Internal Issues vs External Issues

Internal issues are fully within your control. External issues are beyond your direct control. It would be a mistake to think that all business issues are either internal or external as it is common for issues to be partially within your control. For example, if a partner is delivering poor service to your customers you can try to control this by monitoring the partner and measuring their performance against your agreement with them. However, the partner's performance isn't fully within your control.
