Book Description

22 Nov 1999 0201619083 978-0201619089 1
Organisations, Competition and the Business Environment has three distinct aims. Firstly, to develop an understanding of the context in which firms operate. Secondly, to build a stock of knowledge about the different components of the Business Environment, with particular reference to the UK and Europe. Thirdly, to investigate how firms interpret the Business Environment and their role within it, since this will affect both how they deal with changes in it, and how they go about `managing' it to achieve their strategic objectives.

Organisations, Competition and the Business Environment provides a rigorous introduction to the Business Environment from the perspective of the firm. Parts I and II of the text are designed to meet the needs of those undertaking HND and introductory undergraduate courses in Business Studies. Part III develops issues raised in the first two parts and makes the overall package suitable for MBA students as well.

Organisations, Competition and the Business Environment

Organisations, Competition and the Business Environment provides a rigorous introduction to the Business Environment from the perspective of the firm. Parts I and II of the text are designed to meet the needs of those undertaking HND and introductory undergraduate courses in Business Studies. Part III develops issues raised in the first two parts and makes the overall package suitable for MBA students as well.

The text has three distinct aims. Firstly, to develop an understanding of the context in which firms operate. Secondly, to build a stock of knowledge about the different components of the Business Environment, with particular reference to the UK and Europe. Thirdly, to investigate how firms interpret the Business Environment and their role within it, since this will affect both how they deal with changes in it, and how they go about ‘managing’ it to achieve their strategic objectives.

Features of the text-

*First book to be based on the new, (post 2000), HND/C Business Studies syllabus.
*More rigorous coverage of issues than other business environment texts allows it be used as a substitute for introductory economics courses for BA Business Studies undergraduates.
*Develops an integrated approach to this topic that enables students to analyse, rather than simply describe, elements of the Business Environment.
*Develops an integrated approach to analysing the reciprocal nature of organisations and environments, by showing how the Business Environment affects firms and how they in turn affect, or even manage, the Business Environment.
*Covers a range of different perspectives.
*Includes a number of cases, both within the body of the text and in separate boxes.
*Assignments with model answers included.
*Chapter objectives and summaries throughout.

André Clark has over 20 years experience in industry, is a former government economic adviser, and currently acts as a consultant to a number of small businesses. He is based at the University of Glamorgan Business School.

Format:Paperback
This book's covers the new HND syllabus of the same title, but I also used it very successfully last year as a substitute for level 1 Economics for business studies undergrads and for my MBA students as the background to their Strategy courses (in particular). The first two parts of the book serve well to define the business environment as a topic in its own right but covers enough economics to placate those who have (rightly) seen business environment courses as the traditional dumping ground for a bit of politics, sociology, economics and amounting to far too little of anything of substance. The book is also useful for company analysis as it covers basic ratio analysis as well as all the environmental analysis tools. The third part is mainly of interest to MBA students -going beyond the analysis to reflect on the whole purpose of it, and engage the reader in a number of debates. Thoroughly recommended in total.

I bought this via the Amazon Seller market for my daughter who is doing a business degree.
I can report that she has gained a great deal of knowledge from this book and applied it well judging by the marks she has obtained from her assignments on the subject.
In her words she finds the structure clear, easy to use and well indexed. A very useful business text book.
