  5. 5. 4. What are the Risk Factors ? After working closely in this industry, I have observed that the TOP risk factor in this business is Improfessional Management of the business. I will highlight main elements in this :- a. Execution Failure :Such a plant calls for detailed steps to get executed in time, with detailed clear-cut duties explained. If not, there is a mess of things & plant fails to get executed in time, in turn you will be left with LOSSES. b. No Proper Co-ordination :After you finalize the plant supplier failing to do a proper co-ordination with him is the major reason. Non-appointment of a Project Guy OR not maintaining schedules will result in delay in execution c. No Documentation :People go by intuition, without doing proper study on what they have to sell, what market they have, how are they going about it etc. And they do not keep any documentation about this. Then misunderstandings, and all…… d. Absence of Parallel execution system :It means , at a time you will need to carry out various cycles, absence of this will again increase project period. e. Habit of doing everything on your own :Keep in mind, you are a businessman, and a businessman delegates, does not do everything. As an entrepreneur, your job is to get people, tools. And giving the tools to the best people who are going to do that. Watch this interview with Richard Branson (, who owns over 300 companies now.
