The world of entrepreneurship has been turning on a new leaf for the last half a century. The gradient of competition has been increasing, and new innovative methods of operation must be set into motion for entrepreneur organizations to stand the fierce hostility in the market. However, not every firm can follow in the perfect footsteps outlined for survival and growth, which leads to their inevitable demise.
In any business operation, some common mistakes occur, which reduce the overall efficiency and induce bureaucracy into the chain of command, making the company very unresponsive to stimulations of demand change. Some of the most common practices are inscribed below:
- Worker motivation:
In many firms, the mental health of workers is overlooked. The psyche of every worker directly influences the way they act in their profession. The rapid use of division of labor, most of the time without any rotation, and few incentives lower the motivation of every worker involved in the mechanism of operations. Thereby, the desire to put forward a good and efficient task slowly diminishes, lowering the quality of work accomplished. And, this spreads from a micro-scale to a macro scale, ultimately affecting the entire final production levels of a business. Slowly, but surely, buyers digress from those firms due to their low-quality products and look towards other rivals in the market, those that upheld quality.
- Poor communication:
As a firm grows larger and larger, the firms usually employ more and more employees to oversee the entire operations. However, due to such an influx of people, some problems sprout. The information from the ground floor to the board of directors takes a huge amount of time to creep up since it has to be filtered by a huge employee pool. The information also runs the risk of getting distorted. And the facts changing, since the interpretation of documents are solely dependent upon the understanding of the beholder. Eventually, when the information reaches the ears of the decision-makers, the entire scenario has transformed into a new one, and thus, the orders are deemed useless when acts. Eventually, this reduces the efficiency significantly and makes the entire firm lethargic. This process also passes down into the analytics of market situation, causing the firms to lose out on capitalization of massive opportunities designed for growth or increased profits.
In multiple instances, the board of directors decides to please shareholders rather than induce growth and propagate greater financial solvency. This system is usually a game plan designed to advertise the company shares and increase them in The Share Market, which is not a sustainable and feasible growth method. The scenarios transform upon each ticking second, and thereby, the sudden influx of money might seem profitable in the short run. Still, in the long run, it diminishes the firm’s reputation if such a benchmark performance is not continued, making a possibility of financial loss.
These are the most common mistakes that occur during business conduction and lead to the downfall of many great entrepreneur organizations. If such regular mistakes are rectified, a firm can provide great quality products without reducing the profit margins, an utopia in this faction of the corporate world.
