-> EU

-> Contingency Planning [100% revised]

->Fiscal policy [understand its goverment spending / tax , what else? any more expansion on this?]

->Social auditing [assesment of the businesses social and ethical behavior in relation to its aims. it deals with cost on society] any more points for this

->Retrenchment [No idea]

->Laize Faire approach [Goverment cutting down on tax, not helping businesses, advantages being they have more freedom?]

->Co-Operate planning [ No Idea ]

->Market Failure [Dont know this yet]

hey people, i was doing an exam paper the Vodafone one and seem to be findign it quite hard

what would you write for this question:

1) Many business leaders talk about synergies, which are the benefits that enable two merged companies to achieve more than the sum of the two separate ones. Consider why these benefits might not emerge in the case of Vodafone.

case study: http://www.aqa.org.uk/qual/gceasa/qp...W-QP-JUN05.PDF

I would look at the mark scheme first and check what the examiners are looking for in the answer ..

The word synergy means ( where the whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts) the productivity of more workers working as team is much more effective than the productivity of workers working in isolation.

The question is asking you to consider .. so you need to write the implications of synergy that results from two merging companies (both advantage and disadvantage) ( what type of integration is it) conglomerate integration or vertical takeover horizontal ..etc and finally write evaluation .. in unit 6 all the questions require evaluation.

Fiscal policy - changs in taxation (direct or indirect) or government spending to control the economy.

Direct taxes - taxes on incomes e.g. income tax on individuals, corporation tax on firm's profits.

Indirect taxes - taxes on spending e.g. VAT and excise duties (tax on cigarettes and booze )

Government macro-economic objectives
- steady increase in economic growth
- low levels of unemployment
- low inflation (official target rate 2%)
- balance on the current account

As if Primark was Jan's paper, I was predicting that for tuesday!! Awwrg. Thanks for the paper though

Hello mate !

Fasical policy is not that hard.. if you remember last year we studied the circular flow of income and how the government expenditure influence the economy activity. Fasical policy is basically the use of taxation and govt expenditure to influence the economy.

There are two types of taxation which the consumer pays direct taxation and indirect taxation.. direct taxation is basically taxes on income .. Household pays income while businesses pay corporate taxation. the indirect taxation is taxes on goods the value added tax (VAT) 17.5%.

Make sure you revise how the government influence the economy by using the budgetary policy. there are three types of budgetary policy

A Surplus budget : the govt taxation is larger than it's expenditure ..
A budget balanced : the taxation and the expenditure are balanced
A budget defciet : govt expenditure is larger than taxation

if the govt injects more money into the economy, the overal consumer spending and demand are likely to increase think of the business cycle?

if the govt injects less money into the economy, the demand is likely to decrease, business cycle?


Hope dis will help!! am not an expert this is wat i know on fasical policy!

Organisational Culture Help Anyone???

[D]
= Definition

1. BUSINESS CULTURE
- Unwritten code of how things are done within an organisation
- Influences attitudes, approach to management and decision making
- Employees must be proud of businesses set of values
- Should motivate employees to work hard
- Shaped by mission statement
Types Of Business Cultures

Power culture
[D] One or small group of power holders
- Few rules or procedures
- Comm. by personal contact
- Pleasing the boss becomes driving force of staff
Role culture

[D] Established organisations which have adopted many formal rules as they’ve grown
- Power depends on position rather than personal qualities
- Promotion follows predictable pattern
- Culture is bureaucratic, cautious and focused on avoiding mistakes
Task culture

[D] No single power source. Senior managers allocate projects to teams made up of representatives from different functional departments
- Groups disbanded after task completion
- Power lies in expertise of each individual not dependent on status or role
Person culture

[D] Developed in firms with highly skilled staff, e.g. architects or accountants. Workers are self-motivated to set own goals. Firm is dependent on these workers and empower them with high levels of autonomy

the term can also be used where a firm with a lot of profits increase it's price to exploit the consumer , in this situation the govt intervens and imposes a higher taxation notably called wind off tax to influence the firm and force the firm to reduce its price ..

the exploitation of consumer can also be seen as market failure !!
