Question 1
Businesses need to be built on a stable, predictable as well as consistent aptitude. The
processes must be designed in a way that would ensure consistent output, by controlling
employee’s behaviors that will be able to produce the different outcomes. In today’s world, it
has become a greater challenge for the companies to be able to remain competitive.
The consultants, academics, as well as businessmen, need to be able to do a better job at
sharing their ideas and knowledge, so as to come up with the practical solutions which might be
able to make a difference. Having this in mind, every company would be able to come up with
solutions that will enable them to to survive in harsh business environments (Hammer, 2003).
Some of these survivals tactics will help all the stakeholders and not just the
shareholders. More so, they must be permanent solutions that will help the company to be able to
surpass its drawbacks. The company administration must focus on all stakeholders, including the
staff, investors and consumers. This will enable every party of the company to be able to focus
more on the loyalty of the organization, and in turn, they will be able to adapt as well as support
the company as it tries to navigate the future challenges.
What tends to drag most of the companies behind and prevent them from moving forward
in terms of tackling the challenges is failing to undergo a transformative shift. The current
business trends need corporates to adopt to the rapid evolving changes easily. This aspect has
been made possible by heightening of innovativeness and improvement of technology in the
field.
