Welcome to INNsider Tips.

I have mentioned in the past that you have to think of your property as a franchise and that your operations manual is your first property model.

 .

.

Today’s tip is how to start thinking of your property model as a systems-dependent business, not a people-dependent business.

 .

Your system, your operations, has to work flawlessly, even without you.

Every possible detail of your business system will be first tested and scrutinized intensively at your property model.

 .

“There will be no detail too trivial, you will have to pay attention to all the little things.”

 .

And then what you should soon begin to realize, is that you are now working on your business and not in it.

 .

“Your life and business are two totally separate things.”

 .

What considerations will you have to take and factor when working with your property model?

 

  1. Your property model has to work with people at the lowest possible skill level.

 .

  1. Your property model will stand out as a place of incredible order.

 .

  1. Your property model will have a uniform colour (branding), dress and facility code.

 .

  1. Your property model will provide consistent predictable service to your customers.

 .

  1. All the work at your property model will be documented in the operations manual.

 .

  1. Your property model will deliver consistent value to your customers, employees, suppliers and lenders, above and beyond their expectations.

 .

Now don’t get stressed, this is going to be a continuous work in progress with each aspect of your property model going through a natural progression.

 .

They will be to innovate the initial thoughts measuring the viability and then adapting and adding it to the operations manual.

 .

Now, you have to set your criteria, your benchmarks.

 

When do you wish your property model to be completed?

  • In one year?

 .

  • Three?

 .

  • 10 years?

 .

Who is your clientele?

  • Local?

 .

  • Regional?

 .

  • International?

 .

Are your clientele

  • Business people?

 .

  • Families?

 .

  • Singles?

 .

What are your criteria regarding

  • Customer service?

 .

  • Food Service?

 .

  • Cleanliness?

 .

  • Employee training?

                                      and on and on.

 .

If you don’t have firm criteria, your standards will be all over the place.

This is going to be a lot of work, but you don’t have to do it all at once, it will be ongoing.
