PMCS for your VOSB

Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) for your Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB).  Today, pulling maintenance on your business is just as important as when you pulled maintenance on your vehicle or other equipment all those years ago as a young troop.  After you were properly trained, tested and qualified, your leaders held you responsible and accountable for that (fill in the blank).

In my world, at that time, it was an M109A2 155mm Self-Propelled Howitzer.  A multi-million dollar piece of equipment that was like the American Express credit card to the Infantry and Armor units we supported.  There position was “Never leave home without it.”  Since the Field Artillery is the “King of Battle,” not being ready at a moments notice was never an option.  Ahhh, what great memories.  Now, it’s back to our story.

We were qualified to perform all the maintenance, checks and services listed in the – 10.  Anything above that was referred to a higher level of maintenance.  It’s very similar in business as well.  There are some areas that you are qualified to check and others that you are not (this will obviously depend on your education, background and expertise).  It’s your responsibility to learn what those things are and get busy checking them – daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly – whatever is necessary.

It’s also your responsibility to learn what areas of your business require a higher level of expertise than you possess.  When you identify those areas, don’t hesitate to elevate those requirements to a higher level of maintenance.  You would never hesitate to elevate problems with your M109A2 to a higher maintenance – don’t hesitate with your VOSB either.

See you on the high ground!
