    Need help? My IA research question is "which two strategies can increase the sales volume of the store?" But for the introduction part, i cant write anything, the store doesnt have a name, and has only 2staffs, and down the basement in the carpark down the apartment, What can I write in the Introduction part, cause this is the IB format for SL Business Internal Assessment........:confused:

    Mmmmm. If I'm not mistaken, the introduction is just the general information of the business; when it was established, it's nature, location, blablabla. And then you also add in the stuff relevant to your question, so that you can nicely introduce the general idea of what you're going to do.

    What is the difference between a business IA and a business EE?

    Format is almost the same but you have to analyze better in EE and the concepts are more distributed. for eg., My intro was in two different sections in EE whereas, in internals it was one.....hope I didnt confuse

    So in the EE you have to talk about about a problem within the company and then give suggestions at the end?

    Just put the topics that you can use in front of you!

    For example marketing mix.........

    1) What does company X's choice of marketing mix depend on?

    For example communication........

    2) How can company X improve its communication structure?

    3) Is the communication structure adopted by company X effective?

    ...... and so on!

    GOOD LUCK

    you have to find a business thatwill let you do reserach on them, although financial information is useful its also hard to get because not manybusinesses will be willing to give it to you, i like most people did marketing because its easy and you need very little input from the partner business to get started.

    You could look at something to do with any of the businesses that are failing because of the economic downturn. Maybe something along the lines of how they will alter their marketing strategy or Human resources.

    Oh thanks a BILLION! I absolutely hate business but it wasn't my choice to take it. Thank you sooo much!
    By the way, do you know the business tools I can use for this analysis?
    What are my options?... SWOT analysis, Porter's five forces, PEST analysis, Decision trees... are those all of the business analysis tools?!?
    Thanks
