Multifaceted Process of Running a Business

A variety of operations keep businesses, especially large corporations, running efficiently and effectively. Common business operation divisions include production, marketing, finances, and human resource management.

Production includes those activities involved in conceptualizing, designing, and creating products and services. Marketing research is conducted to study consumer behaviour. Changing attitudes and modes of living directly affect the sale ability of products. Consumers today expect product innovations. Competition between manufacturers of similar products naturally accelerates the speed of changes made in those products.

Marketing concentrates primarily on the buyers, or consumers, determining their needs and desires, developing strategies to persuade them to buy. Marketing management includes planning, organizing, directing, and controlling decision making regarding product lines, pricing, promotion, and servicing. In addition, the marketing department of a business firm is responsible for the physical distribution of the products. Marketing and sales departments prepare documentation, handle cargo, do packing for clients, advise on insurance and the best means of transport, handle customs procedures.

Lesson 2. Arranging an appointment.


Finance involves the management of money, controlling capital on hand to pay their bills, seek extra capital to expand their operations.
