhythm.
Taking the first few days to switch back on working mode and to finish the tasks that usually take place in the beginning of the month, now we are ready.
Ready to perform the business analysis of how the past year went and to set SMART goals.
Whilst the archiving and document management are in our blood we decided to make an experiment – to see what does it take to archive a business year… while applying initial steps from our core procedures.
We asked ourselves three questions in order to know how to archive it:
Having these answers gave us an idea on what to focus on, on what we have spent too much time and unjustified efforts, what to include in our plan for the next year, what to keep an eye on and what to improve.
Having our “why” in the opportunity lost is the first step. We came in even more details and listed all stumbling stones: Why we didn’t win the client? Have we done the maximum? Do we have the right people for the job? What we have learn after this?
“Could we finish our projects faster?” “Could we get more answers on our survey?” “Could we have more recommendations?”
We were concrete and cаme into details about our procedures, the technology we are using, the machines, the working time, the people in our team, the things we have heard our colleagues are making notes about. Thus we see how we can optimize each and every one.
As we are still in the business game – it means we make things right. It is time to analyze all the good decisions we have made and what made them good for us. “Did we invest in new equipment and facilities?” “Did we implement new business idea?” “Did we adjust and scale your?” “Did we have ROI from your marketing efforts – which ones?”
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
The answers combined with our goals helped to make the summary and the action plan.
Take time to analyse your core business needs. List your goals for the next year – include the business and the marketing ones as they are strongly connected between each other
Bear in mind all the things listed in the first part – your successful and unsuccessful actions.
