That very word sounds so technical, doesn’t it? It conjures up images of NASA engineers sitting around small screens, white-shirted people in black glasses hunched over drafting tables, in large worksites, in small communities of connected cubicles.
What IS a System?
In the end, a system is just a group of related elements and coordinated actions that are designed to create a specific result.
Business Success Relies on Systems
In business, we have any number of systems. Generating clients (and, the revenues they bring into your operation) can / should be a system. Same for selling. If you need people to run your business or practice, then a system to recruit candidates and another to select the better ones each suggest a ‘system’ as well.
Then you need to develop your new hires to perform effectively, yes? So a ‘performance development’ system for developing your people — by training, motivating, problem-solving, etc. all suggest yet another kind of business system. And lest we ignore operations, you probably have a system for how you manage your funds — an accounting system. In short, whether by design or not, an effective business is one that probably relies on using systems more than one that doesn’t.
