Make sure its a topic you enjoy and really want to investigate.
Have a look or rather search on Google at other diss. in your topic area and have a read of their conclusion sections. Here you will find ideas for example where they discuss how they could improve their research and go from there.

I knew what I wanted to do before I started the degree, haha.

there must have been something that has piqued your interest and could have scope for further investigation? You don't need to reinvent the wheel here.

1.1 Try to highlight specific key words in the question so you understand what it is asking of you.
1.1.1 Plan, figure out a specific position in business and management you particularly want your dissertation to be in.

1.2 Recall upon your understanding with specific modules pertaining to that subject.
1.2.2 Use your knowledge throughout your previous years to guide the academic skills learnt to shape a position of study in planning what you will write your investigation on and how you want to approach it.

1.3 If you have taken a year in industry, you can write your dissertation in preference to the organisation you achieved work experience in.
1.3.3 Look at previous examples of dissertations, use them as a guideline. If anything, look into their grammar and associations made between them.

hope that helped.

so far my highest grades revolve around;
1. marketing and sales management
2. human resource management
3. business investigation
4. international marketing strategy

i do like the marketing topic and 2 of my highest grades both include marketing

Hahaha, didn't notice the jumps there.

1.2.2 and 1.3.3.

Sort of like the first classers graduating with their 1:1.
