I have just started year 2 of my HND and have been told what we will be doing for our graded unit.

This is the guideline:
For your project you need to investigate an issue* affecting the business of your choice. The investigation chosen should be directly related to the topics, concepts and models studied in the core units of HND Business. The issue investigated must relate to the way in which the business meets the needs of its internal and/ or external customers. Companies chosen by past students range from small independent businesses through to PLC’s. It is important to bear in mind that you have to carry out primary research and you will need to have access to either employees or customers for a small survey and possibly other primary research.

Issues can be wide and varied. Just some examples:

A new technological development
A business re-structure
A new product range
New management structure
Customer Service Initiatives being introduced
A business expanding into a new market
A new marketing/ promotional campaign
A new Business strategy
etc.

It is around 7000 words

I had thought about doing it on charity shops and how advancements in technology has affected them (epos tills, contactless payments), customer Initiatives (loyalty programmes), maybe how social changes are affecting them (hard to get younger volunteers).
But not sure how to link in economics and mpo with as well.

If anyone has any ideas of anything else I could discuss in my report, especially that would link to economics and mpo, it would be greatly appreciated 😁
Just I am already panicking as I have never done anything anywhere near that length
