What is a business? definition and meaning

Think about Business as a Game

“One way to think of business is as a board game. You can play the game as it exists, or you can try to change the game, either by changing the rules, changing the objective, changing who you’re playing against, or by choosing to play an entirely different game.”

– Tom Murcko

The Business Game

“You can think about business as a game. You can play the game as it exists, or you can change aspects of the game: the players, the rules, the scope, the objective, etc.”

– Tom Murcko

See Things From Their Point of View

“Allocentrism is the practice of trying to see things from others’ points of view. This is very useful in business just as it is in life. There are many possible uses: negotiation, persuasion, teamwork, sales, marketing, and just about every other aspect of business.”

– Tom Murcko

Running Multiple Businesses

“If you can run one business well, you can run any business well.”

– Richard Branson

Egos Screwing Up Businesses

“I’ve seen too many businesses run into the ground by impressive people who start to think they’re smarter than everyone else. There are enough ways to screw up in business without bringing it on yourself because of ego.”

– Barry Rosenstein
