Many weeks ago, an associate saw this article from Economist.com on why U.S. businesses were being destroyed faster than they’re being created. The report originated from the Brookings Institution.
There are many reasons why each business have failed. Since no one has reported on it, we decided to do a script of questions.
Our initial script begins with these five questions:
- Did they ever assess their situation before starting the business?
- Did they ever understand the number of quality competitors in their terrain?
- Did they ever compare and contrast the technical differences between them and the number of quality competitors?
- Did they ever presumed that the situation was going to be static?
- Were they ever prepared for any adjustments?
