No one intends to make the same mistakes over and over. Like writing “2015” instead of “2016” throughout January, there are always small repetitive mistakes in life that most of us just get used to. What’s worse is that some of them happen in the workplace, where time (and therefore, money) is on the line.
Isn’t there a better way?
The reality is that with the right tools, you don’t have to make the same little mistakes time and time again. With a little effort, you can set yourself and your employees up for success to ensure that each little mistake is remedied permanently. While each small error may account for a negligible delay or waste of resources, when you start avoiding every regular mistake, you’ll soon see your productivity skyrocket!
So, how’s it done? A Brainlink International technician recently summed it up:
“I just used an SOP I wrote the last time I made this mistake… head banging reduced by 50% regarding printer driver defaults on the print server for the client”
What are SOPs?
SOPs are your way to document any and every task in your business. By laying out each task step-by-step in clear detail, you eliminate the chance of repetitive errors. What’s more, whenever a new issue occurs, you can simply create a new SOP, or update the existing one!
Brainlink International founder and leader Raj Goel has developed this award-winning SOP culture in order to change our company and our clients for the better. Don’t want to take our word for it? See for yourself:
