Business directors' main responsibility is implementing effecting marketing strategies and business decisions. They help develop strategies to foster the growth and development of the business. Business directors work with a variety of departments to develop these strategies,such as sales, legal, and finance. They also analyze existing practices to determine what should be expanded, improved, or ended. Paying attention to their particular market and/or sector is essential in developing and monitoring business practices. Although business analysis and strategy is important, it is also imperative that the business director has excellent interpersonal skills since they work directly with many employees and consumers. These directors also often perform a supervisory role, providing guidance, delegating tasks, and disciplining staff as necessary. This is typically a full time position that takes place in an office setting. Overtime may be required depending on approaching deadlines and the needs of the business.
The standard requirements for a business director include a bachelor's degree in marketing, economics, or a related field. Relevant work history is also required. This position position requires excellent attention to detail, proficiency in multitasking, interpersonal skills, and communication skills. They should have basic computer software skills to complete such tasks as information analysis, report writing, and electronic communication with colleagues.
