    Copied from a general information page thingy:
    What does it mean for business?Imports become cheaper, making life easier for retailers, which can sell food and white goods at lower prices. Manufacturers enjoy cheaper raw materials and can retain the benefit if they sell their wares in the UK. But exported goods and services become more expensive, hitting Britain's balance of payments.

    Basically, for VGL, it is bad news, as their prices will be higher to the international buyers, making them less competitive.

    I need to add a conclusion to the end of it to get top lvl 4, but apart from that its okay.

    But i would personally use SMART alot more than i did.

    Would you have to name every objective?! would high detail for two be enough?

    I personally did two in high detail and then two in brief, just to acknowledge that they existed.

    The final paragraph should be ranking them in order of most realistic to least.

    Ie.

    "The Third objective (Labour turnover) is the most realistic because... blah blah...but it depends on...blah blah
    The last objective (Support one charity..) is the least realistic because... blah blah...but it depends on...blah blah
    The other objectives are reasonably realistic, however for the -insert objective- they will need to ----- to ensure it is realistic."

    Just an example.

    I'm confused about how lewin's change model would apply to VGL's textiles diversification, as I am assuming that only 4 NEW employees will be needed to train for it and they will be paid so they shouldn't have any resistance to change. Can anyone help?

    Macroeconomics relates to unemployment, inflation, economic growth and international trade, as well as interest rates and exchange rate.
    The international spot market is subject to the forces of supply and demand. Both supply and demand are influenced by macroeconomic factors. All businesses are influenced by the economic factors.
    The exchange rate will impact VGL in terms of the materials sold on the international spot markets because changes in the exchange rate will impact the actual sterling VGL receives.
    If it helps, remember SPICED:
    Strong Pound Imports Cheaper Exports Dearer
    If the £ is strong, then VGL's exported products will be relatively more expensive in other currencies and less may be demanded.

    Hope some of that helps..just thinking og things off the top of my head!!

    Look at VGL's objectives and consider if they are SMART:
    Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Timed

    Consider how they will be able to achieve them, and pass judgement on if you think they are realistic. Give reasons for your decision.
