    I did questions 2 and 4, used John Lewis, Apple, Barclays, Google, RIM, Nike and Primark. Found the questions to be really open, especially 02. 04 on regulation wasn't too bad either.

    Did 02 on John Lewis' long term partnership philosophy (long term), Barclays need for change after its short term corporate objectives and Google only needing to change to meet consumer demand, RIM and their severe market share loss, made sure to comment and evaluate on the INEVITABILITY of change.

    Based the 04 question around the banks and their high risks, mergers and acquisitions (competition commission), Apple with positive CSR moving out of China (therefore no need of regulation in some cases) and a quick point on environment with Primark and Nike.

    Evaluated using the DISCO-M technique someone shared last night, thanks btw!

    Think my Analysis was pretty weak though.

    Please share your answers with mine.

    i answered questions 1 + 5.

    question 1 i talked about google, nokia, john lewis and apple. relating how similar succsesfull business's cultures are in relation to innovation and having a 'people culture' explaining why it is important for each. so my conclusion was probably different to most as i said most cultures are similar in profitable business. with exeptions such as ryan air etc etc...

    question 5 ( the one about continued growth in 20 years) i talked about ikea, tata, and rbs talking about globalisation and risk taking. although i was rushed for evaluation time here so i rushed quite a lot. but said for a business to continue growing there isnt just one factor then i explained all relevent factors.

    usually 2 for 2 is standard but examiners realised you are rushed for team. as long as the quality is there and relevent you should get the grades

    I thought question 2 was alright



    Points for culture inevitably changing:

    Poor performance (Nokia)
    Unacceptable ethical practices (Nestle) (Barclays)
    Market changing.. e.g. technological change ( Kodak)

    Points against

    Sometimes the culture doesnt need to change as they're performing really well (Google)
    Changing culture could be worse.. (Sony - changing to howard stringer)



    What do you guys think? any good? any ideas?

    I wrote a side comparing google to apple and inoccent smoothies and also referred to them a further two times in the conclusion.
    As long as you've referred to google twice or more, you're sorted
