ou have to break down the question into its different components.

Assess the strategies that management may use to respond to influences on operations

From this you can see you have to:

1. Talk about the influences on operations with clear examples (case studies)
2. Judge the effectiveness of the strategies in their response to the influences (pick a handful from the syllabus, don't do them all as you can't cover all of them in sufficient detail)

The key is to have a direct link between each section of the essay. Start by highlighting the the influence on operations for a business and talk about the possible outcomes. E.g the effect of globalisation can lead to increased worldwide competition, in turn leading to potential decreases in market share and profits. In order to show higher order understanding i would try and integrate some sort of relevant real life business example.

You would then link this by saying how a business can adopt a strategy of introducing leading edge technology in order to produce more efficiently, accordingly allowing the firm to offer lower prices and thus increase sales/market share once again. Again, the use of real world examples is vital as it will differentiate yourself from a similar student who has studied the course on the theory aspect. Do this for each strategy you do.
