Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The company I am investigation is McDonald's: the founder of McDonald's is Raymond Albert Kroc.

Their headquarters is in Chicago it approximately has 2,800 workers to provide a wide Varity of support function to 30,000 McDonald's restaurants in 119 countries around the globe through a network of divisional, regional and local-country offices.

Some of their fairer foods are French fries, big Mac, quarter pounder, and chicken, mcnuggets and egg muffin. The McDonald's History Raymond Albert Kroc 1902-1984, a Salesman Ray Kroc mortgaged his home and invested his entire life savings to become the exclusive distributor of a five-spindled milk shake maker called the Multimixer. Hearing about the McDonald's hamburger stand in California running eight Multimixers at a time, he packed up his car and headed west. It was 1954 and He was 52 years old. Where it all began, Des Plaines, Illinois Ray Kroc opened the Des Plaines restaurant in 1955. First day's revenues-$366.12!

Conclusion

Did it help much when you where given the chance to go to the organisation to see how the business was runned and how ICT is used My GCSE Applied In ICT class also went on a field trip to an organisation called Tate & Lyle. Tate & Lyle are one of the biggest sugar firms in the world; and use ICT extensively with their systems. They have many complicated machines that are controlled by computers. Their primary software used for controlling machinery is called SAP; and it was custom made for them by the original developers. This class visit gave me a better understand of how ICT is used in large organisations and how heavily it is relied upon. If you had the chance to do this project again what would you do different If I had to do this project again I would organise my self better and detailed my work to the max. And have more pictures to explain my work And create more what if queries and finish all the extensions. Does an organisation need ICT to successfully run day to day business You can have an organisation without ICT but the organisation would not be as successful and as organised if a company did have ICT. If you did not have ICT you would need more staff to manage the company, more storage space to store data e.g. suppliers, customers and etc. To help me with my work I used several search engines as documented in the Bibliography. I used many different types of searching techniques; such as "quoted searches"; and selective searching. Quoted searching is searching for specific quotes; as you type them in to the search box. Selective searching involves the use of +/- symbols which can include or exclude certain words form a search to minimize unnecessary results. I think I could have improved my coursework in certain areas such as the general hardware and software section; as they were not detailed enough. To improve on this I could have added some more detail to these sections. ...read more.
