If you are running a small business that is growing in a fast phase, perhaps you are feeling very happy thinking that all that are happening are the fruits of the struggles and planning that you have made.
Dramatic growth can happen to any business and can be a good thing. However this growth can happen for a number of reasons. Maybe, your business is one of the few entities that are being rapidly adopted by their customers, or perhaps they’ve merged with another company and the combined skills or products of their new company are skyrocketing their sales.
If your business is growing faster than you planned and expected, you should create policies and procedures. Having procedures in place makes training new staff much faster and ensures all employees are learning the same thing. Keeping everyone on the same page during entity’s growth is essential because your time will be getting eaten up dealing with other matters.
Secondly, you should keep your company organised despite the unexpected growth it experiences. What you need to do is to make sure that everything has a spot and areas are kept clean and tidy. If you have a common area in your company like a stationary section, make sure this is very well laid out and organised. Make things easy to find for yourself and staff and keep supplies stocked.
