Summary

This unit covers the final unit of Theme 1 of the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Business specification 1BS0 and introduces students to the range of factors that are external to the business, and often outside of its immediate control.  The initial topic explores who business stakeholders are and their different objectives, which is then developed through a consideration of how stakeholders are affected by, and also impact upon business activity. Possible conflicts between stakeholder groups are then analysed, supported by application to relevant and contemporary case study examples.

Subsequent topics in the unit explore other external influences on business including technology, legislation, and the economy. Students are introduced to the impact that external factors can have on business and how businesses can respond to these influences to ensure success. The unit concludes with an assessment, testing students’ knowledge and understanding of the unit content.
