Often those in the top levels of a business are entrenched in having a business transition occur without having taken an accurate pulse as to what is actually involved. This occurs in large and small businesses alike.
An accurate assessment of capacity relies on having your employees provide honest feedback as to what is on their plates currently along with their ability to take more on and have it turn out. Getting real as to what can take place is of course dependent on having honest feedback from employees.
Honesty requires trust. Ensure you have that trust and that you are willing to have certain tasks be re-assigned, or have additional help brought in on a temporary basis to ease the strain of the current workload.
Assessing the capacity of your teams or teams and then taking the action necessary to ensure your team or teams have the necessary resources and support is crucial to the success of the business transition.
