How to organize the work of the unit
List the goals and objectives that are put before the unit. As a rule, the Department is not created in isolation: it is directly linked with the work of the entire company and subordinated to the overall strategy. Define the results you expect from the unit.
Before equip unit personnel, identify how all the tasks can be done in the least amount of people. After this, enter the appropriate specialists. Make each of them a clear job description that is not just a formal document, but a guide to action. Define a hierarchy between subordinates in the Department and assign responsibility for each. Decide which staff member will replace the absent colleague.
Delegate authority to the head unit. Even in a small working group should be responsible for the end result. Don't try to understand all of the nuances of the process — allow the boss to efficiently do their job and present you with its results.
Decide how you will monitor workflow for the unit. It is advisable at the beginning of a particular reporting period (month, quarter) to issue the task list. During this time, the entire Department or each employee must submit an interim report to control the work. At the end of the designated period, the unit should report on the results. This may be the final meeting, a presentation or a standard report.
Increase the powers of the Department, if the result of work suits you and you can see the potential. One of the practiced ways of organizing the activities of the division is the introduction of self-financing. This method increases the degree of risk and responsibility, but allows it to achieve the best results.
