Why A Structured Communication Process Speeds Up Decision Making

Why A Structured Communication Process Speeds Up Decision Making

Most companies we see don’t have a structured communication process in place.

They don’t realise that two things happen when everyone in your business communicates regularly.

Firstly, you nip problems in the bud.  When you have daily meetings, you start to see the problems that are happening on a daily basis – you can see the things that are slowing you down and you can catch them before they grow bigger or simply become entrenched and part of a “this is how we do things here” culture. When you communicate regularly, everyone notices issues, they have emerged and are out in the open. And most importantly, you are now able to find a solution and move forward.

Secondly, when you have a structured communication process in place, the speed of decision making accelerates and the speed of doing business accelerates. When the speed of doing business increases, you are agile, able to shift and change tactically, able to take advantage of opportunities and to avoid catastrophes.

Successful companies use an effective communications rhythm of daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual meetings to maintain alignment and drive accountability.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg of the benefits that a structure of communication can have in your business.

Many growing businesses are leaving money on the table with senior leaders who are missing out on valuable internal and external information and a business that just can’t move fast enough to capitalise on opportunities and avoid preventable bottlenecks.

…all because they don’t have a structured communication rhythm.

It takes commitment, discipline and consistency to change, but it’s worth it if you want to sustainably grow your business.
