The Gydeline Method

When we work with organisations we use an approach to ensure that an organisation is simplified and improved.

Showing the Gydeline Method

Gydeline applies a consistent method with every customer.  We provide you with the advice, guidance, tools and outputs that you need to achieve stability and growth.

Every customer has different needs, starting place and requirements. 

Every organisation needs to improve something on the Gydeline:

VISION

What drives you

What are your goals, targets, aspirations?  How do you want to be perceived by your Contacts and People?  Understanding and focusing on your Vision provides the drive for your organisation. (Blog Article)

VALUES

What you live by​

Can you clearly state the principles, ethics and moral position of your organisation?  These Values affect the way the organisation runs and works.  Values need to be understood to establish the best Policies (Blog Article)

KEYSTONES

What you use to do it​

Every organisation has the same basic Keystones; elements that are used to deliver the services and products offered. Which of these Keystones does your organisation need to prioritise? (Blog Article)

FUNCTIONS

What expertise you require​

There are groups of skills and knowledge which are needed to run an organisation effectively.  Have you got the expertise required to hand? How can you develop your People to do these functions in the best way?

ACTIVITIES

What needs to be done

Each Business Function provides specific outputs to keep an organisation running smoothly.  Are you doing everything that is required? Can you keep up with changes in the law and best practice?

CORE

How you are organised​

You need to translate your aspirations into meaningful action. How are you going to set-up to achieve them? Is the team with you? Do you know what to do if the worst happens? Can you track your success? 

POLICY

How you've chosen to do it​

Setting down what you plan to do and the rule of getting it done is a cornerstone of good business.  Do you know what you are doing, where you are going?  Do your People understand it?

PROCESS

In what order you do it​

You know what you want to do, but what is the best way to achieve it?  Defining and documenting your processes allows for efficient decision making, rapid progress and simplified  procedures.

PROCEDURE

How you do it​

Consistency, reliability and repeatability comes from documenting how to properly do a step in a process.  Do you have a easy and simple method of ensuring that things are right first time, every time?

EVIDENCE

What you did

Processes established and procedures implemented, but can you prove they are being followed?  Collecting evidence as you work is the best way to ensure compliance and to prove it to others, when needed.

ARTEFACTS

How you set it up​

Documenting how things are setup, integrated and tested allows an organisation to seamlessly deal with changes in People and Physical elements.  Do you know how everything is done in your business?

ROLES

Who does it for you​

Knowing who is accountable, responsible, trained and skilled in doing something in your organisation provides the basis for better guaranteed outcomes.  Are you clear on who does what in your business?

SYSTEMS

What you used to do it​

From paper filing to complex computerisation, all systems need to be understood and documented to ensure change and failures have little impact on the business.  Can you show how your systems work?
