The value creation and delivery to the customer to exchange it for money are the two core and equally essential business processes of any company. The most unforgivable mistake of an owner or manager is to focus on one thing. Marketing, sales, and service are the same manageable processes as production, which sometimes requires even more attention and investment from the very beginning. The business speed directly depends on strategy, marketing, sales, and production alignment. Here are enormous opportunities for any company growth.
