  • Dominant Versus Multiple Business Orientation
    Description: There has been a heated debate regarding the appropriateness of dominant and multiple business orientation models in the corporate world. Dominant orientation is where a company chooses to specialize in one area or strategy, whereas in multiple orientations, a company ventures in as many as possible business operations. Dominant business orientation offers an organisation the opportunity to focus on the most promising opportunities and give their maximum attention to it. Unfortunately, this model is less effective because, in case of changes in the environment, the business is likely to suffer more due to a lack of alternatives. Multiple business orientation is essential because the company can explore a variety of opportunities and approaches. In case of a change in one area, the company can capitalize on other fields of operation. However, some critiques claim that managing multiple operations is quite challenging. All in all, multiple business orientation seems to be more effective than a dominant business orientation. Thus, businesses should focus on various endeavors as opposed to single ventures in their operations.
