Specific Environment


Definition: Specific Environment is the part of the external environment of an organization with which it interfaces in the course of conducting its business. Also called: Task Environment.
The institutions, stakeholders and forces belonging to this group are directly relevant to the achievement of the organizational goals because they have direct and immediate impact on the decisions and actions of its management. The specific environment of each organization is unique and changes with conditions. Typical constituents of the task environment are: customers, suppliers, competitors, and pressure groups.
Employees are not considered part of the specific environment, because they are inside the organization.
