UNDERSTANDING BUSINESS BASICS
(Course ID: SABU UBB1)
Looking back at business 10 years ago, 50 years ago, or even longer, it has not changed significantly. Technology has changed, our competition has changed, and our customers have changed. Business has not changed, but the way we do business has changed dramatically. Our customers and competition used to be across the street. Now, they can be anywhere in the world. Communication has gone from day, to hours, to minutes, or instantaneous. The need to act and react has placed greater demands on our businesses. A supervisor in today's business world must make not only the day-to-day operating decisions but is challenged by the big picture items such as: absenteeism, overtime, programs of the month, and more. Supervisors are faced with situations requiring snap decisions, armed with limited information, and unaware of the impact of these decisions.
