Have procedures in place to work smarter not harder

Having procedures in place can boost productivity. As a small business owner or manager, we are encouraged to think of ways to work smarter, not harder. This could be by automating processes that used to be completed manually, being organised or having easy access to information or items when needed.

Manage your time effectively

There are numerous tools available that can help small business owners manage their time effectively. Doing so, can help you stay organised and accountable for where you are spending your time. Online tools such as a to do list or time management app can be helpful, as are traditional time managing methods such a hard copy diary or calendar.

Outsource tasks where possible

Outsourcing tasks can be a wise business decision. Why? It will reduce your workload giving you more time to spend on other key areas of your business such as reviews and planning. Most small business owners are talented and skilled in their chosen industry, however, don’t have experience in other essential areas of running a small business such as IT, marketing or managing finances.
