Business technology can be a complicated topic, and with it appearing in more and more aspects of daily operations, it is important for organizations of all sizes to be sure that they have a complete understanding and awareness of how they put their IT to use. These considerations make it imperative that certain best practices are made part of your standard operating procedures… and for this to be accomplished, company leadership will need to lead by example.
It’s common knowledge at this point that the future of business has a foundational reliance on digital technologies. As a result, it is increasingly important that business leaders, owners, and managers set the tone in terms of adopting them and becoming familiar with these solutions in the day-to-day operations of their organizations.
How important is it? Let’s put it this way: research indicates that a team where half of its members have a comfort level with the technology they use performs more than 48 percent better than those that don’t in terms of revenue growth and business valuation.
Clearly, this is not an opportunity that should be passed up on should it present itself… but as we said above, embracing it will require a top-down approach.
Here’s the crux of the situation: regardless of how diligent your team is in using the tools and resources that you have supplied them with, it is just a matter of time before one of them discovers a shortcut or workaround that ultimately creates complications for your organization.
To avoid these complications, leadership needs to set the example and wholeheartedly embrace the tools and processes that are expected of their team members, enforcing compliance as necessary.
To help you get started, we’ve put together a brief list of behaviors and activities that your team should embrace moving forward so that you can more effectively encourage them.
