Business Process Management (BPM) for Small Businesses
One thing I love about business owners is their passion for what they do. That’s why they get into their line of work.
But I often see them stressed, frustrated, or overwhelmed in the running of their business. Behind-the-scenes work becomes a grind and they lose the joy that first inspired them.
The secret to re-igniting this passion lies in that which makes their business tick—their business processes.
A business process is simply how you accomplish any given task, how you get from A to B. Every business has dozens of processes at work during the course of a day.
Most of them you and your staff just “know” how to do, whether it’s answering phones, building a component, or writing an article.
The problem is most business owners don’t invest time in documenting, measuring, and managing these business processes. They're busy with other important things. Yet as the business tries to grow, inefficient processes prevent it. That’s when stress and burnout rear their heads.
Various studies1 show that while 96% of businesses have some documented processes in place (probably from the start-up phase), only 4% actually measure and manage them.
This is why we created Business Process Management (BPM) for Small Businesses.
As a business owner myself, I'm painfully aware of how valuable your time is.
There simply is never enough of it to go around. So when you do devote time to something, it MUST be high-impact.
That’s what we’re offering. By the end of this step-by-step implementation plan, you’ll have two high-impact assets that will completely change your business, and how you think about business process management.
First, you’ll have one completely re-designed process in your business. We walk you through it, so you end up with an efficient, streamlined process that instantly makes your business, and your life, more manageable.
Secondly, you get a permanent system in place for documenting, measuring, and managing your business processes.
Avoidable Mistakes—What Happens When You Don’t Manage Your Processes?
Nature abhors a vacuum. It’s true in business, too.
When processes are left to chance, something or someone will rush in to fill it. These things may or may not be efficient. They may or may not advance your business objectives although they will advance the objective of the person creating it, whether they're a customer or employee.
The net result is complication. There are too many options, too many steps, and too many people involved. There are redundant tasks. You and your staff constantly re-invent the wheel.
Growth stalls because:
* Costs are needlessly high
* Time is wasted
* Quality suffers
* Customer complaints start to rise
* And everyone’s stress level rises
Your business isn’t exactly operating like the well-oiled machine you envisioned in the beginning!
But if you’re like me and most other small business owners, the very words, “processes” and “systems,” are enough to make you feel instantly overwhelmed. Maybe even bored, because it's not exactly glamorous work.
Yet the effectiveness of process management is undisputed. Companies like McDonald's or Dunkin Donuts can operate thousands of franchises staffed by students, and it's all because of process management.
The study I quoted earlier mentions a small company who changed just ONE process and netted an extra $400,000+ annually. So we know that BPM works.
And the concept of process improvement is easy to understand—examine what we do in our business and improve it by:
- Removing steps
- Reducing tasks to essential people
- Mapping out clear guidelines
…and you get the finely tuned business machine you always wanted, allowing you and your team to focus only on high-value work.
Ahhh, but it’s the getting started that stalls you before you ever get started. That’s where Business Process Management (BPM) for Small Businesses comes into play.
This proven A-B-C implementation plan simplifies and streamlines the high-impact activities in your business. You don’t have to start from scratch. We lay it all out for you.
Here’s what happens as I guide you through creating your new streamlined processes.
Introduction and Overview
You get an overview of business processes and systems with real-life examples. You and your team will understand why it’s so important to optimize your processes.
Step 1: Identify Your High-Impact Business Processes
You learn how to quickly identify those inefficient processes which have the biggest impact on your success. You then pick ONE inefficient, complicated, or costly process to re-design with the help of our training.
Step 2: Document What You’re Doing Now
Here you’ll end up with a detailed document of your current process. Only when you know precisely where you are, can you identify the problems and make changes.
Step 3: Identify Where You Can Do Better
In this step you ask yourself a series of questions that will reveal where there is room for maximum-impact improvement. The answers allow you to decide how to change, delegate, outsource, or automate.
Step 4: Design Your New, Powered-Up Process
Here, we document and map your re-designed process. You’ll know exactly how it will work and who will be involved.
Step 5: Test, Implement & Communicate
Now that you’ve got your streamlined process in hand, we show you how to correctly test it before rolling it out. You also get some powerful suggestions for getting that all-important buy-in and engagement from all your employees once it’s rolled out for good.
Conclusion and Next Steps
By the time you get here, you’ll either have a new process in place, or be ready to implement your new process. And most importantly, from that day forward, you’ll have a permanent, customized system for managing business processes.

Will Business Process Management (BPM) for Small Businesses REALLY Boost My Revenue?
As author Jim Rohn puts it,
"You don't have to change that much for it to make a great deal of difference. A few simple disciplines can have a major impact on how your life works out in the next 90 days, let alone in the next 12 months or the next 3 years."
I’m Andre Palko, Founder and Editor of the Small Business Rainmaker™ and a few other small businesses.
My first small business venture was a disaster. It got off to a good start but then screeched to a grinding halt.
A couple businesses later, we hit our stride when we made it to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the USA.
One of the keys to that success was a small change that made an oversized impact—I paid attention to the processes we were using.
I wish I had Business Process Management (BPM) for Small Businesses from the beginning! It would have saved me a lot of heartache.
What you’ll get in this system is knowledge distilled from my own experience and the experience of other successful entrepreneurs including my two brothers. Among the three of us we’ve operated 10 successful small businesses over the years. They all use good systems.
So yes, it does indeed work.
It’s not rocket science. (Most effective things in small business aren’t.) It’s a simple, effective tool that will save you the heartache of having to figure out how to do this yourself.
