Best Practices are often a great start. Adapting and creating the PLUS version is LSCi's claim-to-fame.
- Worried about how well you do what you do - your business' general 'M.O.'?
- Wanting to improve efficiency and effectiveness, to make it easier to make more, but unsure where to start?
Sooner or later during the growth of most any company, it becomes evident that some aspects of the business are limiting growth - or even worse, are resulting in negative growth. Sadly, some methods just don't scale. They may work well when the business is small, e.g. hand-crafted products, but turn out to be loss makers when the business starts booming.
Yes to Best Practices
LSCi encourages the consideration of Best Practices as a strong candidate to solve most issues in business. Sometimes dismissed as sales jargon used for self-promotion by its creators, it nonetheless has become a meaningful source of solutions as a growing number of practitioners, consultants, and experts in most every field are working cooperatively on various aspects of their businesses to help each other improve. Today's Best Practices are usually generalized solution methodologies that are a result of years of consideration, use, and even re-consideration and evolution.
More simply stated, Best Practices have the advantage of Many Minds, Many Trials.
As such, they are highly likely to add improvements especially when compared to business methods used by new, young, and occasionally older businesses. In these businesses, methods for doing most anything may be just a continuation of what someone learned from 1 or at best a few previous practitioners. For many, there is often too many other confounding issues during the early stages of the business that the idea of seeking out best practices just doesn't happen.
Industry defined Best Practices now exist for many aspect of any business, including:
Yet 1st: "Know Thyself"
To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.
c. 469 BC – 399 BC
Consideration of any Best Practice, however, doesn't mean to infer its blind adoption. All Best Practices, as with any proposed change to a business, can be dangerous unless fully understood and carefully applied and 'adapted'. Adapted to best meet the Basic Needs of the individual business, its market, and all persons involved ... a strong prerequisite to the consideration and use of any new methods and Best Practices.
With LSCi's foundational understanding of Universal Basic Needs, it becomes easy to refine, improve, and hence adapt any Best Practice in a way that is most likely to enhance the success of any specific business.
