Implementation requires 3 Ds

Decisions + Driving + Doing = Implementation

When it comes to getting things done in your ecommerce business, DOING is often the default priority.

But it’s actually the first 2 Ds in the formula that are critical to the success of any project, and without the first two, the doing piece can quickly get messy.

DECISIONS – Who in your business is responsible for making the decisions about what needs to be done? When things need to be done by? How they need to be done, and by Whom?

DRIVING – Who is driving all the activities/tasks to make sure whatever was decided on actually gets done?

Without solid decision making, and a driving force to wrangle all the moving pieces, the 3rd D (DOING) may not happen at all. And if it does, it will likely be a frustrating process for all involved.

As you continue to build your ecommerce business, it’s imperative that you are crystal clear on your role in Decision Making and Driving.

Ideally, as the business owner, you are not involved in any of the day-to-day Doing in your business – and if you are, only for very specific tasks.

Once you hit a certain level (multiple 6-figures and beyond) being the Driver also gets very difficult as the CEO. And it’s no longer the highest and best use of your time. << Staying in the Driver seat for too long is what creates a huge bottleneck in many ecommerce businesses.

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t also have to make every single decision in your business?

Decision fatigue is a very real thing, and it can burn you out as the business owner, and as a result, stall the growth of your business.

As an operations support team, all 3 Ds are what we take care of with and for our clients.

When you have an operations lead and supporting team to make decisions, drive progress and ensure implementation is smooth, the sky truly is the limit for your ecommerce business.

We actually think implementation requires 4Ds …. the fourth one is a Dream Team 😀

Questions about what this kind of Business Operations Management (aka Dream Team support) could look like in your ecommerce business?

We’d love to connect and learn more about your business, your goals, and the current state of the 3 Ds in your business.
