    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??

    Has anyone got any sensible predictions for the Unit 2 paper? I think i'm weaker on those topics, also is the 20 marker on the unit 2 paper synoptic with unit 1?
    Breakeven probs may come up and they might ask about liquidity.

    You may scrape a C or B depending on the boundaries. I only had 10 mins for the 20 marker so didnt do too well I expect. Just aim for an A on Tuesday to secure a better grade.
