What is Business Systemization?

This article explains in simple terms what Business Systemization is, and why it’s important.


What is Business Systemization?

First, what is a System?

According to Brian Tracy, a system is a step-by-step process, from beginning to end, that you use to ensure consistency and dependable performance in every area.

Now, Business Systemization is simply the process of creating systems for all key areas of your business.

It’s the process of documenting procedures in a way that generates consistent results.

Business systemization enables you to “replicate” yourself and your best team members.

It’s how you build a business that can run smoothly without you.


“If you’re not working to get your business to operate without you, you’re thinking too small. Think teams and systems.”
~ Robert Kiyosaki


Business Systemization helps you in 6 ways

1. Business systemization gives you freedom

This is the most important benefit of systemizing your business: Freedom.

Since your business no longer depends on you to run, you get more time for yourself.

And you get to choose what you do with the extra time.

You can spend more time with your family, explore your other interests, or even start a new business.

It’s all up to you. That’s freedom.

“If you’re too busy to build good systems, then you’ll always be too busy.”
~ Brian Logue


2. Your business becomes joyful to run

You started a business because you wanted to live life on your terms.

But if your business cannot function without you, it starts to feel more like a job.

Running a systemized business feels like you’re operating a well-oiled machine. It simply works.

Let systems run the business and people run the systems.
~ Michael Gerber, E-Myth Revisited


3. You get to work on your business rather than in it

When your company no longer depends on you to function, you become free to focus on the strategic aspects of the business.

You can work on improving your company’s growth and set its direction for the future.

“If your business depends on you, you don’t own a business—you have a job. And it’s the worst job in the world because you’re working for a lunatic!”
~ Michael Gerber, E-Myth Revisited


4. Your business becomes scalable

A scalable business continues to perform well even as the workload expands.

If your business cannot function without you or certain members of your team, it is not scalable.

Systemization empowers your business to run smoothly as it continues to grow.

“Spend time upfront to invest in systems and processes to make long-term growth sustainable.”
~ Jeff Platt


5. Business systemization reduces your dependency on individuals

People come and go. That’s life.

When employees leave a business that isn’t systemized, work scatters. They leave with all their knowledge and this creates a vacuum.

With a systemized business, new people will simply join a working system.

“People come and go but the systems remain constant”
~ Michael Gerber, E-Myth Revisited


6. People will enjoy working at your company

Employees love to work at companies that have systems in place.

When people join a systemized business, they feel like they are part of something that works. And they can easily contribute to improving it.

New employees also hit the ground running because most of their questions are answered even before they ask.
