Research Log Book
This is my research log book where i am going to be looking at five different companies and how they operate. The five companies are McCain, Whitby Seafoods, Pindar printing company, Boston Air and Boyes. For further research i am going to choose two companies, in this case McCain and Whitby Seafoods and discuss the Theories and analytical frameworks that may be needed to undertake a comparative analysis and to support arguments presented in the analytical essay.

The key objectives are outlined clearly so I can clearly see what the business wants to achieve and what they still haven't managed. The guest speaker lecture only gave me a vague image of the company therefore I had to complete my own research using the websites in order to find out in more detail about the company which can therefore help me in my essay.| | | | |
