Business operation can be collectively referred to as everything that happens within a company to keep it running and earning money. It varies according to business type, industry, size, and so on. The outcome of business operations is the harvesting of value from assets owned by a business, on which the assets can be either physical or intangible.
Once a business is established, and particularly after a growth spurt, it’s important to periodically assess and analyze business operations to identify inefficiencies and improve communication. Comparisons with industry benchmarks and best practices can help a company make sure its business operations are optimum.
Elements to Be Considered in Business Operation
Business operations for most businesses, though, take into account the following elements, and the importance of each of these depends on the nature of your company.
Process is important because of its impact on productivity and efficiency. Processes done manually that can be done quicker with software or that duplicate work done by other departments can cost a business time and money. Business operations processes should be documented department by department so that operations managers can study them to find areas for improvement, consolidation, or cost-savings. Documentation also helps companies train new employees.
Staffing is determined by the processes. Who needs to do the work outlined in the work processes and how many of them are needed? A small business might need a few people who are generalists while a large company will need many more people who are specialists.
Location is more important to certain types of businesses than to others, and the reason for the location will vary. A solopreneur consultant might only need room for a desk at home, a pet groomer will need a location with parking, and a software developer will need to be located in a region with access to appropriate talent.
4. Equipment or technology
The equipment or technology needed for optimum business operations will often have an impact on location. The pet groomer with a staff and several grooming bays will need more space and different equipment from the mobile groomer who offers services provided at the pet’s home. A carpet cleaning business won’t need a storefront, but it will need a garage to store its trucks plus office space for business operations management.
If your plan is for a start-up company, include a description of how you plan for each of the four key operational areas is OK. For established companies, detail what operational changes are necessary to achieve the new goals and objectives detailed in your business plan and how you plan to implement and fund an expansion of your operation may be the focus.
