Expansion by Duplication
While a percentage in business manage to stay afloat without proper systems, a number don’t. Do you want to flounder around fumbling your way through simple tasks or have a functional approach? Want to evolve, keeping up with the times or stick with things as they are, falling behind the competition or progress and go through sustainable expansion?
What do you feel would happen if one tried expansion by duplication of non-existent or poorly constructed, untested systems? Would such likely be conducive to a successful practice? No, in short these businesses will typically struggle and ultimately fail. Unfortunately too many in this situation tend to seek help when it’s too late. This can occur because they never saw it coming.
More often than not in this situation it’s reasonable to assume better planning and understanding was lacking. Disregarding Sensible Business Practice is seriously unwise. The more invested cost/debt wise the more serious it is. To take poorly executed systems or a business with little to none and expect to duplicate such is economic suicide.
The term economics comes from the Ancient Greek οἰκονομία from οἶκος (oikos, “house”) and νόμος (nomos, “custom” or “law”), hence “rules of the house (hold for good management)”.
