BTEC Business Unit 1 - In this report the two groups that I will be discussing and comparing are:- The Tussauds Group & The Metropolitan Police

Extracts from this document...


I am at present an employee for Ace publishing Ltd. My company has been writing various reports, books, leaflets and many more factual products for different consumer use for a number of years. I have been assigned the task to compare the difference between two companies and write a report. The use of this report will be for business studies students, so all the information will be justified and will be proven by evidence. In this report the two groups that I will be discussing and comparing are:- The Tussauds Group & The Metropolitan Police What Is A Business? Before we start this report we must understand and ask our selves what is a business? Ok, so why do Tesco's, Banks and Building Societies, market stalls all have the same aim and objective? Simple, because all of them have either a service or goods to offer their consumers and in return may or may not want revenue. So a business is an organization or group who are out there to provide a service or product to consumers. There are two different sectors to a business and they are the private sector and the public sector. Business that are in the private sector are usually owned by shareholders and are aiming to make profit, whereas business that are in the public sector are owned by central government or local government and usually aim to provide a service. I will start the report by introducing and discussing the aims and objectives, along with many other topics for The Tussauds Group and follow it on to The Metropolitan Police. Introduction to The Tussauds Group The Tussauds group is an international attraction, who encounter over 14millon customers a year. The Tussauds groups is a globally recognised tourist attraction venue and has venues In most busy city centers such as London, New York, Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Paris and many more. ...read more.


What attraction are declining in guest and why? Madame Tussauds need to expand their ideas further; at the moment they are Europe's No1 visitor attraction business as well as one of the world's leading leisure and entertainment companies. But they don't have venues in many of the tourist's location such as South America, Asia, etc. Opening venues in such location will be a great up beat boost for the business. As they already have a good reputation, advertising won't be as essential, as it would have been if people never knew who they were. The aim will be to create something for that people are not expecting, something mind blowing, a Madame Tussauds specialty. Other then that Madame Tussauds are doing an extremely good job of keeping people entertained through out the world. Introduction to The Metropolitan Police The metropolitan police are the largest of the police services that operate in greater London; others include the City of London Police, the British Transport Police, the Heathrow police and more. This outstanding force was founded by Sir Robert Peel in 1829. The force started off with only 1,000 police officers who monitored a seven-mile radius from Charing Cross and had control over a population of less than 2 million. Today, the Metropolitan Police Service has employed over 31,141 officers, 13,661 police staff, 414 traffic wardens and 2,106 Police Community Support Officers, and monitors an area of 620 square miles and a population of 7.2million. The Service has been policing London for over 175 years. Since the establishment in 1829. Expectations of policing for the capital have changed dramatically. The mission for the police service and the Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) is to tackle serious crime and dealing with security and counter terrorism issues. This is in addition to dealing with robbery, burglary, auto crime, traffic offences, assaults and all other crimes. Aims & Objectives The metropolitan police have many aims and objectives which they have to convene and also use these aims and objectives as guide lines to help them perform there day to day activates. ...read more.


Finally communication, the police force should have a effective communication flow, because during the 7th July 2005 bombing, the police had made an open statement that there was poor communication. This sort of issues could lead to major problems. I think they should have there own network of communication where they always have someone on standby incase anyone tries to hack in. If the above points are to be put in to consideration we would see a positive change in the police force. Comparison of Both Organisations Like every business The Tussauds Group and The Metropolitan Police are out there with a mission. They both are completely different business, in the sense where one is out there to make profit and the other one is out there to provide a service. Despite all the differentiations of the two, one thing which I have analysed and gathered from the information which I collected is that both businesses have one thing in common, and that is achieving what they set out to do. Firstly The Tussauds Group, they are always ahead of the game, looking for new venues to add to the exciting ones they already have, always looking out for competitors, making sure that the existing venues are performing to the best of its abilities, giving customers an experience of a life time and last but not least operating the business successful with all the negative criticism which is being made. The Metropolitan police are also doing what they do best. I would say the metropolitan Police have more negative criticism then any other business that's out there. They have all the different pressure groups and have to face them on a day to day basis, despite all the pressure they still manage to keep London a safe place. Even to the extent, where in recent news they are discussing to merge all the different policing forces of London into one body. 1 Performance table obtained from http://www.tussauds.com/company_information/performance.asp?css=1 2 Information obtained from http://www.met.police.uk/about/mission.htm ?? ?? ?? ??
