    Delayering reduces opportunities* Not increases it. Less layers would mean that there's less opportunity to become e.g a manager. Get it?

    That's true but even then delayering means more responsibility, hence it increases worker motivation.

    I talked about reducing food wastage and ethical sourcing as social trends... guess that's completely wrong? Should have spent time on the other questions...

    Well in the source it did talk about an obession over 'out of date' foods.

    For that calculation I think it was -34.1 since price had fallen.

    do you reckon i'll get away with saying that but delayering, decisions are implemented quicker and with less distortion (Chinese whispers) as the decision passes through less people, this would motivate workers because they get clearer instructions and have a better idea of what to do??

    What did you guys put for the profit maximisation question? I was talking about how it wasn't important to the business because Dan said his business objective was to reduce spending or something like that, so I said that sales maximisation was their main objective. Felt like I wrote down a load of random crap in that exam because the questions were so obscure

    Yeah and the disadvantage would be the lack of a strong clear decision-making since they would be removing the 'middle-man'.

    You should, as that is correct, decisions are implemented quicker by removing layers.

    Thought I did pretty well until I checked TSR...

    I got the income elasticity wrong, but I probably gained 2/3marks for it

    Completely missed the word "motivation" in the organisational structure question

    Struggled with the distribution channels question

    The rest was okay...
    Hopefully got atleast a C
