Bad Sushi Moments: Protecting Your Business from Sudden Knowledge Loss

July 15, 2024

In a recent LinkedIn article, I shared a crucial mental model for business owners and leaders.

Here's what you need to know:

What's a "Bad Sushi Moment"?

It's when a single person holds critical knowledge about your business. If they suddenly leave, your company could be at serious risk.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Even loyal team members can unexpectedly depart
  2. Undocumented processes are a ticking time bomb
  3. The "it won't happen to us" mindset is dangerous
  4. Rapid scaling often leads to knowledge silos
  5. Simple steps can dramatically reduce this risk

How to Protect Your Business:

  • Identify critical tasks and who performs them
  • Document processes, passwords, and systems
  • Store information securely but accessibly
  • Regularly review and update this information

Don't wait for a crisis. Start "downloading" critical knowledge today.
