Entrepreneurs tend to fall into one of 4 traditional types of organizational structures, Jake Jordan, Jay Maymi, and Suzanne Johns discuss these in detail on Business 1st Responders Podcast. Listen in to learn about them:
- Specialty group
- Divisional group
- Matrix – combo
Depending on how your structure is defined, you will have different challenges to your growth. How to digitize, how to work from ome effectively and not skip a beat? The Business 1st Responders talk about decentralizing and how a team based approach can actually get more done in some cases.
When the boss isn’t the boss anymore, how do things get done? Everyone seems to like to work from home, but it can be difficult for an entrepreneur to justify the cost of employees working from home. Additionally, how will you keep and attract qualified individuals with a great work ethic?
“Entrepreneurs are control freaks. That’s why they started a business!” ~ Suzanne Johns
