INTEC teacher highlights that without the application of knowledge there is no generation of value
During a discussion held by the Specialty in Business Management taught by the Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo (INTEC), teacher Perla Cuevas highlighted the differences between companies, businesses and organizations
SANTO DOMINGO. - The teacher and coordinator of the Specialty in Business Management of the Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo (INTEC), Perla Cuevas, stressed that undertaking, negotiating and organizing should have as its main purpose to add value and, in any case, it must be able to generate knowledge that is used and incorporated into each job.
During the discussion "Companies, businesses or organizations: which one are you in?", Held within the framework of the Professional Meeting for Postgraduate Studies of the Specialty in Business Management, the specialist highlighted that, although the terms company, business and organization sometimes they are used interchangeably, each one has its own origin and meaning.
Cuevas pointed out that the term company comes from undertaking; business, the action of exchange and organizations, the integration of people working together with a common purpose.
In that sense, he said that you can do a one-time business, without this implying continuity; create an organization, that is, two or more people agree to achieve a common purpose; or a person (entrepreneur) start or start a business that can later turn it into an entire organization.
The specialist stressed that whether people are exchanging their talent for a certain compensation in an organization (collaborator) or delivering products or services individually to other people (entrepreneurship), the offer or proposal must add value to whoever receives it.
On how to be marketable and competitive, he pointed out that for this, people must take care of having skills that competitors lack and that make it possible to achieve superior performance in any activity.
"If we are not learning new things and acquiring knowledge, there comes a time when we will fall into obsolescence, and we will not be able to add value to anyone."
He concluded his dissertation stating that, in any case, it is important to have a clear vision and dare to fight for what you want, acting in accordance with the principles and values that govern society and understanding that, at present, knowledge that helps being successful will not necessarily be the one that will serve for future success.
The meeting was moderated by Ingrid González, Academic coordinator at the postgraduate level in the Area of Economics and Business.
