Business Leadership Advice From Vivek Ramaswamy


Both big and small scale businesses go through rough patches that seem like the end of the road. However, various principles should be applied for any business to survive—regardless of the field or industry. Pretty much anyone who knows a thing or two about running a business will agree.


It's times like this that some solid advice from a business guru like Vivek Ramaswamy comes in handy. The CEO of Riovant Sciences has undoubtedly earned the right to give business owners a nudge in the right direction. With that in mind, here are some principles and strategies he suggests entrepreneurs should apply to their respective businesses.


1. Be Meticulous

According to Ramaswamy, no business stays afloat if there's no attention to detail. Whether it's during recruitment or an audit, the same attention to detail should be applied. Ramaswamy further notes that all Riovant companies have well-qualified personnel, thanks to the methods used when vetting applicants.


It's not your traditional interview with a panel and long conversations. All applicants attend a practical examination. Likewise, it would help if you adopted the same attention to detail in your day-to-day business dealings—from product development, quality control, and even verifying pay stubs.


Speaking of pay stubs, only experience, and some good reading material can cue you in on how to spot a fake paystub. That's where platforms like Avalon Gallery come into the picture. The website offers all sorts of articles with a wide range of information for avid readers. For the most part, you'll find resources on art, family, tech, and business. Though their resources are can be viewed globally, the headquarters are in Fishtown, Philadelphia, in the United States.


2. Strengthen Team Collaboration

There's nothing anyone can achieve all by themselves. At the end of the day, there will always be gaps in knowledge. Everyone from the employees to the leaders in the Riovant family isn't just extremely qualified, but their systems are well set up for collaboration. A reliable Master Data Management system (MDM system) is one way to ensure that employees collaborate correctly and that the integrity of any shared data is maintained.


Once you find a platform that offers a reliable MDM tool, it goes a long way to streamline business processes. For one, it ensures that there's maximum visibility of corporate data and product data at all levels. It also speeds up response time and paves the way to achieving customer satisfaction. There's also the added advantage of data and workflow visualization, so businesses can stay ahead of the game while maintaining data quality.


3. Don't merely "think outside the box."

Some entrepreneurs spend so much energy thinking out of the box that they lose the entire plot. At times, you don't have to complicate issues. The perfect business solution may be right under your nose. With Vivek Ramaswamy, the idea was to give underfunded but vital experimental drugs the chance to see the light of day.


In a world where a vast number of societal needs go unmet, this is much-needed. Ramaswamy's drug company and its subsidiaries are merely filling a gap between knowledge and innovation. It's a good idea for every startup to solve existing problems upfront than to try to dream up new ones.


4. Knowledge and Versatility

Ramaswamy believes that every senior management personnel should be able to step into the shoes of their subordinates. It's the only way they'll be able to judge the quality of their work successfully. Even more, oversight is highly unlikely when you're well-versed enough to notice any irregularities. Call it what you will, but organizations expect their leaders to be knowledgeable at the end of the day.
