Do You Want to Work Smarter? Here Are 5 Strategies for Improving Business Productivity

1. Use technology to improve your operations:

Web-based technologies enable you to dramatically improve how you run your business. Productivity management tools range from spreadsheets, software solutions or business-specific, custom-developed applications.

Smart inventory control systems can help you reduce inventory levels, improve profitability and speed up customer response time.

Online and order management systems integrate inventory information with your organization’s purchasing.

Accounting and e-business systems, so you can easily track order status and the movement of inventory within your company. You will also be able to identify peak and low periods, allowing you to adjust supply purchases and better manage working capital.

Technology keep abreast of developments and ensure that your business is taking advantage of the latest innovations to improve productivity.

2. Productivity Starts with the Individual

Is productivity sometimes a lost cause? There are all sorts of productivity tools and methods out there but they share a key feature at their core – You! the only way you can become more productive is by changing the way you think about and act toward, the things you want to achieve. 

3. Stick with the established process

Having a project that is already underway, trying to speed things up can result in cutting corners.  It’s important to Stick with the processes that have been established already. With trying to cut corners to speed up the process, something may slip, which must be fixed later and costs time and money. Things go more smoothly if we stick to the process we started with.

But if you’re changing a process, do so intentionally, not just on impulse or because you’re behind schedule. Processes can be changed, but they should be changed intentionally and with communication to the full team after the potential change has been approved.   

4. Communication is Key

Nothing is more productive than creating an efficient system whereby people can easily communicate with anyone in one’s company and someone actually responds.

Effective communication and productivity go hand in hand. Organizations where employees speak openly and honestly with their colleagues and managers thrive because of the benefits of clear communication. When businesses fail to meet their targets, it is often due to poor communication between employees about projects, goals, milestones and deadlines. Providing communication tools such as instant messaging apps or project management tools also helps employees to use their productive communication skills.

5. Hire the Best Team

Delegate tasks to your team and tell them the end result desired and then, let them do it their way. This creates a positive team environment, expands collective intelligence in the work place and creates greater efficiency and effectiveness on all levels.
