Question 1
All contemporary organisations operating in an uncertain economic climate, need to know how to manage change in order to survive. For businesses to withstand today’s competitive environment, they must frequently examine its processes and performance strategies to better understand what changes need to be made. Change nowadays is a reality for businesses and those which resist change, risk losing their competitive edge.
To complete this project, you are required to select an organisation that you are familiar with and the business environment in which it operates. Analyse the internal and external business environment and answer the following questions.
You are required to study the business environment of the selected organisation and develop a report document for executives on the management of the business environment and organisational change dynamics. The report should provide clear reference to the organisational context and extensive application of relevant theory. The headings and structure of the report should be guided by the following areas or sub questions that must be effectively addressed in the report:
