How a Business Works: What Every Businessperson, Citizen, Consumer, and Employee Needs to Know about Business
The goal of How a Business Works is to create a framework for understanding business in 12 chapters that you can read, understand, and apply in a relatively short period of time. This framework will serve you in three ways: 1. It will help you to understand the behavior of sellers and employers, so that you can be a more informed businessperson, citizen, consumer, and employee. 2. It will help you to predict the future behavior of sellers and employers, so that you can make better plans and achieve better outcomes as a businessperson, citizen, consumer, and employee. 3. It will give you a basic understanding of business (a framework), so that you can effectively and efficiently learn more about business and organizations from the perspectives of your roles: as a citizen, consumer, employee, and possibly businessperson. All of us have the roles of a citizen and a consumer. Most of us have the role of an employee of an organization. And, some of us may choose the role of a businessperson. How a Business Works seeks to make business understandable to citizens and consumers. The book can help you in your career whether you are an employee of an organization or are self employed. And, finally, the book can assist you in becoming a businessperson.
