WEBS was designed to be used as like a menu in a restaurant. If you are there for dinner, you wouldn’t spend all your time reading the breakfast portion of the menu because that would be a complete waste of time, right?
Instead, when it is dinner time, you focus your attention on the dinner section and then select the meal you desire.
WEBS functions the same way. It is not meant to be read from end to end.
If you attempt do read all of WEBS from start to finish, not only will you have wasted a ton of time, but you will very likely feel overwhelmed as a result because WEBS contains a large number of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP)
The magic of WEBS is that it provides you with an SOP for virtually every aspect of your business.
If you are focused on sourcing new products, the only section you need to use is the product sourcing section – and even then, you don’t need to read it from start to finish.
Remember, WEBS is not a training course.
Instead, WEBS is a collection of SOPs that have been designed to be used as you need each one. When you use one, you simply assign it to a member of your team. Once they receive the notification that you have assigned the SOP (we call it a workflow) to them, they will read the instructions and perform the task to completion.
It is that simple!
