· ‘10 at 10’s
It would be impossible to even attempt at improving your management of your business premises without regularly checking in with and updating the heads of each and every department, including any companies who you have outsourced specific departments or tasks to.
One exceedingly effective way of ensuring that every department head, along with yourself, is on the same proverbial page is to implement the ’10 at 10’ system.
Essentially, the ’10 at 10’ system simply involves creating a weekly meeting with yourself and every department head at ten o’clock in the morning, for just ten minutes every Monday morning. If one or more members of staff is away, on holiday or too busy in another area of the business, someone from their department can easily step into their place.
