During the process of gathering information, I went to library and read newspaper, other reference books, commentary statement of directors and analysis of some authors in websites. I also had discussions with my mentor Mr. Lee on the competitor for benchmarking and the area I should focus on.
In this report I covered the financial analysis by doing ratio analysis, financial position reflecting operating performance and industry comparisons for benchmarking. On the other side, I used SWOT analysis and PESTEL for analyzing business performance. By doing these, I gained in depth understanding of the organization from different aspects and research questions, although I admitted that some critical information and data were not available due to the confidentiality issues
Due to constraint in time and limitation of words, I cannot cover all business aspects that affect the success of a business e.g. social responsibility, corporate government and environmental responsibility. If it is possible, I could have prepared a balance scorecard that could improve the width and depth of my RAP.
