Summary - Out now

Containing four content rich and engaging topics, this unit focuses on Topic 1.2 of the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Business specification 1BS0. The unit begins with an exploration of the primary function of business in terms of identifying, meeting, and satisfying customer needs through the provision of goods and services. The purpose and methods of conducting market research are then covered along with consideration of the role of social media in collecting market research data and the importance of the reliability of data collected. The following topic considers how market research data can be used to segment the market before then examining the use of market mapping to identify gaps in the market, and competitors’ positions within the market. The final topic in the unit explores methods of analysing the relative strengths and weaknesses of competitors and the impact of competition on business decision making.

PG online [materials have] become a vital teaching aid for us. The language used is well thought out and very little adapting is needed prior to delivery!
