Indeed, in each of the human mind, wit, knowledge, and finally, persistence, combined with certain material resources, resources on the basis of a plan or program of action aimed at achievement of certain pre-planned purpose. Such unity of ends and means is the company. And it defines the purpose of money, who are elected to achieve it, in other words – the industrial, institutional, technological structure of the company, its external form, which we first notice. But the choice of means may affect the goal back – history is replete with examples of how inhumane the means chosen to achieve the seemingly originally a humane purpose, and dehumanize the very purpose. The same root as the company, the word 'enterprise', which can be defined as purposeful, which is connected with well-developed ability to use all opportunities to achieve this goal.
In recent years, we finally return to a proper assessment of one of the most valuable qualities of human nature. But even long, people said when they wanted to mark the outstanding merits of any man: "His whole life – this is one company." In other words, the company – human activities, result-oriented. Typically, this is a joint – to one degree or another – human activity that does not exclude a visible leadership of some individual, but rather in need of such leadership, which is a prerequisite for the success of this activity. And speaking of the importance of leadership of one man, the controversy over the ultimate goal as time and served the cause of the failure of many well-conceived ventures. So, the company – a joint activity of people.
