Liberate Your Time by Developing Your Company Organization Chart

Your company’s organizational strategy is centred around the development and communication of your Organization Chart. The Organization Chart takes the form of a graphical representation of the positions in your company. The top Position in the company (i.e. CEO or General Manager) is placed at the top of the Organization Chart. The various layers of management and supporting Positions are then arranged under the relevant management Positions right down to the lowest levels of the Organization.

Your Organization Chart not only defines the Positions in your business but the Employees assigned to those Positions. The Organization Chart clearly communicates the management and reporting structure of your business, specifically who an Employee assigned to a Position reports to directly.

It is extremely useful when developing your Organization Chart to take the time to design how you want your company to be structured when it is finished the Business Development Process. This approach will have the effect of setting a path for the development of your company. Once defined you and your Employees take the actions required to make it a reality.

Develop the Positions in your Organization Chart to be representative of specific work roles in your company. You should not develop your Organization Chart based on the employees you currently have in the company, rather you should develop the Positions based on logical groupings of work. One of the benefits of developing an Organization Chart is that it enables your company to become less dependent on specific employees and more dependent on the structure that you have developed.

An Effective Organization Chart: – Communicates to your staff where you plan to take the business. – Makes it easy to show new employees where they fit into the business. – Gives you the opportunity to evaluate your current employees and how they fit into the future of your business. – Shows existing employees what options they have for career advancement. – Leaves no question as to who an Employee assigned to a Position should be reporting to.

Depending on where you are in the development of your company you will probably be filling many of the positions yourself. By choosing a position and actually defining and documenting the systems the position is responsible for, you can readily employ someone to fill the position. This allows you to begin the development of other positions in the company.
You will get to a point where all of the positions in the Organization Chart are developed and you will have employees assigned to these positions. This allows you to begin taking a more strategic role in the development of your business or to take a step back and enjoy the freedom that a well defined business allows you. This is a great place to reach and is a huge step in your business’s development and your own personal development.

How to Use Graphs and Charts in Your Business Plan

Set Goals and a Definitive Purpose For Your Business

Short term goals form the basis of any business activity, be it a large business organization or a small-scale home-based business. Anyone who desires to start a business needs to have a well-planned and organized schedule to conduct it in a very efficient manner.

If you want to start a business from the comfort of your own home, an online business is the one best suited for you and thanks to the power of the internet, you can easily plan it in a meticulous way.

Effective goal setting is an extremely important feature of any internet-based or work from home business. When you start a business, chart out a clear-cut plan prioritizing your short term goals so that you don’t miss out on the important things.

Your business should focus on a distinctive purpose or ‘vision’ without which you cannot succeed. By striving to achieve your goals, you’ll get closer to your vision.

How to Set Goals

If you are a self-employed entrepreneur, you need to be very specific about your goals. The basic thing that you need to do is to list down your goals and set a target for yourself to achieve these goals.

Generally, short term goals are always easier to achieve than the long term ones. You can take one step at a time, achieving each goal within a fixed timeframe, so you know where your business stands at any given point of time.

As an entrepreneur, some of your specific short term goals maybe:
o To find a suitable business opportunity.
o Evaluation of an opportunity to assess its merits and demerits.
o Initial launch of the business.
o Establishing the right connections to carry on the business efficiently.
o Target fifty sales and make a profit of $3000 within a month.

Goals are set so that you don’t lose sight of your vision. Flexibility is an inevitable part of setting specific goals. Without goals, no action can be executed with precision and competence. As an internet business owner, your actions should focus on attaining the objectives of your business.

In an existing business too, your focus may shift to another area, so your task of new goal setting begins and you carry on the business from there with your goals in mind. Often, you listen to your gut feeling, although you may have a specific plan of action to reach a target that you had fixed.

Sometimes, your instinct does help you succeed, but it is mostly the organized course of action, focused on your short term goals, that leads you to win over many critical situations and succeed in your actions.

It’s not a difficult task to achieve your vision by setting goals. If you have the ability to think, you can have a vision. It’s as simple as that. The outcome of your business is directly proportional to your vision. So work hard toward achieving your short term goals so that you can see the big picture.

Remember that you have the power and the potential to make it big in your life by having a clear vision and striving hard to achieve it by setting short term goals.
