The business environment is all about how one can derive a better methodology to connect with the business people, surrondings, and attainment of better knowledge. It has helped me to attain a better insight and to form a  business environment as per the development of business. This would be better edge control over the resources, having an equal contribution and also devising better collaborative plans, that can deliver as per the factors, forces of the business environment (Holden, 2016). It includes five elements that have helped me to make a collaborative approach as per the business environment; integrating the economic and legal environment, focus on the technological environment, and devise a better plan to focus on a competitive environment. The definition has also changed as per the macro environment that can form a better edge in terms of the institution that would be better aligned with the organization. It is also how one can derive a better understanding of the application in terms of the performance as per the organization that would be part of the external environment of business consist of the economic demographics, natural, cultural and political forces.

The course has helped me to gain a broad perspective, on how to hone one own skill and also deliver as per the company outcomes. Like every organization, it needs a robust working environment that can be better derived as per the own professional goals and also a strategy to survive. The professional goals would be helpful to deliver a better experience to the clientele in devising a better plan and also how to make a collaborative approach in terms of the economic and environmental conditions. It is also important to make an approach concerning the deliverables of the organization and also be making an approach to deliver as per the expectations defined as per the client's and customers' expectations. 

Learned outcomes as per the present and future

The course is designed which has helped me to match as per the business environment, which can help to understand as per the learning perspective in terms of understanding the course contents. It is also how one can relate with the outcomes and devising a better plan, such as how to make a plan for the strategic growth, attainment of goals and relate with the business perspective.

The course has not only provided better control over my thoughts, behavior but it has also helped in the development and the growth plans, that can be better related to the outcomes (Prajogo, 2016). As over some time, knowledge derived can become stagnant, the course has provided an edge to increase one own vision and also help gain better insights. It has broadened my horizon, and I have been able to relate to the outcomes and understand what would be the repercussion effects if a certain strategy would be applied. 

Future outcomes as per the learning experiences 

To also have better future outcomes, I have started o use my technical knowledge into the practical application and at the same time, it has helped me to routinely monitor with the goals perspectives and deliver with the outcomes. As timely devising a plan, routinely monitoring and having a controlling agenda, has helped me to provide better control, over some time, it has helped me to deliver as per the outcomes. It has helped me to gain an overview and also made an alternative approach, that could be better in controlling the devised strategy.

The formal studies have been into the technical and the knowledge derived, but with the application better, approaches and the relationship developed, it has better gained in the deliverables. It has helped me to attain professionalism and also secures a place. The course has provided me stability and relate to the outcomes. It has me more professional ina sense to deal with the clients and how to talk to them professionally and handle them tactfully (Hillary, 2017)
