Summary

This integrated unit covers Topics 2.3 and 2.4 of the Edexcel 1BS0 Business specification content. The unit contains six thorough and engaging topics along with an assessment test that investigates and explores factors relating to making operational and financial business decisions.

The initial topics within the unit focus on issues relating to making operational decisions including an examination of the various production processes, and the impact of technology on production. The concepts of stock management and the role of procurement are covered, along with the principles of managing quality. The sales process is explored and the importance of providing good customer service analysed.

The final topics in the unit focus on the tools a business has at its disposal to support financial decision making. These topics require students to apply some basic numeracy skills in order to explore the concept, calculate and interpret gross and net profit, profit margins, and average rate of return. To consolidate learning, the use and interpretation of quantitative business data is analysed, and its use and limitations considered.
