Making judgments on how successfully Sainsbury's are meeting objectives

Extracts from this document...


Making judgments on how successfully Sainsbury's are meeting objectives These are my judgments on how Sainsbury's are meeting different objectives. Survival: In my judgment I can easily say that Sainsbury's is meeting this objective. I can tell they are meeting this objective by looking at the profits they are making from their annual report. Looking at there annual report they are not making a loss they are making big profits. Other ways I can tell they are meeting this objective is by looking at their market share. Sainsbury's is within the top three companies in the market with a market share of around 15%. Sainsbury's is looking very stable in this market. The only possible thing that could happen to Sainsbury's, which would wipe out its existence, would be a hostile takeover. This however would take a lot of capital. I say this because Sainsbury's is a PLC, and one of the disadvantages of being a PLC is that Sainsbury's shares are being sold in the stock exchange. This could be bought by their rivals, which would then give them total authority over Sainsbury's. ...read more.


This is very important as a large and strong workforce helps keep the business moving and that the shelves would never be empty. Growth: In my judgement they are meeting this objective quite easily. This is because they are growing rapidly. Not just in the UK but overseas as well. They have started in Hungary and in Bangkok. This shows us Sainsbury's intentions. There intentions are to grow into one of the world's largest food retailers. That is why I think this objective is being met easily. If you just look at there market share which is comfortably over 15% it shows us that in a few more years they could reach up to 25%. This then means they would be a monopoly. They would have total control over the markets. We have to remember that this market is very competitive. This also shows us that they are ahead of most competitors. Growth is based on expansion and market share. First of all, we can see that they are expanding nationwide. ...read more.


I could say that they have one of the best workforces in the whole of the food retailing market. If there work force was not good enough Sainsbury's would not have more then 15% percent market share, they would not be expanding abroad if they had trouble at home at they would not be making a billion pounds plus profit. This shows us how heavily large organisations like Sainsbury's rely on there staff. That is why training is so important. If the worker were trained in the right way they would perform in the right way. Their work force is also a reflection on their training and development departments. This shows us that that department is functioning well as Sainsbury's are getting a lot of the best workers in their labour market. Having quality staff means that Sainsbury's would have a good customers service. This is because the workers would be trained to deal with customers in the right manner. My conclusion is that Sainsbury's have already achieved all of these objectives. The next step would be to keep on achieving and improving them. Looking at Sainsbury's performance so far they have a lot to keep up with and a lot of competition to become the number one food retailer. ...read more.
