Business Continuation Steps… PLUS

Businesses can fail because of not taking the time to do more than focus on setting the business up and get products prepared with the business. The business continuation steps are focusing on continuation with the business while the steps to make the business succeed are being worked on. Here is Rhapsodie’s list of business steps, I do not have all the information, but I’m sure that it’s some more than many businesses add into processes:

  • Prepare the business properly,
    • Legal work;
    • Financial work;
    • Product development work generally called R&D (Research & Development);
    • Marketing work;
    • Communications work;
    • More
  • Act correctly over time with development & actions in business,
    • People work;
    • Legal work;
    • Financial work;
    • Product development work;
    • Marketing work;
    • Sales work;
    • Communications work;
    • More
  • Keep the business with actions & developments overtime with,
    • People work;
    • Legal work;
    • Financial work;
    • Product development work;
    • Marketing work;
    • Sales work
    • Communications work;
    • More
  • Setting in processes & plans for the future along with continuing the business at present-
    • Takeover; Continuation; Retirement; other business future options
    • People work;
    • Legal work;
    • Financial work;
    • Product development work;
    • Marketing work;
    • Sales work
    • Communications work;
    • More

All of this work with business takes time, energy, effort, constant update, constant development, and constant consideration over the development of the business into a business AND through the business as a business. If the factors are learned in business that’s okay, but if processes and procedures aren’t worked on with the business then FAILURE is the most likely option being prepared with the business.

The business can only continue with actions that assist it to resist failure. Reasons with this were found in my examination of a product commented on at Home Advisor.

Business Failure Can Be Worked on to be Avoided

As my previous post shared, there are products that are of use in siding a home, reasons for failures and successes go beyond the product itself. This came from reading Sandi’s comment about Liquid Siding, notice that she mentions that she could not locate the manufacturer 10 years after the application. The problems with application could have been reduced if the business had taken steps to cut the problems AS WELL AS having worked to improve it’s processes with the product:

Comment Sandi, January 29 [Rhapsodie’s words are added in the square brackets]

Do not use on wood siding!! [Rhapsodie does not agree with this, but because of the results, it can be that the area Sandi lived in also impacted these results. Plus the way her structure was built and when the material was applied.]

We had liquid siding put on about 10 years ago and have had a problem with wood rot on the T111 [called T one eleven] for the past 5 years [likely the T111 was damp in application of the liquid siding this wasn’t the fault of the wood OR the material, it was a fault in the application.]

We will have to completely reside a 4,000 sq ft house. Cannot find the manufacture.

How this comment influences Rhapsodie’s Words about Business

Rhapsodie’s Words based on reading that information are based on application considerations that would be part of the various business steps mentioned above including:

  • People work;
  • Legal work;
  • Financial work;
  • Product development work;
  • Marketing work;
  • Sales work;
  • Communications work;

For instance with the product development work while the business could have merchandised great & their product could have been great, but that doesn’t mean their product appliers OR processes were good. If plans were made to integrate product development with the research time for testing and trials, part of this problem situation could have been reduced for Sandi before she even bought the product.

This product development work could have involved:

  • Product uses with tests in applications;
  • Product uses over times with applications; and
  • Product developments with the tests of uses in the products over time.

This work adds cost to the business before anything is shared with the public, but also while things are being shared with the public. Processes and procedures with legal and financial planning and actions with the business can impact development BUT in addition to that can influence procedures and actions beyond that.

The work with processes and procedures can impact how the finances are used AND how the steps in processes and procedures impact legal costs & values with the business. BUT more than that the

  • People work;
  • Product development work;
  • Marketing work;
  • Sales work; and
  • Communications work.

Can all be integrated into product & process development both before client uses and with client uses.

How many individuals like Sandi could have appreciated working with the business in product development if they were give ‘cost reduction’ options for product uses with tests and trials in use of their home. And with the communications processes prepared for the comments & ‘problems’ & ‘value’ uses with the products in application; uses; the results.

For example if Sandi’s home of T111 was covered by this material when the T111 was ‘damp’ because the wood was bought brand new, then it could mean anyone doing the application on ‘new wood’ could have problems also. In addition to that because DAMP WOOD is often found with new products, the aging processes and procedures with wood could impact the application time frames with this new Liquid Siding application.

Liquid siding from my reading is a form of material like vinyl siding, but being that it’s painted, it seals any product problems, like moisture in wood, beneath the plastic. And what happens when your kids OR you have sweaty wet wear put in plastic bags that are left that way over time. The stinky clothes can rot in the bags if they aren’t cleaned & dried before being put into plastic OR storage again.

Some Business Application Material Considerations

For the business the T111 material could have been new, damp, and needed to be dried before the Liquid Siding was applied.

  • But did it practice communication and processes with the customers it had with problems like that?
  • Did it prepare application tests and processes that could have reduced those problems?
  • Shouldn’t it have prepared for appliers that used the product incorrectly with it’s legal and communication procedures before it suffered the problems from ‘idiots’ in business that do not follow the manufacturer application processes?
  • Shouldn’t it have taken the time to make sure the products were sold with a little more cost for the customers, so that the prices would assist them to continue to care for the users after they had ‘problems’ resulting from bad uses and applications?
  • Were the applicators hired by the business?
    • How did the business prepare & train people doing applications with it’s products?
    • What contracts did the business prepare for applicators working with it’s business?
    • What times & process actions were part of the business application procedures that the contractors were to work with for the business?
  • If applicator’s weren’t hired were the business, were there information guides prepared so other contractors would have application guidance by the business to use?
    • Were there product warranty contracts & actions prepared to handle legal situations resulting from unapproved applicators using the business products inaccurately?

More will always come

A business is always growing. No business will have no additional costs after it’s up and running, which means there will always be additional costs beyond normal business costs when a business is up and running. Taking the time with plans and procedures to make sure actions and processes are prepared for business development with each and every customer & each and every product takes time, effort, energy, consideration, care, and business development with actions over time.

If a business doesn’t take care in it’s planning, processes and product development, process and product uses, plus process and product care there’s need to do more also. This could mean with work in time they can improve things as long as they are prepared to change and develop with time and with actions over time.  BUT if they begin business without taking the time to

  • TEST PRODUCTS in;
    • Test marketing;
    • Test uses;
    • Development tests;
    • Care efforts;
    • Communications with
      • customers we have & customers we could get;
      • business people in house & external;
      • development people in house & external; and
      • others also.
  • TEST METHODS including
    • Development processes & products;
    • Marketing options & actions;
    • Legal preparations, communications, and works;
    • Financial preparations, communications, allowances for mistakes & possible needs, and other works;
    • Customer work including our sharing BUT also including taking time to care to listen, learn, and grow with their comments the negative & the positive. Because no one learns to grow from being told you’re great unless we are also trying to find out what we need to improve on. It’s easier to learn to grow by being told this is not right, I hope  you will try OR do AND if you changed this and other comments that can be ‘negative’, but are actually valuable for the business if it takes time to hear the customers;
    • Communication work is “2/3rds hearing and 1/3rd speaking” Dr. Back, Alfred State College. But communication work is also taking the time to learn more with what is being heard, so it involves interactions and inviting comments so that we can hear more;
    • Product sharing work is always growing and developing. When products are similar to others they are often styled similarly because those options are what work well for the customers. If new products are being shared tests and trials mean customers impact future developments because they should influence what is shared and how it’s shared and over time this progresses and develops;
      • Uses with products- it may be products are developed for certain uses and certain purposes, but customers and their tests and trials can influence what users consider AND try with the products made available and how those are used. If the business is listening to it’s clients they could learn about this and thus it can offer other sharing options not previously considered. While this will mean further research & development it can advance sharing options also;
    • Uses with business should always be prepared for advancing and changing, that’s why research and development are so important as are the communications and interactions with customers.
  • ADDING
    • TIME TO ALLOW QUALITY TO BE LEARNED IN APPLICATIONS &
      • with TYPES of MATERIALS &
      • with TYPES OF MATERIAL &
    • TO MAKE SURE THIS IS CONTINUED OVER TIME,
  • can assist a business in avoiding failure. This is not a guarantee, but it’s a tool that can be of assistance.

For Any Business

For anyone who doesn’t consider the future with their actions of the present can be preparing for some sorts of failure. If mom & dad train their kids to be as they are how with their kids develop to be adults which are more than kids as they are?

Exterior Work my Comments at Home Advisor

Because of comments I made at Home Advisor sharing my information I’m adding my writing about MULTIPLE COMMENTS on A HOME ADVISOR PAGE THAT were made by me. This is in case anyone comes to this site because I made those comments. Often I do not share information about home work, but I’ve done research, have done painting, and have tried to make sure I learn how to do work before taking the time to do it.

After learning how to do work I try to make sure the actions I tried live well over time. So the application of plastic siding instead of paint likely have multiple variables that impact the coverage beyond the materials used. Because of some knowledge gained with time & work in exterior paint jobs as well as ideas from the comments on that Liquid Siding- Worth a Look? Home Advisor page, I’m adding that information here for reference.

Planning to do outside work is generally a normal consideration for homeowners around this time of year, being spring. The options for outside work depend, but property care is a constant endeavor, so there are often tasks that are shifted and varied depending on materials considered and costs factored with these considerations. Many individuals that don’t consider the future, are so short term in what is considered that they fail to calculate future care costs and values when considering options for the present. Money is generally the main cost consideration, but time, energy, effort, care needs, work efforts, problem costs from lack of care impact all of these decisions.

When calculation the costs and values in products and materials for work and for projects there are many options and many considerations. For instance with the Liquid Siding, what is the material is as important as how is the material applied and who does the application. That’s why I shared my comments on Home Advisor, because the liquid vinyl ‘paint’ material seems wonderful versus normal paint being that if applied correctly the care over time is tremendously reduced.

Comments– on the Home Advisor page about Liquid Siding

Marie Harsh, July 3:

I had liquid siding put on my house 10 yrs ago. The cost was very fair. To this day it still looks as good as it did from day 1, I haven’t had to do any upkeep and the bugs don’t like it.

Rhapsodie’s Words in response to Marie’s Comments with Additional Notes

But what product did Marie use? &

What application process was used &

Who were the appliers?

At times many people do not read the instructions, at times people that read the instruction do not follow the instructions correctly either so they end up with product problems.

For materials like paints the applications vary with the form of the product, spray paint versus applicator paints have various pros & cons with different application procedures & needs. Some application considerations include temperatures & humidity levels with applications.

Often products mention temperatures to be above OR between AND

  • this may not mean atmospheric temperatures, but SURFACE TEMPERATURES, humidity levels to be under.
    • Painters working in the correct atmosphere may still need to work on different surface locations with those correct conditions because of various surfaces and the needs with those.
      • Like applying paint on the south in the middle of the day IS BAD,
        • when the sun was out all day in the evening after the sun sets while the times are dry can be better.
        • OR in the morning if the night was dry and the humidity level was correct.]

Professional painters organize application times and patterns based on various application needs and processes with the materials, the surfaces, and the time needs with that work. Anyone trying to cut the application times, with how they do the work and when they do it are likely to cause future problems AND reduce the lifespan of the work values because of their actions.

For the Liquid Vinyl Siding, because the material is ‘newer’ the application methods aren’t as widely broadcast OR experimented with as are methods and actions with painting. Because of that businesses selling or sharing those products should have taken the time to develop good use processes. Sandi suffered because this wasn’t done when she used the product, she blamed the wood surface, but I’m sure there were multiple factors impacting that application AND the results being suffered by her and her family.

Rhapsodie’s Words About Products & Procedures from this comment are added into an additional page, but were shared at Home Advisor also.
