The topic in episode 17 of the AdSense Flippers Podcast is very near and dear to our hearts and is probably the most effective strategy we’ve used to successfully scale personnel and processes across a wide range of projects. Growing a business is far from easy and the struggles many entrepreneurs and business owners face is the dilution of skills and abilities throughout their organization.
When you’re a very small team working on a project, it’s easy to have the right skillsets in place and the efficiency you’re getting from each individual is likely to be high. As you find a need to grow your team outside of that initial core of people, you’ll find that efficiency can become diluted with the addition of new team members. Even for businesses that are growing and profitable, it’s critical that the organization remain lean through this period so that they don’t lose margins and advantage as they come out the other side of the growth tunnel. Using this 5-step skill transfer process will ensure that your team can maximize the strengths of the core group as you continue to expand outside of that small start-up phase.
