The business environment includes the surroundings, both external and internal; they interact with the organizational survival and growth. Therefore, the manager must examine both environmental factors at the same time. The external environment reveals the opportunities and threats, and the internal environment deals with the strengths and weaknesses of the organization.
Businesses must know about the changes in the environment and how to overcome all these changes. Proactive organizations make a positive difference internally in an organization and avoid the negatives from these changes. Therefore, you interact with the various people and the forces present in the environment to receive inputs. In return, you provide the outputs and get feedback from your customers, and according to this feedback, you can modify your inputs for better results.
