PESTEL analysis of the macro-environment
There are many factors in the macro-environment that will effect the decisions of the managers of any organisation. Tax changes, new laws, trade barriers, demographic change and government policy changes are all examples of macro change. To help analyse these factors managers can categorise them using the PESTEL model. This classification distinguishes between:
• Political factors. These refer to government policy such as the degree of intervention in the economy. What goods and services does a government want to provide? To what extent does it believe in subsidising firms? What are its priorities in terms of business support? Political decisions can impact on many vital areas for business such as the education of the workforce, the health of the nation and the quality of the infrastructure of the economy such as the road and rail system.
• Economic factors. These include interest rates, taxation changes, economic growth, inflation and exchange rates. As you will see throughout the "Foundations of Economics" book economic change can have a major impact on a firm's behaviour. For example: - higher interest rates may deter investment because it costs more to borrow - a strong currency may make exporting more difficult because it may raise the price in terms of foreign currency - inflation may provoke higher wage demands from employees and raise costs - higher national income growth may boost demand for a firm's products
• Social factors. Changes in social trends can impact on the demand for a firm's products and the availability and willingness of individuals to work. In the UK, for example, the population has been ageing. This has increased the costs for firms who are committed to pension payments for their employees because their staff are living longer. It…...

Rm Assignment Final

...Elements of environmental analysis (Mellahi et al 2005) The macro level consists of factors that have huge scope of influence in many industries, namely political, economic, social, technological and legal issues (PESTL). In alternative sources we can find variations of this framework such as PESTEL, STEEPLE but the purpose is just to give more detail breakdown for comprehension (Wetherly and Otter 2008). The components at industry level are ones that impact on a firm's performance in a specific industry such as suppliers, buyers and competitors. To get the quick idea about this, the Porter's Five Forces framework should be the best illustration. Exhibit 1.2: Porter's Five Forces Framework At the firm level, the factors that decide a company's success are resources and capabilities. They include all the "tangible and intangible assets a firm uses to choose and implement its strategies" (Peng 2009, p64). When mentioning 'market environment', we should understand that this refers to the external environment. Because export activities happen across countries, the business environment in this context is broader. The environment of a 'target market' here should be perceived at three levels as well: * Macro level: the PESTL factors of a firm's home country and destination countries. * Industry level: the Five Forces factors of the specific industry that firms operate in, in cross-national context. * Firm level: what the firm......

Please note that your product must not be a chocolate or confectionery item. It is extremely important that you first consider the class research of the company, industry, competitors and PESTL before deciding on the product type and details. The product must be a consumer product (B2C) for people living here in Australia. You need to consider your potential target market including age, interests and gender. Your group’s product must also be “new” in some way to the Australian market. This can include a new-to-the-world product, a new product line, an addition to an existing product line, improvements or revisions of an existing product, a new-to-Australia product or a repositioned product.

External Factors Affecting Gnc

...Part A Perceiving through different factors and variables that could have an impact on an organization’s marketing capability, GNC would need to cursorily examine it’s marketing environment. (Evans, M 1988) highlights the rules and regulations, effects of governments, changes in technology and the implications of societal changes as the basis of marketing environment, which ultimately influence impinging on marketing. These forces fall within the macro environment of PESTL frame. As the name indicates, macro environmental factors are the forces prevailing in the external environment of the organisation. Macro environmental variables include political, economical, socio-cultural, technological, and legal forces, having bearing on the industry and business players (Popkin, B.M Duffey, K & Gordon Larsen, P 2005) Business firms and industries have no control over such factors and thus are bound to adapt and act in accordance with macro environmental forces in order to exist and sustain in the marketplace. Thus, these variables would be considered as a ramification to such a supplementary industry, which in this case is “GNC”. POLITICAL: Political factors are one of the major macro environmental force affecting multi vitamin industries and related business firms. It takes into account legislations, market regulations, government stability and trade agreements (Mashhadi, AM & Ijaz-Ur-Rehman, Q 2012). Australian government has formulated quite strict and confined set of......

...there is almost no barrier to entry, only requirements of a server, an IP address, and a website. This creates a high threat of new entrants. The bargaining power of suppliers is extremely low as the suppliers are almost entirely labor intensive. Programmers and creative, graphic design artists have some power however they are highly compensated for the work they do which will still have very little effect on total net revenue. The bargaining power of buyers is currently very low as there is no similar service as Pinterest. Also, as Pinterest continues to rapidly attract new users the possibility of a new service stealing market share away from the company reduces due to users becoming settled in with their profiles made on Pinterest. PESTL Analysis Current political and legislative factors remain largely unobtrusive to Pinterest’s company goals. Copyright infringement at one point was a concern for Pinterest, not due to the possible legal consequences, but due to the message of promoting infringement that some claimed was bolstered through the website. However, due to the genuine concern and action taken by you, Mr. Silbermann, the new anti-infringement, opt-out code changes bolsters our social standing in the online community. We must continue to innovate and develop cutting edge features that will continue to increase the ease of using Pinterest.

...2009). To illustrate, macro factors are economic conditions and technological changes whereas operating factors are unions and competitors. It is important for managers to realize and react to these factors because they can be opportunities or threats to the organisation. Managers should accept the fact that the world is rapidly changing and they have to work towards these changes as there are direct impacts on their managerial roles. External Environment Analysis External environment refers to forces and institutions outside the organisation that can potentially affect its performance (Robbins et al., 2009). A common method to scan the external environment from a business’ point of view is by using PESTL analysis. PESTL analyse the four main components in the macro environment – Political, Economic, Social and Technological. Legal factors for a financial institution like HSBC could be the Australia’s competition laws – which are designed to prohibit anti-competitive conduct in markets. Specifically for the banking industry, the Competition and Consumer Amendment Bill (No. 1) 2011 (Bill) amends the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CC Act) to further the objective of the CC Act by addressing anti-competitive price signalling and information disclosures (H.R.Rep., 2011). The legislation is related to daily operation of the business therefore the legal factor directly affects decisions made by HSBC management. Social......
