Your task within this assignment is to undertake a PESTEL analysis for an organisation of your choice that wants to better understand the external business environment of a country of your choice. ALL components of PESTEL must be addressed.
Your submission must address the following:
By reference to academic literature and secondary data sources review the complete PESTEL as a strategic marketing tool. Then with reference to secondary data analyse and evaluate the individual components. Your data must be made relevant to the company and country. ALL components of PESTEL must be addressed. The report will end with management recommendations concerning the market attractiveness to support the organisation’s decision to enter the market of your choice.
You are required to produce a business report that demonstrates your understanding of key aspects of PESTEL analysis. The report should be of relevance to the organisation and be of interest to the Chief Executive (or equivalent).
