Managing technology change in your business
This week I was lucky enough to be invited to speak for 40 minutes on Small Biz Matters with Alexi Boyd.
Alexi is a champion advocate for small business.
He passion and enthusiasm for her industry is infectious, as is her non-nonsense and down to earth mannerism.
I had a great time chewing the fat and discussing the world that us small business owners are in.
Her podcasts cover a whole range of important and relevant topics, so get on a podcast when you can, as investing in personal development (and the development of your team or network) is crucial to growth and success.
What we discussed was the methodology I use for all my clients when I help them undertake some change in technology.
The 4 P's.
The 4 P's is a decision framework that will help you to make decisions whilst making sure you understand the impact that decision has on other parts of your business.
The 4 P's are:
Each time you make a decision around your new technology, either one of these is impacted. And one decision often impacts the other.
- Product - know what your product is now and what you want it to be
- Platform - choose the right platform for your product goals
- People - after choosing the platform, you need to get the staff and what they do sorted
- Process - what the staff do (3 and 4 work together)
Enjoy the podcast!
