    Guys how do we structure this? Is it four paragraphs and one organisation per paragraph? So how many should we write in total?
    most people structure it like this:
    INTRO
    POINT ONE FOR (one or two examples to illustrate)
    POINT ONE AGAINST
    POINT TWO FOR
    POINT TWO AGAINST
    TAKE AIM CONCLUSION

    Four paragraphs....one example to support your point and one against

    The way i do it is i have four for points and four against (if i can think of that many) like

    Leader’s actively seek out risks and turn them into opportunities which they can exploit for profit and sustain growth because ideas are the foundation of the business, leaders should be capable of creating and managing these ideas and allocating proper resources to it. For example, under the leadership of Richard Branson virgin differentiated into many markets from their original market which was a record store and expanded into many different areas such as Banking, AIRLINES and cosmetics. This is an extremely risky strategy because it was a new product into a new market which they had no prior knowledge and understanding of, lead them to become one of the world’s most successful business with $21.3 billion revenue as of 2011. Therefore, this success can only be attributed to the characteristics of leaders’ being risk-averse and believing that the rewards outweigh the risks that ventures bring. However, will this last in the future or will entering too many markets cause them to lose out in the long term through having too much in their product portfolio. For example, Sony under the leadership of previous CEOs entered many different markets but lost sight in their primary markets causing them to lose their market leader status because all these markets such as entertainment, cameras and TVs caused communication to be restricted creating SILOS and losing out on overall competitiveness causing failing profits and sales.

    You would want to mention 3-4 factors and ideally each factor included two examples which is compared and contrasted.
    And 2-3 evaluation point and a judgement.

    First of all nothing is inevitable, that's what we've always been taught to mention in the evaluation.

    Nokia were very much a victim of their own success and their culture became very risk adverse. Culture is often embedded deeply into a business so although they're trying to change (Stephen Elop reportedly plans to cut 30,000) jobs it will be hard. However, because he is cutting so many jobs it means he's getting rid of employees who may be resisting change and therefore he will be left with less resistance? .... This obviously has to be developed, just a couple of ideas.

    If I think of anything else I'll post it
    Okay thank you! Would we need to present evidence as to how they have or haven't failed due to internal resistance to change?

    I was looking for firms that have taken advantage of the 0.5% rate of interest by taking out a big loan, but couldn't find much. Instead I've found this:
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/bu...n-8664207.html
    It suggests that firms operating within the motor industry are benefiting from the low interest rate in the UK. This is because it is cheaper for people to take out loans. There is therefore more of an incentive to spend rather than save etc etc
    Is this the kind of thing you were looking for? If so, I will try to find more examples
    thank you, yes it was many thanks!!!

    How should we structure essays?

    Intro

    Point 1 For
    Point 2 For

    Point 1 Against
    Point 2 Against

    Conclude

    (Evaluation must not be in conclusion, should be embedded throughout the case study)

    Is this right?
    yep or this way but going to be hard to think of 2 per point and make it relevant http://www.tutor2u.net/blog/index.ph...ect-paragraphs

    Absolutely ANYTHING to do with the external environment from PESTLE/Competitors
    Ohh okay, so that's the most vague question they could ask then? What points would you answer for that question? I'm thinking:

    As the value of the Pound if falling, this means UK products are cheaper and more competitive abroad which will increase trade for UK products and boost economy. It will also result in an increase in tourism which will further benefit the economy and people from the uk will start to go on domestic holidays instead etc.....

    However, due to the reduction in demand for holidays, companies such as travel agents will suffer as a result....

    What businesses could I relate to this question and what other points could I use?
