December 19, 2007
What is management by exception?
msafiri - Tanzania (15000)
Management by Exception is a system where managers delegate as much responsibility and activity as possible to those below them, stepping in only when absolutely necessary. Also, managers intervene only when their employees fail to meet their performance standards.
Want to improve business communication
October 25, 2007
first i like to thank for this excellent service to school of champions.
i am senthil from india. i like to know the way to improve my buisness communication.
if you send me the tips that will be helpful to me.
senthilkumar.s - USA (14636)
Good communication is important in business. You want to be very clear, so that there is no misunderstandings. The first part of that is to listen to the other person and ask questions to find out what he or she needs to know.
You should always be well prepared before you communicate with others in business, whether in writing or in speaking. Anticipate their questions and concerns. Know your subject matter.
People in different companies and in different professions have unique expressions that they use. It is good to know these expressions, so that they feel comfortable in dealing with you.
I hope these ideas help you succeed in your business communications.

MSAFIRI - Tanzania (14337)

I am not sure what you mean by a business project. Do you mean a business plan, where you plot out the start of a business venture? Or is this some project withing day-to-day business?
Wants to improve chiropractor business
August 21, 2007
I have been self employed as a chiropractor for 17 years. I believe that I help people who come into my office and retain them the same as others in my profession, but I do not get the volume of people I need to provide for my family. I struggle to get enough new people into the office each month
I am looking to build my business
- USA (14232)
You are in a helping profession, such that you want to have your customers' health and well-being improve. But one thing that is important is that you get some feedback from your customers about how satisfied they are with your service. Give a simple survey card, asking how they rate your service and if they have any suggestions on how you could improve.
You might offer a small discount on their next visit or for a referral as an incentive for them to give you feedback. In this way, you can get a good idea of how well you are doing. Plus it shows your customers that you care.
The location of an office is an important factor in the amount of traffic. At the very least, make sure you have signs posted outside your building that will let people know there is a chiropractor available.
Besides having listing in the Yellow Pages, it is worthwhile to have a simple website that tells what you do and where you are located. Many people will search the Internet to find a nearby practitioner. There are also services that rate chiropractors and point people to their websites. Consider a website as a business card and brochure. You don't need anything too fancy, but it must get the message across that you provide a good service.
Obviously, get in the local Chamber of Commerce, if you aren't already. That can generate word-of-mouth referrals.
But the most important is that your customers are satisfied, such that they will recommend you to their friends.
I hope these ideas help. Best wishes in improving your business.
Wants money to start business
July 10, 2007
my will is to have a little sum of money to start my business.
kinda - Burkinafaso (14050)
First, you need a good idea for a business to start that seems to have enough potential that it will get others excited about it. If your idea is not that strong, then you must sell yourself as a person that can start a business that will make a profit.
You can then present your idea to possible investors or people that can loan you enough money to get started. There are government agencies that help people start businesses, but it is usually better to work with people anxious to help you succeed.
Best wishes in starting your business.

Mechanical engineer wants a virtual job
January 10, 2007
Thanks for the knowledge about strategies to succeed ina small business. I have one request.
I am a mechanical engineer by profession and i would like to get a VIRTUAL JOB. I am from Uganda in East Africa.
Any form of assistance on the above will be highly appreciated.
Wilber - Uganda (12788)
In some jobs it is possible to telecommute or to work from home, using the computer. Although it may be possible for a mechanical engineer to do something like that, typically a company would want to have the person on site and able to coordinate with others in person.
If you're highly experienced, you might be able to start up a one-person engineering company. But you really need good contacts in various companies to get contracts.
Another possibility is to contact international companies have offices in Uganda and that use mechanical engineers to see if it's possible to form an alliance with those companies for contracts outside of the country.
I hope these ideas help, and best wishes with your career.
How to become a more creative business person?
December 4, 2006
Can I ask A question?
Of How to become a more creative business person...
Edder - Philippines (12555)
Creativity takes practice. You need to observe what is going on in your business and ask yourself if there is a better way of doing it.
One good thing to do is to find other people in business that seem to be very creative. Observe what they do. But also try to get a chance to talk with them and ask them how they come up with their ideas. This can give you some tips on improving your creativity in business.
How to rectify poor decisions in a company?
November 12, 2006
A well known automobile company is facing crisis. Poor decision was the reason of this problem. If you are appointed as manager of this company than how will you chop up the problem which arose?
asmi - Pakistan (12373)
Usually poor decisions in a company are created by upper management personnel who are either careless or incompetent. Sometimes it is because they have not received the correct information.
As the new manager of the company, it is wise to find the source of the poor decisions, as well as their reasons. Quite often that can be done by having meetings with groups of employees at all levels and asking them for their input.
Then the new manager can attempt to rectify the mistakes that were made and steer the company on a new course.
Also see our lessons in Total Quality Management (TQM) for further ideas.

You can gain a competitive edge over your competitors by satisfying your customers, reducing costs, eliminating incorrect products, providing new products and services, and make it easy to reach your customers.

I want to have a degree in business
September 11, 2006
i want to have a degree in business so what can i do
wishama - Maldives (11903)
The best thing to do is to first check into colleges near your home to see what business courses or degrees they have to offer. If they do not offer anything in business, they can often refer you to a good school in your area.
I want to be rich
June 30, 2006
I want to be rich.
What should I do?
yar - Myanmar (11416)
Study the rich people in your country. Find out how that made their money. Do not consider those who inherited money from their parents or who used illegal or corrupt methods. Those people will not help you.
Some people made their money by purchasing property and either renting it or re-selling it at a profit. Others started up businesses where they provided services or products that people wanted. In either case, you need to be clever and work hard. Most rich people had to work hard to get to where they are at now. But it was worth the effort.
The rich did not spend the money they made. They invested it in their business, in stocks or in property. Rich do not spend until they have more money than they need.
The most important thing is to find something that you love to do and that you are good at doing. You gain richness in the enjoyment of the task. But also, others will come to you to use your services and put you on the road to wealth.
Again, study your rich people to learn lessons from them. I hope these ideas help in achieving your goals.
