Our Usual ProcessFirst, I’d like to explain what our end-of-year process normally involves. Step one entails gathering information and projections for the future in our industry. I call my contacts to find out what materials might have price increases, as well as my attorney and accountant to get insight into changing regulations or overall concerns.
Second, I look to my team for their input and ideas. I want Roofing & More to be a company that people are proud to work with, and a place that they look forward to being each day. In order to make that happen, it’s important to regularly ask these questions:
- What changes do we need to make?
- Do our systems work well and help our employees?
- How is the work-life balance?
Then it’s time to plan for next year. I gather team members from each department in a planning committee where we can brainstorm, swap ideas and ask questions. This is a group process that ultimately benefits everyone in the next year, from employees to our partners and especially customers.
COVID-19When it comes to planning for 2021, much of our process has remained the same, but we must allow some room for continued adjustments due to COVID-19. As of now, I am planning the first quarter of 2021 as if it were right now – being conservative about targets in anticipation of continued concerns over the virus. Of course, the situation could improve by then, but it is okay to do better than planned! A plan doesn’t restrict your business from doing well but makes you prepared for what may come.
