My earlier posts were specifically aimed to build and manage virtual organizations but this one is good for regular business/individuals as well.
Sharada Sreedhar is one of a kind marketing executive that I have ever known, not only for her success in profession but also for her operation style. She has hired a secretary for managing office and two marketing executives. The office secretary also helps her and others to followup with the clients and handles the calls too.
The key difference in her operation is about the way she simplifies the interoffice communication process. She and her marketing assistants meet up only on weekends at office and yet they are able generate leads and run a successful business.
The process is all about document sharing without any hi-fi systems/process or CRM software. All her sharing is done using Office Live Workspace.
Here is how they take advantage of Office Live Workspace.
Sharada and the marketing executives update their business visits/daily report towards end of the day using an Microsoft Excel workbook to Office Live Workspaces.
Most marketing companies do have a daily report system. The executives generally hands over the report directly or emails it to their respective bosses. Boss checks the daily reports and decides next course of action on each business lead. Hence boss generally works late and finds time only to propagate marketing.
Sharada has delegated this responsibility to Reeta – her secretary. Shared documents can be checked and updated by Reeta and she makes the follow up calls, updates any new status on the same document and also alerts relevant executives about any immediate attention required.
