Business Environment Analysis
Overview
There are five major environments associated with any organization or industry – internal environment and four external environments. The external environment analysis is sometimes referred to as a PEST analysis (political-economical-social-technological analysis).
In this assignment you will need to research the industry your chose in order to identify the trends, patterns, and consistencies in the business environments for that industry.
• Trends – A series of data points that show either an upward or downward movement or a gradual movement in one direction.
• Patterns – Finding items that are recurring over and over in a cyclic fashion or if something regularly happens and a resulting reaction always occurs.
• Consistencies – Things (e.g., events or activities) that remain constant and really do not appear to change over time within the industries.
