CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND IT’S BACKGROUND

Introduction and it’s Background

Small businesses are the engine of growth and development of any economy. It is a

driving force for the country’s progress. Small scale businesses are not only important in

economic growth but it is also a way for a family to support their financial needs. Small

scale businesses contributions of the small scale business to economic development,

owners face many challenges that have adverse effects on long-term success and

development of their establishment . Researchers wanted to know the challenges and

how these challenges develop their business and the managers business skills. It is

therefore, important to know what common factors affects their accomplishment and

growth.
In today economic situation, every business is affected by different environmental

factors which pre-empts their development. It is important for every business to interact

with its environment because it has direct relationship with their accomplishment. The

success or failure of a small scale business is primarily established by their

effectiveness of its interaction with it’s environment. Economic factors that influence the

business are the collective of nature of the country’s economic system. So therefore,

strategy is a very important aspect of making business successful. The absence of a

clear strategy, setting meaningful objectives and goals can be very different. Business

must always respond to environmental changes if they want to linger.

Theoretical and Conceptual Framework

Every business needs a strategy . A well-outlined business strategy is essential for the
success and sustainability of any business venture. Without one, business can lack

direction, efficiency and effectiveness. Sometimes taking the leap of faith to move away

from doing things the way they have always been done and implementing change is a

difficult hurdle for business owners to overcome. Gaining an analytical understanding of

where your business is positioned in the market, aids you in determining the direction in

which your business should head in order toachieve desired objectives. An effective

business strategy doesn’t just define the goals of your business, it will also outline the

reasons behind these goals and the means in which you plan to achieve them. Behind

every great business is a great business plan. Setting future goals is important in

measuring the success of your business, and it will also help you develop a sustainable

strategy for the future. But in putting up a business, struggles can’t be avoided. No one

said running your own business would be easy. If you’re a business owner every day

will bring problems – both big and small – that you’ll need to solve.
Every small business has struggles – some early on, some during growth, others just

pop up here and there. As an entrepreneur or owner of a small business you should

know that you’re not alone, there are others out there facing the same things you are

going through. While these problems are not unique to running a small business, they

are more challenging due to limited resources. And as a business owner, you have to

learned that nothing happens unless something moves. Progress is important to

growing your business, and you must take daily action in order to make progress. The

key is pacing yourself. Get a clear vision of where you want to go and then determine

what you can do daily to get you closer to your goals. When you decide to improve and

make daily progress in your business, you must adopt a personal resolve to move

forward regardless of the obstacles that may arise (and they always arise). This may

require strengthening your own mental toughness to achieve higher levels of success.

Your mentality should be to go and do, instead of to sit and think. Many businessmen
wear themselves out by over-thinking every little detail, which always leads to becoming

overwhelmed. Acting fast can eliminate stress, worry and anxiety and boost your

business and your confidence. The best way to figure something out is to take action

and make adjustments. You can always fix it on the fly. At least then you’ll be making

progress! That’s the skill you need to work on understanding and displaying good

management skills will help to position you for a successful career no matter what level

you’re starting at.
