RJ Lewis – Planning Out Loud Show
IBGR.Network - PROFIT Radio. Everything a business owner needs to start, grow or exit a business. GROW WITH US.
The Objectives + Opportunities + Challenges Presented.
Continuing our series on building the right infrastructure to systematize your business, we're going to talk about your operational development needs, capability, and capacity.
What's the best way to begin any plan?
Start with the end in mind.
If you've been listening to this show for any length of time, you've heard us wax poetically or at least competently about mapping out your processes.
Today we're going to take a look at that from a different starting point than benchmarking or minimum viable productized service - your BEST starting point.
Rather than fall into the trap of thinking and planning for one-size-fits-all procedures, set yourself and your team up for success by putting a priority on designing procedures that intersect your business needs with your strengths + talents.
By the end of our time together you will have the tools to reverse engineer a system that's a good fit for YOU, specifically.

Starting with your business model itself, often emerging CEOs are led astray by the temptation to just use what's popular - especially when it comes to software. We've discussed benchmarking here on the Planning Out Loud Show and developing your business based on industry standards is a valid means of achieving viability quickly, but can often lead to fraggravation and confuzzlement because of inadequate adaptation and execution, and failure to iterate quickly.
Enhance your understanding of the duties required to execute your business plans. What areas don't suit you as well or are not covered by your current capacity?
Strategize solutions that empower you to rely more heavily on your strengths + talents. Our core goal is to develop people and assets that will empower your company. Review and iterate with the understanding that you can work within your comfort zone at any level and create sustainable profit.
Technobalance is the Venn diagram of need, capability, and capacity that begs some core questions about your people, platforms, and processes.
Clearly define the business needs by priority and role throughout the phases of your customer life cycle.
Based on these reactions, what features sit at the heart of YOUR diagram?
