The Everchanging Business Industry.
Aspiring entrepreneurs are planning their way to a new business across the world every day. It is a journey that requires a lot of hard work, and if you succeed, the rewards of entrepreneurship are worth the obstacles that you face on the road to success.
- To start a business, you must have an idea in your mind.
- Get together with your team/advisors to find the best possible way forward.
- Something that you are either knowledgeable about, or something that interests you.
- Analyse the market situation to ascertain the credibility of your idea.
- After narrowing down on a couple of ideas, start researching on the existing close competitors and figure out how you can do better than them.
- If you can find ways to beat competition, go ahead.
A Business Plan
- A business plan describes the aim of your company and how you will achieve it.
- It clarifies your ideas, analyses potential problems, measures success by setting goals.
- Take out one hour to analyse your overall business.
- Yes, you can make progress in just one hour!
- Set aside quiet time to read through your business plan, cover to cover, even if your business is old and you have done this ten of times before.
- Your real task here is to read and contemplate your plan.
- Pay attention to how you feel as you do this, and jot down any ideas or thoughts that come to mind.
- Don’t be hard on yourself. If your current business reality isn’t the same as your plan projected, there are lessons to learn and things to avoid doing in the coming year.
- Don’t forget to celebrate your success!
Change is the ever-increasing, constantly-challenging force in the market. A change in system cannot be identified easily and it is difficult to know exactly how it happens. If you are flexible, you will be better prepared to face change. Change can be managed by a systematic approach towards business and individual.
- A complex system is always dependent on various small systems to continue its operations.
- If you reduce the dependence on any system you can work more independently.
- Independent business system is free from outside control.
- Usually small businesses are less dependent on others. Interdependence is of different types.
- Sequential Interdependence – occurs when one unit in the overall process produces an output necessary for the performance of the next unit.
- Reciprocal Interdependence – is similar to sequential interdependence in that the output of one department becomes the input of another, with the addition of being cyclical. This is the most complex form of dependence.
- Pooled Interdependence – each department performs separately and are not directly dependent on each other. However, this indirect dependence on the performance of others may directly affect the overall process of business.
- This is a discrete mishap at the time of work, leading to physical or mental occupational injury.
- The more complex a system is, the higher the probability of something eventually going wrong.
- Normal accidents describe the social side of technological risk.
- System complexity makes failure inevitable.
- Complexities may add new categories of accidents.
- A degree of complexity occurs when no operator can immediately foresee the consequences of a given action in the system.
- Risk is an inevitable part of business. From financial risks, such as investments, to unwelcome threats, new market competitors permeate the business world and can pop up at any time.
- Impact of changes in technological evolutions or customer demand could elevate risk.
- As a small business owner, it’s your job to properly equip your business with risk management strategies so that you can be ready to meet those risks head-on and fight them off with minimal setbacks to your business operations.
- More dependent you are on something, higher is the risk associated with it. Strategic risks affect the ability of your business to reach its goals.
- Another important component of small business system is uncertainty.
- A state of having limited knowledge where it is impossible to exactly describe the existing state, a future outcome, or more than one possible outcomes.
- If you’ve been in business for some time, you understand that circumstances change and unforeseeable events occurs. Uncertainty often gets blamed for inaction.
- Accepting uncertainty is accepting reality.
- You cannot see the future; however, you can make smart choices to prepare well for it.
- Not only will this provide you peace of mind, but you’re more likely to respond quickly and effectively when trouble strikes.
