Modern businesses have separated themselves from their more traditional counterparts in many ways. From improving technologies in business telephone systems right down to the minutiae of day-to-day operations, companies have been finding new and, in some ways, better solutions to enhancing productivity and motivation. The best example of this is decentralization.
Decentralized businesses don’t follow the usual leadership roles most other businesses do. This results in a lot of advantages, but it can also have some drawbacks. Our business experts at One Call give you an overview of decentralized organizations as well as the communication solutions that make them work below.
What Is Decentralization?
Take, for example, a manager named John. John has been offered a good but time-sensitive deal with Wilson Telecommunication to lower the cost of business communications. Normally, he would need to go through hoops to get his superiors to approve this deal, and the whole process could take days. In a decentralized business, however, he’s empowered to make decisions based on his best judgment. Mid- to low-level employees are encouraged to contribute to how daily operations are run, giving them more motivation and increasing productivity.
Benefits of Decentralized Businesses
The main objective and advantage of decentralization is to eliminate as much bureaucratic red tape as possible, giving some level of control to your team of managers to make decisions on a day-to-day basis. This control is often limited to certain amounts of money, but the idea is to streamline decision-making, which leads to faster operations.
Challenges of Decentralization
Decentralization relies heavily on proper communication. Talk to your carrier about getting the latest Wilson telephone to accommodate the increased demand in correspondence between your team as you slowly decentralize your business. Explore added features that can make collaboration easier with services like voicemail-to-email and many others.
