The Business Environment


Scanning the Business Environment

Organizations cannot operate in a vacuum. For running the business operations organizations need human capital, natural resources, finance and geographical locations. Scanning the business environment on a regular basis is also mandatory. Internal and external factors considerably influence the organizational functions such as customers, employees, business regulations, marketing and supply and demand.

External factors of a business environment are characterized as all the institutions or forcers that influence the organizations from outside and are not controlled by the organization while internal factors are the forces that operate inside the organizations and organizations have a complete control over them. Careful assessments are needed for the business to deal with these influences because their impact can be drastic for the organizations.
