Most SME businesses suffer from a lack of systems / processes, this leads to relying on too few individuals which causes havoc when people leave or are away for extended periods, and the result is often a frustrated and or overloaded owner. Many fail to appreciate that in the best businesses, systems run the business & ordinary people run the systems. Consider McDonalds, a global empire run by teenagers? Not really, although most staff are teenagers they follow, and are trained, on processes so no matter where you go, the experience is always the same. Consistency is the key to business improvement and there is no chance to be consistent if things are done different ways.
