    state your point. analyse it. give an example of a business which relates to your point. explain the causes/effects for that business. evaluate your point.

    do about 3/4 of those kinda big paragraphs and your sorted.

    I think 2 for and 2 against is a bit of a small amount considering we have about 50 minutes for each essay? Wouldn't 3 for and 3 against be better?

    Tbh I'm just typing in stuff like 'Barclays corporate culture' and it comes up with a few articles on their culture and how it's changed under Antony Jenkins etc. Nothing too special, as long as you can use relevant examples in your essay then you'll be fine.

    Remember they're supposed to be really chunky and in depth paragraphs, not just a couple of lines for each point. You've got to analyse, relate it to a business you've researched and evaluate all in one paragraph, I think 2 for and 2 against is a suitable amount.

    That is true, its just that i have been looking at some answers which are scoring around 30 out of 40 and they each had 3 points for and against, but maybe not as chunky as you say. I guess AQA are more about quality rather than quantity though.

    Yeah I mean if you feel you can do 3 for and 3 against then why not but I find I'm pushed for time when I try and do more than 2 for/2 against. But like you said quality will be more important than quantity.

    2 for and 2 against is more than enough. any more and you're not analysing your points in enough detail which stops you from getting high analysis marks.
    also you should spend 10 minutes planning each essay so you only really have 40 minutes on each one, which is just about enough for a total of 6 paragraphs (including introduction and conclusion)

    This is really confusing, how you going to do for and against for the final bullet point: problems of changing organisational culture? our teacher told us to talk about three businesses that are having problems and come to a conclusion. CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW CAN I DO FOR AND AGAINST FOR THIS BULLET POINT.

    Just to add in with this whole structure thing, my teacher gave me some model answers from last years papers,

    one that wrote three points that were all really specific with like numerical data etc got 38/40,
    and one that wrote Four points with less specific numerical data scored 37/40,

    so I'd aim for four points, but ensure that all your paragraphs are specific as possible, in case you only have enough time to write three points, because it's clear that you can still access a top grade by doing this.

    In my mock, I wrote six points/companies and consequently lacked specific details and only got a B so don't do that haha!

    a strong organisational culture is one where employees believe in the corporate values, so employees need less supervision, the staff are loyal and have increased motivation, an example of this is Zappos, or Facebook or Google or Ikea, like the videos available online all show the employees to really embrace the corporate culture

    a weak organisational culture is one where employee's don't share the company's values, they're more forced to comply with them. I'm ngl I'm not really sure of an example for this, but inevitably a business that has failed because the employee's didnt embrace the business, I'll see if I can find an example and let you know

    hope that helps

    the question isnt going to be 'problems of changing a culture'

    its going to be a broader question covering probably 2 of the bullet points, so you don't necessarily need a 'f'or' argument for that bullet point.
