It exist a point in the life of your business that you have to recapitulate and realize an inventory not only of your products or services but also of your resources. Understand like personal, efforts, etc.
In some occasions the operation consumes us and we leave a gap where resources are filtering. Like when we have an escape in a tube of water. At the end of the month the bill have been raised without even noticed.
Of the same way our resources work. Day after day those resources escape and increase our spendings without knowing where is the fault.
Then, what we should do? Maximize
What does Maximize means?
Consist in taking advantage or exploding everything that is possible, certain resources or functions.
We need to allow for a moment that the operation do not consume and think in all the resources that we count with.
Make a list with all of them. Take note of even the smallest details.
Then analyze how you use each one of this resources.
What function has each of those resources in your procedures (on each of your processes).
Evaluate if you use those resources adequate.
Evaluate if you obtain the maximum of those resources.
If in the evaluation you notice that your processes does not go according to your resources or your resources with you processes, you are finding your escape.
In some occasions we want to make our tasks, projects or processes the same way that we have made it always. And we do not notice how fast our environment changes.
A philosopher said,
“This time of anxiety in which we live, is the result of trying to do today’s tasks with the tools of yesterday”.
– Marshall Mcluhan-
