This is a university paper and therefore requires comprehensive study. Subject requires special focus since boundaries of this subject are not well defined.

W hy is t h i s s ub je c t i m p o r ta nt f o r e v e r y b us i ne s s m a na g e r ? The first fundamental of business is to survive. It is euphemistic way of saying that business needs to make profit. Any business not making profits is sure to sink. And in order to survive, business needs to grow constantly. Gone are the days of static business where a business could survive without substantial growth. Your neighbourhood Kiranawala is no more secure in his small shop. He is being threatened by Reliance, Subhiksha, Bharti-Walmart and the Mega Malls mushrooming like Pan shops every where. Your decades old family tailor’s business is being usurped by the mega branded apparels. Thus, to be able to survive in this globalising market, the business needs to be able to grow. In the business environment that is prevailing and forecasted to unfold over the next two decades, every business, however big or small, is threatened by the competition. Even Reliance is scared about Wal-Mart’s entry and is advancing rollout of its retail ventures. While there is always the first mover's advantage, in the end it will be business strategies which will differentiate between successful and failed business.
