Business Environment
Task Business Research You are employed by the British Chambers of Commerce and you work for both the London and Coventry offices.

Your remit is to research the organisational purposes of businesses, the national environment in which they operate and behave and the global factors that shape national business activities.

One of its key purposes is to help partners, directors or senior managers of SMEs to gain a greater understanding of the topics which it covers. Your line manager has already written the contents page for the booklet and expects you to provide detailed information under each of the headings.
