What have you learned from the reasons for the success of companies?

Featured image Big Corp Power 3

Hello everyone
Frankly, when I read about the reasons for the success of major companies such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Apple, I learned many values ​​and lessons that a person must adhere to in order to succeed.

  • I learned to be stubborn and flexible at the same time, as Bezos said of Amazonian philosophy (we are stubborn in our vision, but flexible in the details).
  • I learned innovation and constant experimentation, as Bezos said (if you double the number of experiments you will do annually, you will double the creativity).
  • I learned to think long-term and beautiful that a successful person does not think only today, but thinks a few years ahead
    For the success of my company, my goal is not to compete with competitors, but to satisfy consumers (start with customers, then go back)
  • I learned to depend on myself and not wait for people's support and help. When you fail, they will not come to your help, but rather rejoice in getting rid of a competitor to their company

This was an opinion about what I learned about the reasons for the success of companies, and it is nice to learn from our shame in order to achieve success, but here we think: If we apply the reasons for the success of any company, our company will succeed? Or are there other reasons and secrets for the success of any company?

    .Certainly, if we apply these reasons that you put forward, the company will succeed and will have a good and famous reputation among all customers. Of course, there are other reasons for the company’s success. I will suggest some of them.
    First, the creative ideas: on which the company is based and which makes it different from the rest of the companies, attract customers and work on developing marketing in a smart way to arouse admiration.
    Secondly, the work team: as the work team is the backbone of the company, the work team must be integrated and consistent, and its goal is one, which is customer service and company development
    Thirdly, the company should keep pace with global events and what scientists demand, increase production and work on developing what workers want.
    Fourth, to keep pace with global issues is to be friendly to the environment, customers and to donate to help other causes to gain a good reputation.
    Fifthly, the methodology of education: that they have the ability to acquire information and learn to help them improve their work
    Sixth: Recruiting the Right Talent The long-term success of any company requires the right talent to build the brand..

    The aforementioned reasons, in my opinion, are main and important reasons for the success of any company, but there must be secondary reasons to help maintain this success, including planning and working within well-studied economic plans, and do not forget to pay attention to experienced and competent employees at work, focus on creativity and discrimination at work and stay away from routine, Developing sales, improving quality and keeping pace with development, building relationships with customers and consumers because they are the first supporter of the company, and then working to increase the profits that each company seeks to achieve...

    Everyone spends a good amount of time on the streets and roads and in the means of transportation. My idea is the illuminated advertisements that are placed in the streets and roads, which attract the attention of passers-by and people with their colors and remind them through pictures and banners of the rules of protection against the Corona virus.

      Marketing has now become easier and more effective than placing advertisements on the streets,Where placing ads has become a traditional thing, but now there is technology, why not place an ad on social media and get people's attention faster and it won't cost me that money!I think that if the company wants to succeed, it depends on modern marketing methods, not the traditional, expensive methods

    Well, if we apply these reasons, my company will succeed, but there are qualities that must be characterized by the owner of the company, honesty with customers, courage in competition and not being weak, creativity and innovation in order to attract customers, honesty with customers and others (I always know that every success has a secret, and this secret is known only to the successful and he is the owner of The company, and this secret distinguishes it from other companies, such as a cook who can give you a recipe for the food, but it may not be the same as the delicious food of the cook because the cook has a secret to the deliciousness of his food.

      The analogy of the cook really helped me to understand what you meant! Nice creativity!

      (Other companies are like a cook who can give you a recipe for the food, but it may not be like a delicious chef food because the cook has a secret in the taste of his food)
      But also remember that customers are always looking for the distinctive flavor that suits the budget they own, and more important than this is that the brand is new and not a brand with a new flavor, So what is the point of a company producing a hand lotion and it actually worked for me and I continued with it, then another company produced a hand lotion, but I really liked that moisturizer and I don’t need to change it, so why should I take the risk and try another product? , But when that company invents a new product such as a device that cleans the skin after moisturizing here, the demand to buy the product will increase and there will be industrial integration between the major companies

    Yes, these are beautiful ways to improve my company, but there are also many reasons for the success of the company, including:
    * Advantage: The successful company must have an advantage in which companies compete in order to be able to beat them.
    Improving the quality of sales: The quality of sales must be very good in order for people to accept it
    * Not taking help (accepting it): because in the future he will mock you for this help, and this is wise “if the serpents are against me and you are against me, then I love the challenge.”
    * Early planning for the company: because if you open a company and you are not prepared for the following consequences, the company will collapse
    Put a creative idea for your company and an advantage so that it becomes one of the most famous companies in the world, but do not forget to learn from failure, and to be ahead of your competitors even by one step.

      Very insightful points into a successful company. How much importance would you give the product/service of the company and how much would you attribute to the business aspects of it?

    Well, each company must have its own formula that it imposes, its rules must be different, and its methods as well, it must be different and distinct, so that people like it, and care about it.

    Well, these reasons can drive you to success, but I think the employees’ satisfaction, motivation, and engagement are good drivers for success as the overall performance of my company is a function of my employees performance.
    another important factor to be successful is to keep challenging. Your ability to challenge and compete other rivals and competitors will give you higher motivation and more brainstorming to give the best of the best capabilities.

      These are very good characteristics in helping successful companies @exuberant_keyboard. Do you think that they could apply in all business sectors? Or are there some business sectors where, however good your company's team members, the business has just been overtaken by technology or changes of demand?

        We are living in technological revolution era, where many companies rely in technology, web- base and online software packages and sometimes robots to conduct several jobs and become more flattered companies . However, I believe that how much these technological devices are sophisticated they are not as the human brain’s sophistication.

    Well, if we implement this, will the company be successful?? Let's imagine that we have a company and we apply these rules to it, it will succeed of course, but I have to earn the trust of the customers who work for me and gain the trust of the customer. With this, my company will succeed and prosper. In my opinion, innovation and creativity are an essential factor in the establishment of the company, and it is the main factor that competes with other companies. To be creative, and his idea must be the first ray of light in the market. Save as much as possible

    I think that I learned from the reasons for success that behind every success there may be reasons or secrets, and that if we want to succeed, we must be tired and diligent.

        By secrets, I mean that there may be a secret in the success of the company. For example, a skilled cook may have a secret and in food that is different from other cooks. Also, companies have secrets that are the reason for their success.

        By corporate secrets, for example, the secret of Amazon’s success is to focus on customer satisfaction from the beginning until now on one goal, which is the customer, where Amazon provides the largest possible range of products to the customer and in all the appropriate and possible ways for him at the lowest prices, making it superior to its competitors

    And in my opinion, the most important reason for the success of anything, whether a large company or anything in the world is
    1_ (Do not compare yourself with others...!)
    On the personal level, I consider this a very important point. Why?
    Because when we do something, we have wonderful and well-thought-out plans, everything is available, alternative plans, and so on. We never need to look at others. Perhaps there are some heads of large companies comparing themselves to other companies saying (Oh my God, we are the highest position than them..! This is a grave mistake for a person. If he starts comparing others with himself, he will become his main concern, focus, and distraction only, provided that he is a higher position than others...!
    Unfortunately, this is a starting point for failure.
    So we shouldn't compare ourselves to others...!

    2_ (Combating and not giving up) For this point I will mention the Amazon company, why? Amazon is the biggest great example that we can set when mentioning not to give up, meaning that it is from a very small bookstore that sells books and video discs, it has turned into one of the largest companies in the world and now it is in more than 10 countries...!
    Therefore, we have learned from her that simplicity is a starting point for the path to success..!
    And it was not planning to be a big company whose only concern was to make people happy with books (that is, it was not seeking greed..!) and with that simplicity it turned into the largest company in the world...!

    3_ (Passion about knowledge) Entrepreneurs are distinguished by their constant passion for learning, and their relentless search for every piece of information or advice that might help them make sound decisions and manage startups...!
    This made us look at the bright side and make everything or every decision we take to study and make sure of it and have a passion for doing it and to search hard to solve the problem, meaning that (there is no impossible) or (there is always a way out..!)

      Three very important tips, independent_technology. Do you think it is also important for people who run big companies to think of how to look after their employees? If so, what would be your tips for this?

    I have some ideas to say here: First,
    To succeed in business, I must think about success. From the day I start a business, you I to think that success is possible. Nobody else will feel the same way I think about MY business. Success begins with my believing in myself, believing in my business idea.
    And second, I think every startup needs a leader with a vision. As a business leader, I must know where I am and where I am heading. I need a clear direction to move my company forward. I can’t there unless I know where I am going.
    And to keep my business moving in the right direction, I must always ask myself the following questions:

    Do I have a clear definition of the direction of my business?
    Have I created a business plan that my team and I can follow?
    What have I done today to move my business in the right direction?
    What distractions did I have to deal with today?
    What can I do to minimize distractions from the ultimate goal?
    Did I succeed in motivating my team to reach our goals?

      beloved_butterfly's comment 18 Jan 2022

      Asking yourself questions is a fantastic way to problem-solve. These are great questions for a business leader too. Which do you think is the most important? Well done!

        Katie @ Topical Talk's comment 27 Jan 2022

        In my opinion, the most important question we ask the leader is (What did I do today to move my work in the right direction?!)
        The question that companies need a clear answer to is actually this question!
        Of course, and do they want anything other than their success and the happiness of their customers? Of course not!

        From my point of view, this question can be answered with (the company's team: implementation, adoption of ideas, and the ability to deal with customers.!)
        This is the most important thing!
        A major reason for the success of his work is that the workers of the work team are creative!
        They can do things with artistry and precision!
        They can make customers happy and how to deal with them in a respectful and decent manner!
        He has a team that thinks creatively and skillfully and implements this idea also with accuracy and creativity!
        There is nothing wrong with their work, everything is considered and tested!

        They believe in the idea of ​​their success and progress and are always ready to solve any real problem!
        And, of course, there is no malice among the team members!
        And they set a specific time to open the company and at the same time, the time is suitable for customers!

        In my opinion, the most important question is (Did I succeed in motivating my team to reach our goals?) because in this project we compete and race to get the first place, did you know that thanks to my teacher because she is the one who motivates and encourages us to earn stars, when we don't get the stars, you Our teacher supports us and tells us that there is a great opportunity ahead of us, the motivating factor is very important (I will say frankly that if my teacher did not encourage me, I would have left the project a long time ago)....

        I learned these principles from my religion first and from my school second, and we were raised on these principles because they are among the basics of life. These reason are great values that we need in all aspects of life, and also having them increases the interdependence of societies, countries companies and people.

    These reasons are among the factors affecting the success and progress of companies, but there are also important reasons for this success that must be available in the founders of companies and the employees of the company, such as motivating the company’s working director to work and the worker’s love for his work and mastery of it. with the user or consumer of the products.

    This is the positive side of the goals, but there is striving and there is fatigue and determination their leader, but you have to make a good plan to follow, and you must also put it in what you can do and what your team can implement.

    When I become the president of a company, I will make my company a climate-friendly company and a company that supports the environment. I will make the employees of this company learn environmental sciences. Then one year, I will invent very good things for the environment. I think there will be success and there will be failures, but we will learn from our failures and advance with our success. We will invent them. There will be tools that pollute the environment, but we will invent devices without polluting the environment. We will also give courses for friendship with the environment and for the protection of the climate and the environment, and in particular we will give these courses to young people because I think that they are the ones who will save the environment, but they protect the climate, that is the reason for the success of all A company learning from failure and giving each environment its due and everyone who took his right and this is my opinion

Success also needs strength and self-confidence. Secondly, success requires achievement in the specified period or time, and moving from one plan to a plan and from one side to the other. Third, it must be ambitious. Ambition is The path to success and success is not limited to working in companies and saving money, but success in everything, for example, tell yourself that today I do not want to do that and you did not do it, this is called success also.
