The Business of Business 

The marathon of confronting multiple business challenges all the time is wearing down enterprisers. Like navigating potholes in our streets, we're addressing only the challenges that are coming at us. In planning, the driving questions have changed from 'How long will it take?' to 'How much time do I have?'


In recent months New Game, New Rules addressed the six enterprise phases, four action managment techniques and the available opportunities to go global. Archives of past issues are available on http://www.dalebruder.com/


Be At the Table, Not On the Menu

Your enterprise is dynamic; going through phases, constantly challenged by the financial, regulatory, technological, mechanical, cultural, social and political push/pull forces that throws every effort into the global market.


Every business operates on an internal clock. Enterprisers waking up to the alarm to be smart about it are taking steps. What time is it for you?


Be a Business Person, Not Just a Business Owner

There are two sorts of business paralysis happening these days.


The first is hanging on to market share at the expense of expansion - circling the wagons. The second is sacrificing margins - hoping to make it through another day. Breaking out of both conditions happens in deepening the business model. 


The current craze of networking groups has reached it's limits in the Tucson valley mostly because we know or know of each other. Like an isolated valley, they have the formalized boundaries and morality of a closed society. What is needed is a salon mindset, a landscape of horizons - where the new west opening continues attracting talent to big sky country. Like the Renaisance, the New West culture of adventure, experiment and creativity keeps delivering. 


Being a business person is an artistic experience. The approach is creative. The experience is transformational. Everyday is an adventure, even when it's a disaster. A business person discovers who they are every moment. The enterprise adjusts to the new reality.


    Everyone is an Enterprise

The economy keeps stumbling along mostly due to the typical person is overleveraged and focused on paying down debt. Like business models, unconsciously, we've come to live pro forma lives. It's not an option to increase our debt limit.


 An Unreasonable Expectation or a Broken Promise?

I've learned in communicating with the 200 plus members of Tucson independnet Small Business Owners that businesses want the organizations they belong to do something for them that moves them forward. Their products and services are not being engaged as they thought would occur.


                       Vitalizing Your Enterprise
