Small Companies Success

Thursday, 26. July 2012

When initiating a business, the entrepreneurs pass for a delayed process and the success alone comes with work and planning very. Unhappyly, this is the reality of many entrepreneurs. Second research carried through for the Service of Support to the Micron and Small Companies of So Paulo (Sebrae) in 2010, 58% of the small business companies close the doors before completing five years. Although to be a high index, the study it shows a fall if comparative with year 2000, when the tax of mortality of the micron and small companies arrived 71% in the same period. World-wide specialist in corporative management makes me to this to remember the definition of the cycles of life of the companies pointed by Ichak Adizes. As well as Adizes, I believe that it has specific characteristics for each phase: at the beginning a leader has itself who acts of intuitiva form, later the company passes for stages where she acts without defined lines of direction, but at some moment she comes the professionalization and planning, that is vital for the success of the business. I see that some companies if hold well in relation to the growth and act sufficiently in professionalized way.

The Natura is a case of success, that was born in 1969, from a laboratory and a small store, and grew vertiginously. Today it counts on prescription of R$ 5.1 billion and grows between 20% and 40% to the year. For acting in a competitive and very innovative market, the company always adds new models of management to adjust itself to the current reality. But and the companies of small average transport? They also have that to be aggressive and to be intent how much to the professionalization, because the more based it is the process, greaters will be the success possibilities.

The Manufacturing Challenge

Monday, 16. July 2012

A manufacturer is a big deal, only if you have millions to invest in infrastructure, patents, research, and shipping receipts. As Retailer. It is a great opportunity, only if you can afford the cost of franchising, weeks of seven days of work, advertising, inventory and employee problems.

The largest personal fortunes in recent decades were made by people who found better ways to distribute things. For example, owners of companies like Wal Mart, FedEx, Amazon.com, they are all distributors. What differentiates an entrepreneur from the other workers do not receive a fixed salary for what he does but risking their time, financial resources and effort in the hope of better earnings than working for wages. The price of job security is limited income. For the entrepreneur there are no limits.

No doubt to be an entrepreneur you need certain personal characteristics: they are generally people who prefer to send be sent, they trust their own abilities, willing to risk, unusual people and think long term. The employer is a Leader Whatever your attitude or way of being, the employer must become a leader. There are many ways to direct an undertaker but the fact that lead others to follow him is the essence of the work of an entrepreneur. In other words it is normal that a successful entrepreneur has or acquires the ability enthusiastic and convey to others the excitement. This explains why smart people but indecisive never become good entrepreneurs, the ability to lead goes beyond mere intelligence or technical skill, is also a question of character. The ability to lead should be developed and perfected every day and must agree to the point of view and personality of the entrepreneur. In general there are two major styles of leadership: those who emphasize the results (goal setting and compliance) and those who put emphasis on people (reward, motivation, good human relations.)
