    • How well do you think that you have answered your research question(s)?
    can any one shed light on what does it mean by research questions? it appears that it has multi-meaning, for topic 8
    which sources of info to use
    which ratios to use
    which biz models to use
    which org to select
    and answering them is that you analysed performance of your organization by ratios. pestel swot and by comparision with rival. am i right or??? thanks

    well i will give you my example to understand it.
    My research questions were directly linked to my Models that i have used.
    1) To perform the macro-environment analysis to study UK environment.
    2) To study the overall industry forces in retail with the help of five forces
    3) To perform analytical analysis of ABC over past three years while using XYZ as benchmarking
    4) In light of above models conducts the overall SWOT
    5) Based upon SWOT advice possible recommendation.

    So what exactly i do for SLS that i explain that whether i was successful in applying all business models & Whats my personal opinion upon my performance in each objectice- you have explain how you apply plus criticise if yourself as well..

    Let me give you an example.
    In PESTEl i was able to apply with some success as original PEST model includes PESTEL, in addition to above fewer economic factors were unable to identify due lack of latest report. The political application is limited as political factors are extremely diverse. In other domain i am confident i applied it successfully.

    This include any of following
    You have used limited reference . Please note that for every main point you make you must give references. Now you may wonder the count of references used during ratio analysis. So this is overruled by mentioning in start that source of information for ratio analysis is financial statement of company. My personal references sources were 52 as cited sources and 72 as bibliography.

    Another reason for this that you forgot to reference the figures used in table. It is critical to reference in text and as well in tables. If a table using multiple sources to compile you must mention like this in end , Sources BBC, CNN, Wikipedia & Ofqual.

    Third reason you are not using standard HARVARD referencing.

    Fourth reason because of manual working in word your referencing becomes illogical, Therefore it is advised to use MS WORD internal reference manager to handle the referencing.

    well to assist you in understanding here is the excerpt from my RAP

    “The definition of retails means selling goods to customers, the size of UK retail industry in 2011 was £303b (BRC, 2011). The top four major players operating in UK retail industry are Tesco, Sainsbury, ASDA & Morrison (Guardian, 2011). In order to serve customers better normally all retailers break retail industry into smaller chunks as markets as follows: Food & Drink, Appliances, Technology, Energy, Entertainment etc. (Sainsbury, 2012) & for strategic reasons all retailers break customer markets into basic, normal & premium segments. (Sainsbury, 2011). The common methods of distribution includes Convenience stores, traditional retail stores, hypermarkets, superstores & online channel (IGD, 2010).A new distribution channel for entertainment retailing is emerging in form of digital distribution (Guardian, 2011)”

    In reference you found (Note references are just copy paste)
