When you start trying to make business decisions, you’ll often find that you can look to templates and models to figure out how they relate to specific types of solutions. As an individual business person, there is a particular perspective that you can take. But, if you’re trying to be a part of a larger community, there are a few different things that you have to look at.
You can find a few examples of community business model examples all around you. For example, when it comes to wastewater solutions for a community, how do businesses and residents interact with each other? Also, when a region needs Internet connectivity, there are business models that you can look to for templates. Another excellent example of the social implications of community business decisions will come with how police forces are organized. And overall, you’ll find that when it comes to business decisions, the appropriate use of shared resources is a huge factor.
On a practical level, consider business decisions when it comes to municipal wastewater. Individual people probably don’t think much about what happens when they let water drain down the sink or when they flush the toilets. Individual businesses in the community probably don’t think much about the extent of their water bills or the infrastructure that it takes to connect them to a larger community supply. But, these are very significant decisions that have to be made at an industrial and administrative level. The essential business model is that it has to work transparently.
Have you ever considered how Internet connectivity works within a community or city? A whole lot of people expect high-speed service from their cable or satellite companies, and they don’t want a lot of hassle setting it up and getting it going. Because of this, Internet service providers have to be extremely smart about pricing, hardware and software combinations, billing cycles, and a myriad of other factors.
To see how social implications can be a part of business decisions on a community level, think about how police forces are organized. Every community has certain expectations as far as law enforcement goes. Every city doesn’t have the same amount of money to spend, and every area doesn’t necessarily have the same types or degree of crime or other events where law enforcement needs to get involved. By creating a business-centered command structure around these ideas, communities can be very flexible and optimized when it comes to policing.
Shared Resources In General
Ultimately, you’ll find that business decisions that allow for community involvement and shared resources will work better than ones that try to act entirely independently. Ideally, businesses as a group will be able to function non-competitively when it creates a higher social order or financial profitability scheme.
