It’s common for a growing accounting boutique to struggle with business operations. A few reasons why include:
- Scope Creep – Projects often go over budget and profitability drops. Some projects are never “finished.”
- Disorganized Paperwork – With no structure to digital storage, and often a lot of paper to dig through, it can be a major challenge to find paperwork and streamline the way it moves through the system.
- Inability to Delegate – Lack of documented processes prevent assistants and bookkeepers from following the detailed intentions.
Usually, these challenges rear their ugly head because of a lack of process surrounding your workflow, combined with an inability to delegate well. Sometimes, there is no project management software or digital storage at all, or it isn’t used properly. Additionally, it’s virtually impossible to manage those small details, and keeping clients happy while focusing on all of the other responsibilities of running a business.
What appears to be an organization problem is really a process problem.
When you don’t have clearly defined and well-managed processes, projects feel messy and disorganized. Leads fall through the cracks. Client experience suffers. And, you risk damaging your brand reputation as a result. Not to mention you feel completely overwhelmed.
So how can you create effective processes that enable more profitable projects and happier clients, without spending all your time managing it yourself?
