Task 1 _____________________________________________________________________ a) Describe the types of information used in your organisation, choosing one from each of the following categories: verbal, written, on-screen, multimedia, web based. _____________________________________________________________________ There are wide ranges of information used by businesses every day. It is essential for them to choose the right type of information to communicate with their stakeholders, the type of the information will vary depending on who it is referring to. I've chosen Nissan Motors Co LTD. They use verbal, written, on-screen, multimedia and web based information to communicate with their stakeholders, however which type of these information will be used will depend on the what kind of information and receiver of the information. I'm going to explain the types of the information and how it is used in my organisation. 1. Verbal information is spoken method of information and this is the best way to communicate, because you will be speaking to the other person that means there will be less complication of misunderstanding each other. For example: Nissan conducts general shareholders meeting every year to report on business plan, financial statements of their fiscal year and any other arising issues. As the number of shareholders are very large, they used to ask any questions in writing to the company after the meeting or before, but shareholders requested the opportunity to ask question during the meeting and the company agreed with their request and distributing tickets to shareholders who have a question to ask, so that way the communication got better as they can actually speak face to face with the company's CEO and get an immediate response from the company instead of waiting for a reply. 2. Written information- in business written information is used in many different ways. It is used every single day in businesses, orders to suppliers, e-mails to customers, cheques to employers, memos, reports for managers, accounting transaction etc these documents are all has to be written, some will be used as evidence, some will be used as informative purpose. ...read more.


Nissan's Scrap Scheme They extended the scheme for drivers exchanging 8-10 year old car to buy any British build range - that includes any new Nissan Micra, Nissan Note, Nissan Qashqai. That means some people managed to buy British built Nissan Micra for as little as �5,995. 4.0 CONCLUSIONS From the table above, it is clear that it has been a wake up call for the company. They recognised it quickly and came up with a solution that has worked for them perfectly. According to BBC website, they published that Nissan Motors recovered fully in three years instead of five, which is great news, however they cannot sit back and relax as the global economy is not yet fully recovered and there is a chance that foreign currency might fall and rise anytime again. Press are saying that they recovered, but according to the speech of the CEO of Nissan Motors, he's claiming that they are still in their recovery mode and continuing to watch their expenses and preparing for any event that might come up in the future.
