Two Types of Business

laptop peopleOne – Local, the type that provides serivces and products to the local community, the money comes in and stays in that community. By doing this the local community moves the money about locally and no $$ gain is made.

Two – Global, the type that draws money into the local community by providing products and or services to the wider world. By doing this the local community benefits by having more $$ to spend.

When regional or city areas look to developing businesses it would pay to know the difference between these two and focus on those which offer the best opportunity for the tasks at hand. In an ideal world there would be a cohesive mix of both types, as the momentum builds for one, so the other would probably need to grow.

The challenge is knowing what to do to be able to build each and provide relevant training and development to boost each appropriately.

Did You ‘Value’ Your Business?

In the past set of nine articles I have outlined some ways to look at the values your business operates with. Now it’s up to you to take each and develop some guidelines around each for how you want your team to operate. May I suggest you hand the list to your top people, give them a head start, tell them to develop some ideas and options and email them to you (compile the details in a  group meeting). Then develop an organisation wide set of values, possible scenarios and situations around them.

Compile the guidelines into your master operating procedural documents, begin to live it, refer to it and explore all it has to offer.

Any future steps the organisation takes should be done in light of these core values, then over time these can be ‘tweaked’ to suit.

Now you are fired up to tackle this as a project (even you small business operator…) then here is a link you can email to your team to work with.

Adaptable

Quality

Passion

Accountability

Integrity

Collaboration

Tolerance

Respect

Leadership

And another article on values to tie it all together

 

Now look at how you bring the various aspects of this together to create great results for your business by taking positive action.

Oh and while you are at it, get your team to explore any other values they think would be useful for your business, drop me a line to let me know via the comments for this post and I will take a look and consider adding them in.
