Un altro aspetto da non sottovalutare è il contesto competitivo in cui opera il nuovo imprenditore è decisamente agguerrito e pieno di persone determinate ad emergere, la recessione economica ha modificato lo spirito imprenditoriale: prima chi faceva l’imprenditore lo faceva per scelta ora chi fa l’imprenditore lo fa per necessità. Molte idee possono essere innovative ma poche sono quelle sostenibili nel mercato di riferimento, sotto questo aspetto il neo imprenditore opera in un mercato globale nel quale molte altre persone possono aver avuto la sua stessa idea.

T&D electric manufactures high-voltage switches and other equipment for electric utilities. One line that is staffed by three workers assembles a particular type of switch. Currently the threes workers have fixed assignments; each worker fastens a specific set of components on the switch and passes it downstream on a rolling conveyor. The conveyor has capacity to allow a queue to build up in front of each worker. The bottleneck is the middle station with a rate of 11 switches per hour. The raw processing time is 15 minutes. To improve efficiency of the line, management is considering cross-training the workers and implementing some form of flexible labor system.
