    So I just sat the June 2013 as a mock. I won't have the paper until I get back after it being marked. The best I can give you is a brief description of the case study and the questions so you can get an idea of what you should be revising..

    BUSS 3 - JUNE 2013

    Electric Dreams (Nicholson plc) June 2013
    A specialist manufacturer of taxis with a strong reputation for quality is suffering from falling sales and profits as a result of mature market and intense competition from overseas competitors. A new, young CEO (part of the founding family) looks to reposition the business by developing an electric taxi targeted at the European market. He also proposes a significant delayering of the organisational structure to encourage greater workforce empowerment, cut costs and speed-up decision-making. As part of the proposed strategy, one of the firm’s two factories would be converted to produce the electric taxi and Nicholson would also partner with a specialist supplier as part of product development.

    1. Calculation of payback period and average rate of return (8)

    ARR = 13% Payback = 3 years, 1.2 months


    2. Analysis of a proposed delayering in order to achieve greater workforce empowerment (18)
    Revise for and against removing two levels of management from a traditional hierarchy organisational structure.



    3. Analysis of location choice for factory production (18)
    Question asks you to choose between factories in two locations. One near a shipping port in the North (i.e better access to distribute to europe) and one much further away in the Midlands. The Midlands factory has lower fixed costs etc. It's much easier to justify the decision of choosing the North. You'll see when you get the paper.


    4. Evaluation of a proposed new product development and launch (36)
    i.e - For and against the business proposal - then justify your decision.
    You need to use CURRENT RATIO, ROCE and GEARING.

    Good luck guys..
