This lesson will discuss Michael Porter's economic theory about various forces that can affect the success of a business and the decisions that need to be made before starting a business. It will apply each particular force to small businesses to illustrate the core concepts and how small businesses can be impacted by industry competition.

The Novus project is a combination of video tutorials designed to be used in conjunction with a free business simulation software program. The Novus Business and IT Program contains 36 business and IT training videos, covering basic finance, accounting, marketing, economics, business strategy, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
