Overview
In your role as controller of a division of TransGlobal Airlines, you are responsible for assessing the possible acquisition of the two identified small airlines in the Caribbean specializing in chartered flights for luxury vacations using light aircraft (60 passengers or less).
One of the important steps in this acquisition process is analyzing, understanding, and identifying all the external and internal elements that can affect the organization’s performance, and, as businesses are greatly influenced by their environment, all the situational factors that determine how day-to-day circumstances impact firms. You can assess situational factors by performing a business environment analysis. The analysis entails assessing the level of threat or opportunity these situational factors might present. These evaluations are later translated into the decision-making process. The analysis helps align strategies with the firm’s environment. You will use the PESTEL method to perform this analysis.
