98 Entrepreneurship Part 15: Scaling Your Business

An episode on how to scale and optimise your business to make more profit and enhance your competitive advantage. The issues covered include:
  • Standardisation: making one version of what you do
  • Proceduralisation: making one version of how you do it
  • Optimisation: speeding up and automating your procedures
  • Knowledge Capture: maintaining and growing your operation within the context of staff coming and going
  • Optimising at the level of the whole business: only doing the things that it makes sense to do
