The book uses the story of two brothers, Stephen and John, to illustrate the different effect an Organised Business has on the owner of the business over a dis-organised one. These two sibling entrepreneurs both run the same type of business, selling the same product but in different locations. The main difference between the two businesses is that Stephen’s business is organised and John’s isn’t.
John suffers because his business is dis-organised, in fact, it makes him unhappy. Things never seem to go right, the products are delivered late, customers are unhappy, he can’t seem to get his employees to do what needs to be done. John also takes his work home with him, it never seems to stop and despite working all the hours god sends, the business isn’t profitable.
Stephen, on the other hand, is happy that his business is making the contribution to his life that he wants and that things are going in the right direction. Internally things work, products go out on time, customers are happy. Of course things still go wrong but when they do there are systems and procedures in place to ensure they are corrected. Stephen, his team and his business operate with systems at their heart and are always looking to find the best way of doing things. Stephen’s business is profitable, he has a handle on the finances and, best of all, the business doesn’t rule his life.
