what is pest analysis in introduction to business?

It is A type of situation analysis in which political-legal (government stability, spending, taxation), economic (inflation, interest rates, unemployment), socio-cultural (demographics, education, income distribution), and technological (knowledge generation, conversion of discoveries into products, rates of obsolescence) factors are examined to chart an organization's long-term plans.

read the following detail and prepare your assignment

PEST Analysis to start new business

The success of a startup business is influenced by factors operating in its internal and external environment; a business can increase its success by adopting strategies which manipulate these factors to its advantage. A successful business will not only understand existing factors but also forecast change, so that it can take advantage of change within the environments in which it operates.

The analysis that describes those environmental factors is called a PEST analysis.

PEST analysis stands for "Political, Economic, Social, and Technological analysis" and describes a framework of macro-environmental factors used in the environmental scanning component of strategic management.

The PEST factors combined with external micro-environmental factors can be classified as opportunities and threats in a SWOT analysis. In a marketing plan, therefore, a PEST analysis can be seen as a major framework of the external factors (threats and opportunities) in a SWOT analysis.

Political/legal factors describe to what degree a government intervenes in the economy. Political factors include areas such as tax policy, labor law, environmental law, trade restrictions, tariffs, discrimination law, consumer law, employment law, health and safety law and political stability. These in turn can be influenced by sociocultural factors such as the pressure of public opinion, media and pressure groups.

Economic and competitive environmental factors include macroeconomic factors such as taxation, interest rates, exchange rates, and international trading blocks. They can also include microeconomic factors such as income distribution and monopolies. As examples, interest rates will affect a business’s cost of capital and exchange rates may affect the price of imported goods.

Social environment includes cultural aspects and health consciousness, changing demographic factors such as population growth rates, the graying of the population, and the size of households. They also include changes in lifestyle and societal attitudes. Career attitudes and emphasis on safety are examples of changes in lifestyles and societal attitudes. There may also be a change in attitudes towards business ethics, animal welfare attitudes may change farming methods, health and safety will affect ingredients and production, personal ethics like bribery and unethical practices, and environmental issues affect product origins and product content.

Technological factors include ecological and environmental aspects, the fast pace of technological change, higher R & D costs and equally high budgets which can be barriers to entry. The continuing emergence of the internet is also a large technological factor. Environmental factors include weather and climate change which may especially affect industries such as tourism, farming and insurance. Increased pollution, shortages of raw materials such as oil and coal, and increased cost of energy affect most industries. Furthermore, governmental interve

   SEMESTER  SPRING   2013

I NTRODUCTION TO BUSINESS (MGT211)    

 ASSIGNMENT  NO.   01 

Requirement:

Perform a PEST analysis for AH Hot & Spicy Fast Food.

Solution:

PEST analysis (Political, Economic, Social and Technological analysis) describes a framework of macro-environmental factors used in the environmental scanning component of strategic management.

Political factors are basically to what degree the government intervenes in the economy. Specifically, political factors include areas such as tax policy, labour law, environmental law, trade restrictions, tariffs, and political stability.

Economic factors include economic growth, interest rates, exchange rates and the inflation rate. These factors have major impacts on how businesses operate and make decision

Social factors include the cultural aspects and include health consciousness, population growth rate, age distribution, career attitudes and emphasis on safety.

Technological factors include technological aspects such as R&D activity, automation, technology incentives and the rate of technological change

Environmental factors include ecological and environmental aspects such as weather, climate, and climate change, which may especially affect industries such as tourism, farming, and insurance. Furthermore, growing awareness of the potential impacts of climate change is affecting how companies operate and the products they offer, both creating new markets and diminishing or destroying existing ones.

Legal factors include discrimination law, consumer law, antitrust law, employment law, and health and safety law. These factors can affect how a company operates, its costs, and the demand for its products.The model's factors will vary in importance to a given company based on its industry and the goods it produces. For example, consumer and B2B companies tend to be more affected by the social factors, while a global defense contractor would tend to be more affected by political factors. Additionally, factors that are more likely to change in the future or more relevant to a given company will carry greater importance. For example, a company which has borrowed heavily will need to focus more on the economic factors (especially interest rates).
