1F,Q2-1G,Q2-1H, Q2-1I,Q2-1J,Q2-1K, Q2-1Land Q2-1L-OE. These responses were captured as
a data, which were later analyzed.
Commencing from entries Q1-1A which has got an average of 1 which is corresponding
to option “seeking a profit (i.e. a commercial business)”.hence business organization classified as
one mainly seeking to make a profit.
Under the sheet or data tab we get an average of column Q1-2A, and that is 7504.785.
The average show that 7504.785 employees the business currently employ across all sites in the
UK, excluding owners and partners meaning the option number 7 is picked or ticked since it is
250+ (or more than 250) employees and means the business is large.
Columns Q1 4 gives mean of 6.200499 this is roughly six or 6 years the firm has been
trading, this includes under all ownerships and all legal statuses. And the option number seven
(7) is the responding answer to this inquiry because the average if six and some months which
we get from decimals lies between 6-7 years.
Findings over the last 3 years
Mathematical manipulation of column Q2-1A gives the average of 1.925125 and
according to the options given, we simply round off the value of the average and get value two
and this option is “fairly significant”. Then Survival of business has been fairly significant since
business was established or over the last 3 years
The mean value of column Q2-1B gives 1.826123128 and according to the options given,
we assume that this average is close to a significant of 2 when rounded off hence developing and
growing of the business has been fairly significant concern since established or over the last 3
Working out the average of column Q2-1C we get 2.456739, this value can be rounded

“Not very significant”. Then raising finance is not very significant concern to the business since
established or over the last 3 years. Average is 1 corresponding to “yes”, the re has been other
concerns for business since established over the last 3 years

that recruiting or developing staff is not very significant concern for your business since
established or over the last 3 years

The business has sleeked information regarding Surviving 6 times, even thought survival is fairly
significant since business was established or over the last 3 years, probably there are some
constricting factors which moderately have negative influence to the business.
The business should conduct product research within the vicinity and explore products
and services that will sell. Mongering other new products and offering new services will increase
business income or annual revenue turnout will be good.
Then it’s true that recruiting or developing staff is not very significant concern the
business since established or over the last 3 years because, the existing employees are 7505 and
this is the reason the business cannot absorb more so the employment or staff development is at
stand still hence not very significant.
Starting the business has been an issue in the past 12 months. This is because of probably poor
sales and marketing blueprint or strategy and it is clear that starting another business by
venturing in developing or introducing new products, services or processes will make sensible
and profitable significance. In North West region it is urban and of town and fringe with less
sparse population .South east region is rural
The business firm should not venture or invest on new export market because it will be
irrelevant to the business goal and objective by bringing dismal income or insignificant revenue
to the business. Unless if they diversify products or services because diversification leas to
increase of sales turn over.
The business 7505 employees, that the business currently employ across all sites in the
UK, excluding owners and partners meaning the option number 7 and this is more than 250
employees and means the business is large and so the business can regulate number of
employees by applying applicable technological means to provide service and this will make
raise of finance to be very significant rather than impossibility of financial raise.
Recommendation emphasizes on sales and marketing that has been fairly significant
concern for the business for the past 12 months, Sales and marketing should rather be very
significant concern because this will make the business to have good sales turnover per day,
together with marketing will thus boost or improve daily income.
Once the income shall have been enhanced or improved by sales and marketing, then
raising finance will be a significant concern instead of being not very significant concern to the
business since established or over the last 3 years.
Strong sales and marketing blueprint of the business organization will also encourage
developing or introducing new products, services or processes to be significant because good
market plan will make the newly introduced products and services to be purchasable instead of
the new products and services being not very significant concern to the business since
established or over the last 3 years.
Sales and marketing is still a recommendation that will make business firm to enter into
new export markets and it will be more significance after putting prime and comprehensive sales
and marketing plans. It will rather not be significant at all concerning the business since
established or over the last 3 years.
The business objective is seeking for a profit (i.e. a commercial business)”.hence
business organization classified as one mainly seeking to make a profit. Then Survival of
business has to be stable or very significant instead of fairly significant since business was
established or over the last 3 years.
It recommended that there should be referrals from business staff to other persons within
the vicinity or there should always be advertisement that makes information about the business
reach a multitude, this is because according to column Q3.28 there indication that the business
remises was accessed without referral but by individuals means.
It’s recommended that the business organization within the vicinity should provide
advice as it is providing a fuller or wider review of the business to be explored this will enrich
the business firms, because advices always help to evade any shortcoming that may be
confronted with and this will enhance development in business at large.
The business organization can diversify products and services since business
diversification leads to increase in sales turnover, this is manifested in Q3-33AB also based on
Q3-33A, and this can make an ease in raise of finance in the business firm.
