Also, Tonkin uses the Four P's Framework for business systems:

** Policy (Why?)

** Process (What steps are involved?)

** Procedure (What are the necessary details?)

** Props (How to deliver systems – check-lists, signs, videos, etc.)

You don’t have to systemise everything – just core functions that cannot experience failure. Initially, you will have to dedicate costs to create the business systems. However, you are benefiting from day one. The initial costs save you time and money in the long run.
