  • Delegation is one of the things that all of us could improve on more because it’s about leveraging as much as we can our time and skills when it comes to outsourcing.
  • We need to bear in mind the fact that there are other competent people out there that can do the job for us. They could be in another country or they could have a different culture and that’s okay.
  • Derek encourages the listeners to write a one-page strategic plan. List down your milestones, stepping stones and how you can get to your 5 and 10-year goals. Include the core competencies of your business, the strategic intellectual property of your business and also the key roles and functions within your business.
  • The next one is business process mapping. It’s about identifying and delineating processes so that they can be mapped out and better managed and optimized.
  • Derek also suggests to the listeners as an exercise to go through a task delegation assessment where they list the key things that they do or the roles they play in their respective businesses.
  • Within the outsource activation consultation Derek, including you will then look at the exercises and work through the results and give you great context of what can be achieved with outsourcing plugged into your business.
