>>> What is a system?
Definition: a system is an organized collection of parts (or subsystems) that are highly integrated to accomplish an overall goal
Your business is the system.
>>> So what are subsystems?
Definition: a subsystem is a self-contained system within a larger system
There are 4 primary subsystems in every business and they are:
Marketing (Getting Business)
Fulfillment (Doing Business)
Operations (Running Business)
Management (Guiding Business)
As you can imagine, there are subsystems within subsystems.
It's high-level stuff y'all, but you can quickly understand how all subsystems are connected to form the overall system to accomplish an overall goal.
Therefore, if you are considering hiring a Systems Strategist for your business keep these 4 things in mind:
Be sure to understand which subsystem(s) you need help with. This will save you and your systems strategist time and your energy can be spent on what will have the most impact in your business in the least amount of time.
Be sure to ask your potential systems strategist specific questions regarding their experience and ability to help you with your subsystem(s). Your subsystems are the heartbeat of your business.
Be sure to research and explore your potential systems strategists' website and social media accounts. This will allow you an opportunity to see how well put together their subsystems are and whether or not you will "mesh" as co-laborers (1 Corinthians 3:9) setting up your subsystems.
Lastly, be sure to share all pertinent information needed to successfully setup your subsystems. This is not the time to hold back. The clearer you are regarding your business vision, the clearer you will communicate with your potential system strategist; and the happier you will be with the outcome.
