    Yep you need 96% I think
    Correct (assuming unit 3 and 4 are both out of 100).

    You can't. To get an A* you need 320UMS or above overall with 90UMS on both A2 units. Sorry to destroy your dreams!
    Wrong. You need 180 UMS across both A2 units.

    Cheers lad! what other examples you got for contingency planning?
    BP failure to plan for oil spillage in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010 which led to loss in share prices and the 'millenium bug' costly hoax which made many firms invest in contingency planning which was not needed (can use this as a point against contingency planning)

    Do you mean the drawbacks of culture? Or what other factors contribute towards a competitive advantage?

    Barclays, their sub-culture overcame the business itself and changed the culture completely into being profit-mad which compromised their ethics but made substantial profit in the short-term but ruined their reputation long term and left them with fines of £290M, the loss of customer trust and repayments of billions ( as heard on the PPI adverts)

    For Leadership use, Vogue - Anna Wintour, RBS - Fred Goodwin, Google - Larry Page or Starbucks - Howard Shultz .. For Emerging Markets - Mothercare in India are a good example

    Maybe how a culture can completely bring down an organisation, for example a weak one like Goldman Sachs, incredibly self destructive.

    Or how an entrenched culture can stop firms from changing because they think 'the way things work around here' is good enough to last, eg Sony and Nokia. Hope this helps!

    Kodak
    South West
    Barclays
    Zappos (breifly)
    Apple (Breifly )
    Royal Mail

    With bullet point 1, i understand factors influencing the organisational culture like objectives of the business ect but i don't have a clue about culture differences ???
    Also problems with change the organisational culture 5. Could i say workers dont want to change ect. I dont have a business except barclays for it but i dont know what to say about problems. What has actually changed at barclays apart from his transform programme and extra training. They've cut cost ect and introduced training ? Could you say training is going to add to cost ?

    I think i need another business asap, please help

    HSBC, matches local culture in global branches.

    I also believe you could say any franchise has cultural differences.... not sure if that is right
