Task requirements

Overview of the assignment

Business environmental dynamics have significant impact the performance of a business, relationship with stakeholders and strategic direction. For instance, the need to analyse the impact of environmental dynamics, fluctuation and uncertainties have become more crucial than before because of Brexit, the recent Covid-19 pandemic and global recession. As Worthington, et al. (2018) argues, it is essential for business owners and leaders to constantly analyse the business environment due to its complex nature. This implies that an analysis of the business environment helps to better understand the environment an organisation operates in, the types of organisations it competes and interacts with and the dynamics of different markets. This also help organisations to deal with contemporary socioeconomic, political, and legal factors (Worthington, Britton, and Thompson, 2018). 

Consequently, this assignment provides the opportunity for students to demonstrate the ability to understand and interpret information relevant to the analysis of a firm`s internal, micro and macro business environments. The evidence of this ability will be submitted as 2000 words written as case study report.

Description of the task – what you are being asked to do.

Interpret the information provided in the case study, the UK Government tourism recovery plan, and British Airways’ annual reports by explaining how the chosen information will impact British Airways’ internal, micro, and macro environments in positive and negative ways.
