Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Business Aims and Objectives I have been asked to find aims/objectives from 10 companies. I can research it on the internet, books, phone etc. But I decided to ask the companies my self by investigating their head offices or shops.

The objectives will vary from business to business depending on age, size, types of good/service, type of ownership, etc. here are some examples of McDonalds aims and objectives, Business Aims Aims Objectives Activities McDonalds To sell high quality fast food and to provide a high standard of service * To make more profit than last year. * To have a larger market share than Burger King * To expand the company more. ...read more.

they are not to make profit but to educate young students and one of their objectives would be for students to achieve good results in the end of the year. This shows that mainly many private companies are looking for good profits. In conclusion I had enjoyed it on the day even though I had to walk into 22 shops and ask questions and only 10 companies had answers to my questions, because either there manager were not in or the staff did not know the answer to my question. I would recommend that most companies should teach their staff more about the company and more about customer service. I would also recommend for head offices to be open on Saturdays because most are closed. ---------- 10U 10/10/04 Business Studies Mrs --- C:\Documents and Settings\Sami\My Documents\Business Aims and Objectives.doc 1 ...read more.
