Nature of modern of business DIVERSIFICATION: • Today not many corporate confine their activities to production of a single commodity. • Some business firms prefer related products to their existing production.

The business through its innovative moves can always Create synthetic wants and thus find space to produce new goods To satisfy them. 134/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
