I need to illustrate how the 3 sectors are all linked together. All businesses have objectives which they aim to fulfill in order for their business to run smoothly and effectively as possible. I will also be, looking at the companies aims to see if they have reached them yet, or what they are doing to reach their aim. I will be explaining areas of growth.
As a result of the research I found the following information from research on the computer, getting help from teacher and by my own knowledge.
