Definition: are resources, processes, knowledge or conditions that are crucial for the continuous prosperity and growth of a company as they trigger and support its core activities. A company has to determine its business drivers to maximize the benefits they bring to its profitability. Additionally, there are several business drivers an enterprise can’t influence because they are a part of the external environment, leaving it no choice but to adapt to the circumstances they present (such as economic conditions in a specific country, or trade regulations with other nations).
