Assessment of Business Capacity

The experiences bring you face to face with significant challenges that required managing conflicting priorities. It helps you understand that in any organizational situation, two concurrent sets of priorities exist – one set of priorities determine the overall objectives of the organization while the second set, which are often more important in influencing the eventual outcome of the first set of priorities, deal with the personal aspirations of the key players within the organization and their objectives.

Understanding, accepting and managing the personal aspiration of the key constituents is a crucial requirement in determining business towards success in any organizational setting. Over reliance on the generation of new ideas and market focus as a way to compensate for your inability and unwillingness to engage in internal political thinking will cost us dearly. While good ideas are important for organizational vitality, the willingness of the organization to embrace them and the underlying political currents are just as important. As we plan our business journey, adapting attitude to political thinking and organizational dynamics will be an important priority.

Cultivating a keen sense of understanding of the subtle needs of the people is very essential. It gives us an opportunity to lead and nurture the hopes and dreams of a fundamental necessity of strong business patterns to suit the needs of business.

Experiences along with many other engagements shape business and its constant success.
