This is about environmental analysis which is dynamic process that comprises scanning, monitoring, disseminating and forecasting. There are different factors which influences the business in 21st century. Somehow these factors have impact on the business in favour of the business and sometimes have an adverse impact in the business. I am taking TESCO plc as a business. I will look the factors which influences the TESCO plc in different ways. TESCO is a grown company and has working in more than 14 countries with over 500,000 employees. This company is trying to grow their business in Asia. For example in relation to expand their business in Asia Singapore can be considered as possible future market. Part 1.
Widely recognised sources that impact the business in 21st century. As I have discussed earlier that there are too many factors that influence the business in different ways.
