My company, Bit-Wizards Custom Software Solutions has been in business for 10 Years. Over that 10 year period, we have worked to build a successful Custom Software and IT Services firm. One of our biggest challenges was developing a corporate culture that ensures the growth and success of our company. One result of those efforts is that I have developed a set of rules or guidelines for team member to live by and aid in the success of our thriving company. Over and over again I have vocalized these rules to our staff until I began to sound like a broken record. In some cases my engineers will finish my sentences before I do.
A wise business mentor once told me that you know you have successfully communicated your message to your staff when they mock you or finish your sentences. To further drive my message to our staff I put these rules down on paper and had them made into a poster to display in the office. One thing that I know to be true after 10 years in business is that services companies depend on developing customer relationships. The success of the company is largely dependent on the people in the company. Setting the right culture in your company will aid in the success of that company. I hope you will find these rules helpful.
Any entrepreneur will tell you that starting a business takes a lot of time, energy, and, of course, the right people. But obviously, there is more that goes into creating a successful business. When successful business CEOs are asked, the common denominator with every great company is having the right people -- and having them in the right places.
Several years ago my family moved from San Antonio, Texas to a small community in central Texas. It was not a city or a town, but rather it was a village, the Village of Salado (www.salado.com ).
I learned some tips at the 404 Conference that will help you avoid a technology project failure at your company, and it all begins with Communication.
