Task Outline: This assessment task requires you to prepare a simplified report (as shown on Moodle) on the current and emerging nature of the business environment. This report be based on three (3) Portfolio of P.E.S.T. issues that you have identified as influencing shaping the business (macro) environment. The Portfolio will be your collection of three (3) articles that have been reported in reputable newspapers, business and trade publications, or similar reputable and respected publications. Journal articles must not be used as a current business environment issue for analysis. No duplications of topic are allowed, i.e., no two (2) articles on the same issue can be analysed. Nor can the one issue (e.g. COVID-19) be analysed twice. The articles in this portfolio must have been published in the mainstream news media from 1st April 2021 until 30th June 2021. WARNING: Analysis of articles NOT published between 1st April 2021 until 30th June 2021 will not be graded and will be given zero (0) for this assessment. It is your responsibility to determine whether a business news article is worthy of PE.S.T. analysis. (This is part of your learning!). To assist you in making this determination, ask yourself the following question: Is the business issue I am planning to report on significantly impacting the entire industry? If not, you may need to find another business news issue. It is also your responsibility to determine if the source of your news item (that you are analyzing) is reputable or credible. This is also part of your learning. (HINT: Research is your friend). The business news articles selected do not have to be related to each other, and therefore, should be analysed as individual (i.e. independent) issues. The news articles are part of your reference list for this assignment, along with any additional resources you cite in your analysis. The articles sources for analysis must have originally been published in English. Your report is an analysis of the macro business environment issues you have identified and how these issues, are changing the business (or industry) environment Therefore, you are analyzing the impact of the issue on the specific industry, not the company or institution affected by the issue.
