The Six Key Components of Any Business

Vision. Strengthening this component means getting everyone in the organisation 100 percent on the same page with where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.

 

People. Simply put, we can’t do it without great people.  This means surrounding yourself with great people, top to bottom, because you can’t achieve a great vision without a great team.

 

Data. This means cutting through all the feelings, personalities, opinions and egos and boiling your organisation down to a handful of objective numbers that give you an absolute pulse on where things are.

 

With the Vision, People, and Data Components strong, you start to create a lucid, transparent, open and honest organisation where everything becomes more visible and you start to “smoke out all the issues,” which leads to...

 

Issues. Strengthening this component means becoming great at solving problems throughout the organisation – setting them up, knocking them down and making them go away forever.

 

Process. This is the secret ingredient in your organisation. This means “systemising” your business by identifying and documenting the core processes that define the way to run your business. You'll need to get everyone on the same page with what the essential procedural steps are, and then get everyone to follow them to create consistency and scalability in your organisation.

 

Traction. This means bringing discipline and accountability into the organisation – becoming great at execution – taking the vision down to the ground and making it real.

"To the degree you focus on strengthening these Six Components as leaders and managers, everything will fall into place. That will move your business into the top 5 percent."
