Yes, there should be a business strategy in a changing dynamic environment because a business can't be run with capital but it needs a goal and a specific strategy to achieve the goal. But in a changing environment, you should have short term strategies to satisfy the short term goals henceforth the goals should be designed as such that it gets satisfied in a month.

So, summing up the point. Strategies are a key to business goals but in a changing environment they should be kept on a short term scale and flexible so that it could be changed immediately according to the requirements and wants.

As per my perspective, having a sound strategy is imperative for any business especially when there is a dynamic environment with different fast-paced changes. As we all know business is partly reactive and partly proactive, it also enables us to maintain a soundtrack past action and to handle future uncertainty effectively.

So as per my view, having a business strategy become more important when there is changes with a fast pace.

According to my point of view, to understand the meaning strategy is very important for any entrepreneur or any businessman because the 50 % of the whole business depends upon the basic market strategy and marketing awareness it's actually a part market strategy.

Without working on market strategy or any plans for your product or business may be you will get in trouble any you actually pay more money you have to use your intelligence you have to now who is your customer And which customer I should call. If the market change day by day you have to build hours by hours strategy for your business.

Hi Guys,

As we all know that world is transforming rapidly in front of us where there is more and more need to keep focus on the work procedure to gain something in the business life. Making strategy is a way to achieve target in the business. Without any strategy we can not expect even average positive result in our hands. We all are aware that when we talk about development of the country so we talk about the people of the nation and if people are doing well it means each one is able to do his/her best to the task so business is nothing but part of the nation where there is more & more need of making proper strategy so that each one can handle the situation well.

Let me explain a true story of my friend's family so that I can give you better display of importance of the strategy in our work place. Actually that family was quite poor just two years ago but now that family is a rich family and when I saw so I was extremely happy seeing that and now they are rich not only with the money but also their behavior I tried to ask the hidden formula and they told me that we have changed our planing to achieve the things that's why now we are changed in the society.

So with the help of strategy we use to modify ourselves to gain more and more benefits.

According to me, of course, business strategy is required for any kind of business to work smoothly. Business houses need to change its strategy as and when required. Without a strategy, there will be no discipline of work, which will lead to the messy environment which will ultimately affect the profits of the business. Without a business strategy, a business will easily get knocked out by other business in competition in the market. Thank you.

Without business strategy a company would be analogous to a human body without a brain i.e it would be directionless. Yes, it is true that today the world is changing very rapidly so do our business strategy should change to acclimatize with it. And this would be possible with the use of technology such as digital marketing, big data as a service (BDaas) etc. Today many companies uses this technology to get the valuable trend, perception about the consumers, competitors etc which helps them to formulate their strategy. For example, Amazon with the use of data analytics collects data of every customer who visits the website based on past trend of that particular purchases amazon shows related products. In this way, it can be said that only constant is change.

Hello everyone,

Yes, of course. I think that a business strategy is of utmost importance as for any business to work a proper planning has to be and should be done. For example, if we consider an FMCG company then we can see that the production is done by such a company solely depends on upon the forecasted demand which is actually a virtually evaluated value and such calculations that are done are a part of the strategy of a business only.

Let me illustrate this by an example Suppose I want to be the best seller of a product in the market, this is my objective. To accomplish this objective my strategy is to give the best quality at affordable rates.

To go on a trip in vacations we start planning before 4-5 months that how is the place, where we stay, what we will see. So, for a simple trip if we plan strategies that is also tentative than to run a business how can we ignore such a crucial step of planning.

A business can be start by an idea but to make it successful we have to plan strategies step by step. But strategies in today world's should be a amalgamation of both rigidity and flexibility.

Rigid in the core working such as its completion of targets in making, maintaining the overall turnover but should be flexible in some planning changing according to the demand of the consumer, improving it sales, increasing production.

Hi Friends.

Business Strategy works at the very core of an organisation and s responsible for the propagation and expansion of a business.

Business Strategy is a result of a whole lot of research, observation, analysis, study and expert advises. It is the anchor that forewarns an organisation about the impending market situations and helps out the firm during tough times.

The very changes that occur and make the market change continuously are itself results of long term business strategies.

So however dynamic the market can get, Business Strategies will never lose their importance.

The strategies are not set up overnight. It involves expertise, study, observations analysis, Market research and so on. Everything have been studied well and then depending on the results and the expected future scenario, the strategies have set up.

Ultimately, if anything changes overnight, there are certain things that has been adopted or give up as per the situation demands. This does no means that with changing scenario one should changes the strategies. Strategies plays a role for long run.

Irrespective of Global changes, I believe that strategies always protects from any such harms. So yes, one should not suppose that the strategies are worthless which are supposed to change with each market scenario. Rather to work more hard on it so that it will protect from the same.

It is simple since we were young, we were always asked to prepare regularly and in a planned manner for our exams at school & colleges, then why not now?

Strategies, help us setting goals, knowing the outcome, we can understand where we lie, where we need to reach.

Customer attraction methods can be studied upon, working in a particular manner even for a very little time, keeps the firm, or the employees of the firm together as a team and gives them a correct direction.

As far as changing World in concerned, strategies can be revised, without hindering the final goal, methods can be changed for the same outcome.

Moreover as the catch point here is world is being changed, so the old strategy can not be applied in every function.

Business strategies are like that shield, although world is changing but strategies are important.

We have so many different scientific methods of forecasting, we can make our strategies based on that data. Strategies should also be on ethical basis so any change in government policies would not affect our strategies.

If the Nokia company continue to sell his N93 at the same price 10,000 or more, do you think anyone will buy it, not at least today when we have smartphones at such a reasonable prices.

For the above question, answer is yes. Business strategy is the only tool which you can use against the unpredictable time. As we do not know that what will happen in next 2 month, whether we will get raw material for the production of final goods or not and etc. Are threat to the business. So to avoid all such threat, we go for business strategy in which we prepare our strategy according to market condition & competitor which involve everything from planning to controlling and short term plan to long term plan. Proper business based on accurate prediction will never fail or till some extent it will cover your loss and help you to get edge over your competitor and have a stable growth over the year by keeping happy your staff, management, shareholders, investors, government and society.

A strategy is not a one time work, it needs to be updated timely to face the current changes in the market.

Business without strategy is something like body without soul, without a proper strategy it's next to impossible for an organization to succeed in this competitive world. Strategy is the path way which guides the organization towards its goal.

Now coming to the point as we know change is constant and rest all changes. This is the change which brought many innovations to this world, if we don't change our strategy with the changing world then it may land up with something unexpected.

A company's actual strategy should be partly planed and partly reactive to the changing circumstances. There should always be contingency strategy to face the uncertain challenges.

For every successful business, a good strategy and a creative mind to manipulate that strategy is needed.

That's true that the world is continuously changing and so is the market conditions and the demands. Therefore, for an organization to keep standing successfully in the market, there should be a plan that can be changed accordingly, if needed.

It is essential to have a good plan keeping the future aspects in the mind.

For this, a good vision is needed.

Without a good plan, no organization can lead to a good results.

So the conclusion is this that having a business plan is essential to an organization but the plan should be made by keeping the future market demands and aspects in the mind, only then that plan can give the good results. Also, the plan should be such that can accept the changes i.e. it should not be rigid against the changes.

First of all I would to say thanks to all my friends. It is good to appreciate that we get a such topic for discussion.

As per my opinion, a person cannot survive without suitable thought. In the same way business cannot survive and growth without proper business strategy. So we should make plan for success and growth in every situation. We should decide the strategy and make it modify as per changing the market situation. It is good to devote some time consciously every day for the survival and growth. If particular plan is fail then we should think for alternate plan instead of earlier plan which was fail. Most of the organisation they put so much effort to accomplish the business strategy even when they fail in particular plan they did not give up. Therefore we could say business is lifetime commitment and there is no question of the word 'GIVE UP' we should remove the word 'GIVE UP' from our own dictionary.

Firstly, there is a profit having a business strategy when the world changes from month to month because due to fast modernization new business strategies are also developed and only adoption of these is required to succeed in expanding business.

Secondly, profitable growth of business organisation comes only from the proper business strategy which is required to be innovated by experts.

Lastly, profit is calculated on the basis of business strategy only not on the changes made in the world from month to month so steps should be taken to control and coordinate the efforts of experts by employing employees under the experts.

Starting of a business and making profit from it, has huge difference. TO start a business it needs only a capital, but after that to run it it demands.

1. Visionary mind.
2. Creativeness.
3. Quick decision making ability.
4. Proper plannings or strategies.

Business is like a chess game, it requires that every step which going to be taken, has to be reasonable. A wrong step (because of lack of vision) in business can ruin it. But we should keep in mind also that it is impossible to take correct decision always. To overcome that mistake it needs another strategy.

Let's take an example of Sir Jamsetji Tata. He started business with a cotton mill and capital of 21,000/- only. Now none of us is unfamiliar with TATA Group. So was world static ? The answer is simple. All of those stuff which they have, are result of proper strategy of Sir Jamsetji Tata and his descendant.

So the conclusion from my viewpoint is that business without strategy is an attempt of suicide.

I think, any business would not succeed in this turbulent market without a robust business plan.

A business plan is important:

1) It is true that market conditions, economic scenario change rapidly, but the motive of a business plan is to read those trends and prepare itself according to the best of its efforts.

2) prepare for any unanticipated contingencies.

3) To decide its target market by way of STP (Segmenting, Targeting and Positioning) strategies.

4) to allocate a company's resources in order to derive the maximum benefit from them.

5) to come up with ways of maximizing profits under changing circumstances.

Thus it would not be wrong to say that a business strategy is a company's modi operandi shaping its fundamentals and defining its key targets, along with enabling it to survive even in the most hostile business environment.

A business strategy is like a blind person's stick which acts as a guide to him.

Strategies need to dynamic, as per the needs of market and business. Also, the strategies once laid down can be used in different business scenarios as well. What we need to do is define their scope.

One can also expand over the current strategies. One strategy can stand as the base for another one.

Few strategies always stay for eg. Cost control, produce good quality items. There are varied type of strategies as well. For eg. Ones to adapt in times of crisis, handle risks.

Hi Everyone, In today's environment change is the only constant thing and in any business, strategy is the most essential element to achieving the end objective or goal. Planning is the foremost step in any management cycle and it is in this step that the activities and tasks for the next steps are laid out. That said, Scope management is something that one has to account for when formulating a strategy, for the scope might change. A plan has to be flexible to accommodate any change in the course of the cycle and there should ideally be reserved kept aside for that. Those are the qualities of a good plan, else if there was no change and everything was so static, so once the plan was made, any one can carry out the activities and run the company.

According to me we can't ignore the power and benefit of strategy, Is anything is achievable in absence of goal and planning? If it is achieved it can't be sustain for long run because it was a result of luck not effort. It is not a new thing that changes are happening change is real and life and everything is changing with time. We have to devise our strategy in two way approach; first one is to form a long term strategy which keeps business goal and objective in mind based on customer needs which never changes and next approach is to form a short term strategy that has to be very dynamic and flexible to align with day to day changing scenario.

And it's only possible when probe the desire of people and share of your peer competitors in the market, control the operational cost of your product, development in the product marketing and so on by every moment, is the chain for growth of any business in a long run.

That's called business strategy which is required changing in itself at every step for successful business.

Yes I agree to the point that world is changing everyday but it doesn't mean that we should not make strategies because these day to day or month to month strategies may change our short term plans but we need a direction and some guidelines which will dictate our short term plannings and thats where long term planning comes into the picture because these long term planning will be the backbone for our short term strategies and will guide them in a particular direction, And without long term planning any organization can't be successful. So we need to make strategies but at the same time we need to change them in short term according to market.

According to my point of view nothing is static in this world and the same rules are applied to the business. A strategy is needed in each and every phase of life so as in business. In this world of cutting edge competition also there can be strategies which are long lasting for eg that used by apple and facebook. Apple realized the power of applications and used as its one of its strategies and Facebook realized the power of the customer's eyeballs which are there on Facebook for 24*7 and both are gaining a lot from their respective strategies. So strategies must be applied to the business but keeping in mind the demand and needs of the society.

Hi friends, according to me there are too many strategy to grow up the business. As like we know very well that business is always depand on consumers if consumer is happy than than your business is always grown up. Than first think about how to consumer happy. Most of the businessman always think about profit than result is initially perhaps he earned profit but if he did not attention on consumer facility than his business after sometime going on loss. But if first he thought about consumer facility than thought about profit than perhaps his business initially going on not too much profit but after sometime consumers are fully satisfied than I am sure his business is always going on profit. That is universal strategy to grown up the business.

Now we want to attention the consumer than we must upgrades the market new products and his prices as suppose if your company makes a product and that product cost is least in the market and it is greatest efficient but after sometime a another company comes with lower product price and greater efficiency than you must upgrade that information and decrease your profit and increase the efficiency to maintain your market.

That is the main business planning when world are changes from month to month.

Hello everybody.

As per the topic of discussion, business strategies are a part of its formulation. So any business, irrespective of its type, has to formulate a strategy for its current and further developments. On the other hand, globalization is a part of this corporate world. It is required to enhance the present scenario of the so-called "business environment". So it can be said that, globalization or the so-called "random changes" in the corporate world is an unavoidable and a detrimental part of it. Ultimately it is the role of a business to adjust itself and its strategies accordingly. Although it is a very tough job, but that is where the challenge lies. In order to occupy a sustainable position in the long run, any business will have to accept the changing challenges, because the world will keep on changing and competition will be progressing every passing day.

Month to month changes in the world will not alter the buying behaviour and taste and fashion but slightly may decrease in consumption of product. That time management make the new strategy for attracting the customer for making good sale and profit.

For any successful business or to make huge profits strategy plays a key role. In present day scenario one can see lot of globalization which is taking place from time to time, and to sustain or cope with globalization changes strategy and pre-defined plan is necessary, for instance that is why many huge companies are following LEAN AND SIX SIGMA SOLUTIONS WHICH ARE SPECIALLY developed for smoothly running successful business by 'JAPAN '.

Strategy is a kind of business plan which is not static, but its dynamic as it is varying with time as per customer demands.

Strategy is needed to start work in particular direction. Otherwise no one who is doing business is unidirectional, but with the demand it needs to be upgraded or modified. As the main function of any business is to get profit. So mainly it should varies as per customer or market expectations.

So Strategy is needed in business but it should not be rigid.

A good business strategy should cover the various aspects that contribute to the success of the concerned business. The goals, objectives, feasilbily, constranints (time, labour, finance, tecnology) , the scope, potential, profit and the various risks involved.

Only a foolish king would have headed for a war without strategy. The world changes. Sure thing. People Change too. But not their needs.

A sytematic approach to anything will take us on the path of success. It also allows us identify any mistake or error made by us quickly.

Obviously strategy is required. Strategy itself needs to be devised in such a way that takes care of the factors that changes the nature of business. Expansion and developments in derivative markets and risk management is a brilliant example.

Change that concerns business are of two types : Risks and Uncertainities
Uncertainities cannot be quantified and it is very difficult to devise strategies to perfectly insure the uncertainities.
Risks can be quantified based on the past observations and hence can be managed by devising proper strategies.

Agreed that the world keeps on changing everyday but the needs of the changing world stay static over a period of time and businesses aren't a one day story. They say Rome was not built in a day, and so isn't an empire established in a days time. Planning behind anything we do and everything we do is equally important as is reaching the goal. Strategies, though are devised in the present and are expected to work for an unpredictable future are still essential to calculate the progress in the desired direction and if bridge the gap from the expected to the actual results in case of deviations. Strategies are like an being armored getting into the war called business. It doesn't guarantee you will survive the battle but it assures that the injuries would be less and infrequent in addition to providing you a chance to defend yourself with slight dynamic changes in the strategies for survival. Of course, plan B and if required plan C as backup is always advisable.

However, if we think of going ahead without a preplanned business strategy (or for that matter strategy or planning in anything we do), we will need to look for a similar alternative which will yield results in the long run and be flexible enough to mend with the changing world, day in and day out. Failure in finding the alternative will certainly land us (and the business) in high risk and even great losses as preplanned strategies provide an edge over others without one, and makes the roadway to success visible and achievable.

Without strategies even you can't make your basic decisions of business, competing in market is way ahead.

I agree that world is changing each day but business strategies are always made keeping this fact in mind, there are long term strategies and that is why they are called strategy. Any business can't grow if they don't know that what do they want to achieve and where do they want to go and how.

Firstly strategies are something which are never of any use until and unless they are implemented properly. Secondly in business everybody wants profit and apply various strategies for gaining it. With the changing world the ethics of business does not change. So its not about changing the strategies its about implementation seeing the situation and needs of the consumer. After all consumers are the ones who rule the base of any business activity. The strategy is simple of making profit but it is just given a different form seeing the scenario. Certain businesses need rigorous study of consumer demands, needs and satisfaction for which marketing is required. Others have sole intention of getting products sold by any means. This is where marketing strategy needs to be reformed and modified with the ultimate goal consumer satisfaction.

So there must be short strategy to hav a balance between the quality of goods and effect of changing buissness conditions.

Business strategy is one of the key factor that relates an organization to its success. A good business strategy can give a company a strong advantage over other companies. No company can progress much without setting out its long term goals and the direction in which the company wants to head.

However as the world is constantly changing, rules, laws, completion, customer demands, markets etc are constantly changing, we cannot have just fixed idea as to what our company strategy should be. Change is constant and thus changing business strategies with this progressive world becomes a must for any company.

Take a computer firm for example, It knows what product it must develop and has sets out a strategy on how to go about the development of the product. But for a long term project Project plans must be adaptable. The plan should allow adoption of latest and most efficient technology. The plan should be flexible enough to allow to adjust change in consumer demands etc.
