The pre-reading material helped me by giving me an initial insight into the organisation of the business. Aims and Objectives The aims of Venetian Ices Ltd could be to, increase/make a profit, to expand, to improve the awareness of their product, to fight competition, and possibly most importantly, to survive. The objectives which will help Venetian Ices Ltd to achieve these aims will include: - To increase their market share, to increase the number of shops at which their ice cream is available, to increase the amount of ice cream that is produced. These objectives will help Venetian Ices Ltd to meet their aim to expand.

This would mean that they could not make a particular decision in complete freedom and without restriction. This can in some ways make the decision process easier by eliminating some possible decisions. Internal constraints A possible internal constraint to Venetian Ices Ltd could be that there is a lack of communication between departments. One possible affect of this could be that the production process was slowed down. Internal constraints can usually be overcome. To overcome this particular problem Venetian Ices Ltd could install a telephone line between the production room and certain manager's offices. Most of my information for this task has come from the BBC video documentary 'Ice Cream Wars', along with my existing Business Studies knowledge. The documentary has helped me by giving me an insight into the competitive ice cream market. Venetian Ices Ltd Unit 5 Ross Mckinney ...read more.
