Understanding Business Environment

The Business Environment

Business environment can be regarded as the total of all external and internal factors that influence a business. It is important to note that external factors and internal factors can influence each other and work together to affect a business. For instance, a health and safety regulation is an external factor that influences the internal environment of business operations. Additionally, some external factors are beyond your control. These factors are often called external constraints.

A business can be established, but to successfully sustain a business, the business needs resources like finance, for which it has to depend on financial institutions. Acceptance of social norms, for which it has to depend on society. Proper market conditions, for which it has to depend on the market. The sale of products/services, for which it has to depend on the customers. The labour, for which it has to depend on society.

Businesses do not operate in a vacuum but rather in a dynamic environment that has a direct influence on how they operate and whether they will achieve their objectives. This external business environment is composed of numerous outside organizations and forces that we can group into seven key subenvironments, such as: economic, political and legal, demographic, social, competitive, global, and technological. Each of these sectors creates a unique set of challenges and opportunities for businesses.

Business owners and managers have a great deal of control over the internal environment of business, which covers day-to-day decisions. They choose the supplies they purchase, which employees they hire, the products they sell, and where they sell those products. They use their skills and resources to create goods and services that will satisfy existing and prospective customers. However, the external environmental conditions that affect a business are generally beyond the control of management and change constantly. To compete successfully, business owners and managers must continuously study the environment and adapt their businesses accordingly.
