Investigating TWO contrasting businesses

Dear Year 12
for miost of you a Distinction is required from this 3rd and final unit from Year 12 to continue into year 13.

Can I therefore suggest that you keep up and allocate teh time that this requires this term to achieve this target and proceed.

The first assignment is broken down into several parts

Part 1 (P1) Describe the type of business, purpose and ownership of TWO contrasting businesses

We have agreed to start with Tandridge Leisure as many of you work there and its easy to get information from them. We then need to find a contrasting business and apply the list below to both as we write up our report

This should include the following:

  • the business activity, size, 
  • Sector of production
  • Business purpose
  • Sector of ownership
  • Type of ownership
  • Main implications of this ownership type
Part 2 P2 Describe the different stakeholders who influence the purpose of our TWO contrasting businesses

  • For this part we need to describe the different stakeholders who influence these TWO businesses
  • Remember to explain the difference between internal and external stakeholders
  • Make sure that you cover all relevant stakeholders including customers, employees, suppliers, owners, trade unions, suppliers, local and national communities, governments, media etc
  • Remember not just to describe the stakeholder but say how each group of stakeholders influence the purpose of the organisation.  Getting hold of financial information i.e. accounts and company reports etc will give you a good idea of who these stakeholders are specifically.
Part 3 M1 Explain the points of view of the different stakeholders seeking to influence the aims and objectives of the TWO businesses

You might notice that there is not much more to do to secure your MERIT and I've put a power point on shared to help you with this.

Part 4 D1 Evaluate the influence different stakeholders exert in one organisation.
  • Who are the most influential stakeholders?
  • Why do you believe that this is the case from the evidence that you have collected?
  • How valid is the evidence that you have used to come to this evaluation.
  • Is there enough evidence to support your evaluation?
Mr Stockley has now released the second business that you need to research.  This is Cadbury's and he has the year ending 2015 company reports saved on shared.  See how they compare to the 2009 accounts here and an overview of the business here
This link here to companies house will give you even more information if you need it about Cadbury's

Good luck and do well!

Mr T
