What doesn’t kill you often kills you later

Image of a frustrated entrepreneurThere’s a saying that goes, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

In business, that’s rarely the case. In a business, what doesn’t kill you often kills you later.

Business owners are constantly balancing time, effort, and money in order to achieve the best results. Every time something goes wrong, it takes time, effort, and money to get the business back on track.   Since there is only a finite amount of those things, business owners can quickly run out of resources and things can quickly spiral out of control.

The best way to prevent business disasters is to setup an early warning system using Key Performance Indicators that will alert you when things are starting to go sideways. It is often easy to know what to measure in a business, but keeping the measurements up to date and accessible is critical to preventing disasters. This is exactly where business owners commonly make mistakes that lead to their demise.

That’s why developing an easy to understand, centrally located, “dashboard” is the key to keeping everyone on the same page, and ahead of the curve.

A properly designed business dashboard visually displays the correct information, to the right people, at the right time.   As a result, everyone on the team is able to understand potential issues before they become actual problems.  This will result in less time, effort, and money being spent fixing things, and more work on achieving the best results.

So, avoid being killed later by preventing potential issues from being actual problems.
