What is Business? And who is a Businessman

Business is deciding the place, product, price and profit in the production along with continuous promotion. All this is done by the business man who is operating the steering of the business unit. He should be well versed in his jobs and approaches with proper and perfect managerial skills. Managerial skills are those expert talents which help the business man work directly and indirectly with multiple hands and machines. So management is basically, the art of getting things done by others. So a business man should know his business and also be an expert in getting things done by others through his managerial skills.

Business aspirations are broad and varied. It is to contribute actively in business, public and personal business achievements. Our energies and resources should be focused on supporting entrepreneurial efforts and gaining insight into the dynamics of business management. It is our daily challenges and experiences, which give enormous strength for success and livelihood in the future. Committing and sticking with a refined set of priorities and enduring continual challenges will be the focus of any dynamic Business man.

Business man should exhibit both Intrapreneur and Entrepreneurial skills. Intrapreneural skill is the capacity of the business man within his organization or the unit of business. Entrepreneurial skills are that extraordinary skills which put him on the highest pedestal in the business world around the globe. Both the qualities of the business man are highly essential as the business man has to prove his metal both inside and outside the organization. This gains him respect, confidence, and leaves him with the highest aspirations to become a successful business man.

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.
