Apply to your Business

It is very important when studying Level a 3 Business Start-up qualification, you must consider local business environment and try to apply what you are learning to relevant scenarios in your local business context. Doing this will help you to put your learning into practice and use it in your professional day-to-day activities. The nature and form of organisations varies widely. Internal factors such as ownership, business strategy, and size each play a part in defining the shape and focus of an organisation. In turn, this impacts upon the expectations and responsibilities placed on individual managers. Whilst trends in the external environment impact on organisations differently, increased globalisation and digitalisation have led to increasing competition resulting in a growing need for managers to be aware of external practices and approaches and to adopt a best fit approach.

You should take into account the following when preparing for your business start-up proposal:

• The structure, culture, size, vision, and mission of the organisation you are working for or basing your assessment
• The local culture and how it impacts on employee and stakeholder expectations of a manager
• Availability of resources
• Feasibility and suitability of practices within your specific setting
