Undertaking 1: ANALYSE THE JAMAICAN BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT AND THE ECONOMIC, POLITICAL, SOCIAL, LEAGAL, TECHNOLOGICAL AND COMPETITIVE ENVIRONMENTS ON BUSINESS ORGANIZATIONS
Analysis OF THE JAMAICAN BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT
Since the London Olympics, there have been a batch of negotiations of how Jamaica can really profit from the additions made in athleticss both locally and internationally. Harmonizing to ( Keith Davis ) , concern environment is a aggregation of all conditions, events and influences that surround and affects the concern.

Many of the enterprises taken by our politicians and administrative officials over the old ages have been good. The job, I believe, is that many of these enterprises have been taken within the context of the same inefficient construction that created the job in the first topographic point. So in consequence what we end up making is repairing the symptoms instead than the implicit in job.
Factors THAT IMPACT THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT
Harmonizing to Arthur M. Weiner ( T.R. Jain, 2009-2010 ) concern environment is the ultimate or set of conditions – economic, societal, political or institutional in which concern operation are conducted. All these factors are beyond the control of the concern.
The activity of a concern is shaped by the economic environment they operate in. The economic environment systematically changes with the alteration in authorities policies and alterations in political state of affairss. The Jamaican economic environment is complex in nature and is dynamic. This return into consideration unemployment rate, distribution of wealth and income, rising prices rate, trade rhythm, etc. The authorities of Jamaica has important grade of influence over the flow of income and hence over the degree and form of end product by private and public sectors, with all this said ; it creates trouble for concern to set-up in Jamaica successfully.
The concern universe is affected by political relations in a assortment of ways ; concern growing is indispensable when there is a stable and dynamic political environment. Political influences on the Jamaican environment are political stableness, political clime, budget shortage, etc.

The intent of legal environments is non merely for the proviso of enabling mechanism through which it can prosecute its aims, peculiarly the accomplishment of net incomes through entrepreneurial activity.
Harmonizing to A.V. Knight and D.J. accomplishments, information engineering has been defined as “ the convergence of calculating ” ( Ivan L. Waterman, 2005 ) . Information is therefore a critical resource in the procedure of development and in the concern environment as a whole. Technology creates both new concern chance and menaces for bing concern activity. Technology is non inexpensive at any degree, in some concern computing machines are used to make much of the work. Technology is the most dramatic force determining the fate of people all over the universe.
The rival ‘s actions are major restraint or bound on concern schemes inventions by rivals possibly hard to copy or better. The competitory environment significantly affects concern but it is beyond the control of the concern.
