Business Administration/Operations Management
Operating a business takes a lot of hard work. Many business owners start their business with great knowledge of their area of expertise, such as being a great chef of the restaurant, excellent carpenter of a home improvement company, or a great daycare provider. They have great ideas but soon run into challenges due to the lack of essential skills needed to operate and manage the “business” aspects. These essential skills are found in the principles of business administration/operations management.
Business Administration is simply management of a business. The administration of a business includes the performance of business operations which include the efficient organization of people and other resources to direct activities toward common goals and objectives. It also encompasses strategic planning and making informed decisions.
E 50 Solutions, LLC analyzes business practices and creates a customized approach to enhance your business operations.
Managing grants can be quite intimidating for small organizations. Writing a good proposal and getting awarded is just half the battle. Equally important, you have to be keenly knowledgeable of regulatory compliance and reporting requirements to successfully manage grants.
E 50 Solutions, LLC provides technical assistance for all the administrative tasks required to properly manage grant funds, interpret terms and conditions, adhere to reporting requirements, and ensure regulatory compliance in a way that meets generally accepted standards as well as the requirements of the grantor.
Business Continuity of Operations Planning
Planning for the unexpected is usually not at the forefront for many businesses. However, in today’s world, many businesses are finding out the importance of continuity of operations planning way too late. With increasing adverse weather events and other potential threats, having plans in place to minimize your business downtime in the event of an interruption in normal business operations is important.
E 50 Solutions, LLC assists your business with creating systems of prevention, mitigation, and recovery to address potential threats as well as provide guidance to mitigate the chance of prolonged interruptions in your business’ critical functions during an emergency.
Quality Improvement Solutions
Reviewing your business practices and operations should be a frequent activity to stay relevant in this ever-changing environment. Quality Improvement (QI) is a systematic, formal approach to analyze practices, operations, and efforts to improve performance. Understanding and properly implementing quality improvement solutions are essential to a well-functioning business and is necessary for any business interested in efficiency.
Using a variety of QI models, E 50 Solutions, LLC will help you collect and analyze your business practices/processes to create solutions to increase efficiency and effectiveness.
Cultural Diversity Training
Understanding and embracing cultural diversity is necessary for all businesses. It is important to understand how cultural diversity impacts your business and what actions are needed to foster an environment of inclusion. This topic can be very intimidating for businesses, but it is important to develop cultural competencies to foster better relationships with employees and customers.
E 50 Solutions, LLC offers training to help you identify the values that are important in supporting cultural differences and how to adapt actions to foster better communications among employees, clients, and customers resulting in increased productivity and a healthier work environment.
