Many managers, particularly those in marketing, seem obsessed with growth. Their objectives always revolve around an annual increase in sales volume, market share, or both. However, the future challenge for many managers in developed nations will be making money in markets that grow slowly. Entrepreneurs and managers in established firms need to develop knowledge about their market and industry and synthesise it into tangible plans that their organisations can act on. In organisations of all kinds, annual budgets are prepared to guide decision-making for the coming year. These decisions determine staff, investments in productive capacity, levels of operating expense, and so on.
