Bill runs a small weekly magazine business consisting of a few copywriters and journalists, in addition to the printers. He feels extremely drained because he writes and reviews 25 articles per week. He thinks his business is too important to him, and he often micromanages issues. He also feels, however, that creativity and quality of work suffer because of this. How will his current system of work affect his business and team? How can Bill improve his quality of work?
I believe that Bill’s style of working will have a negative impact on the magazine because of the following reasons –
1. Even after employing a team of Writers and Journalists Bill spends most of the time working himself which will send out a negative message to his team as they will feel that bill is not willing to share the responsibilities with them and they are not being used as an asset in the team. Being the owner and Editor of his magazine Bill must spend more time in management activities rather than writing.
