  1. Hey guys! I'm in Business sl and I am doubting a little about what my RQ should be. I want to do my IA about motivation, possibly centered on my mother's business (it's a pretty big school chain, and currently in UK and Spain.) and the motivation of their teachers. I am not sure about how to center it. My main ideas: How could Company X improve the motivation of their teachers in its spanish schools? Should Company X implement Y theory (Pink's, Maslow's...) to improve teacher motivation in Spain? I'm stuck!!! Please help
  2. “How should ______ limited utilize new technology within their promotional strategies?”. So far I have decided to use a decision tree and PEST analysis, but I cannot think of any other qualitative or quantitive methods that I could use. I know that's the IB recommends that we use 3 to 4 so I was thinking of using one method from unit 4 and possibly 1 from unit 3. If I could have any recommendations It'd be greatly appreciated.
  3. Hello, fellow sufferers of IB! I'm absolutely freaked out by my upcoming business IA. I'm very nervous and my hair is going to turn grey soon. The only thing I've managed to accomplish through my 4 hours brainstorm, was to find a company of my fathers friend. It is a transport company focused on buses going from city A to city B. The only issue that company is facing is a fair number of competitors. I'm thinking of how should I formulate my research question and here are my thoughts: "Which methods can company X use to beat their competitors?""How can company X outstrip their competitors?""What would improve company X's position on the market compared to the competition?""What is not letting company X overcome their competitors?"Which question, in your opinion, is the best and/or how can I improve it and other questions? Thanks in advance, Alex.
  4. I am too worried. I have to start my IA soon. I don't know if I can choose a sole trading business for this. Because so far I have only seen examples of incorporated businesses and limited companies. So I am unsure if sole trading business is fine. I have to start doing my research soon. Guys please help or suggest something. Please!
  5. I'm about to start making my Business HL IA and has started to gather few information about a particular private company interested to invest in "green" energy power plant. A brief background of the company: 1. It will invest around USD 1M - USD 100M. 2. It can only develop one power plant as of now choosing from developing (solar panel, water, biomass, geothermal) power plant. 3. It has a dilemma in choosing the best site (Manado, Bali, Padang, Surabaya) because each site has different geographic and natural resources PLUS social issues brought by the resisting people in the community as 10 to 20 hectares of land must be used. 4. The company has a fixed buying power from the government electrical company and has no direct competitor because if it chooses to locate a certain area, then for the radii of 30km it belongs to it wholy to supply electricity. Now, the company is great. The company's current issue is about (SEE no. 2 and 3) . MY PROBLEM = MY RESEARCH QUESTION Do you think, my RQ is "acceptable" and "business like"? "What type of "green" energy power plant (solar panel/ water/ biomass/ geothermal) and where (Manado/ Bali/ Padang/ Surabaya) should X company decide to invest in if it expects to achieve the shortest return on investment with the least likely social issues in the future?" I could do pretty much analysis involving decision tree, the PEST of locating in each site, comparing the cost and revenue for developing one type of energy power plant... Thank you very much in advance.
  6. Hey guys. I am currently doing my business IA on the topic Human Resource Management. My RQ being, (1.)"should business X change into a more formal organizational structure to solve low staff morale?". The main solution that I am trying to suggest is whether this business should take on line managers for HR since the business I am analysing about is an informal one and the owner multi-manages all aspect of the the company including finance, HR and production, esp HR. In a sense, the owner of this company acts as HR recruiter, manager and supervisor and oddly, the business does not have line managers since they've only opened 2 outlets. This business is a fast-food chain restaurant and there are no line managers to supervise the restaurants. supervision is mainly through CCTV by owner ( not in-situ) and communication is mostly via telephone. I have been wondering for some time if maybe the question ought to be more of along the lines of (2.) "should company X take on line managers for HR in order to solve low staff morale?" but I reckon if I used that question the answer to this question would be pretty obvious that the business is in a dire need for managers since all businesses should have and i wont be getting any points for construction of research question. That's why I worded out the question such as in no (1.) since I take that taking on human resource managers would entail having a more formalized structure with the addition of a layer of organization personell in the hierachy( mostly management). But is my line of reason correct though? Does taking on management personell into the organization is what it takes to formalize an informal organizational structure of the company? An if not, then what does it take to do it? PLease Help. Thanks. If the above explanation is confusing you just say so and I'll try to clear it out.
  7. Hi! So I've been working on my IA for about a month already. And let's just say there's not much progress since I really don't know what I am suppose to do and the teacher aren't very helpful either. My topic is 'To what extent is the biodiesel fuel self-generate helps Chumphon Cabana Resort & Diving Center to achieve their business objective of cost reduction?' Basically, the resort I am doing research on are having this brilliant cost reduction method by producing their own bio-diesel fuel to use for their yacht and stuff. I want to look into how much they will save from this cost reduction method and how much it benefits them. But I think may be it is too shallow? Does any of you help any idea how to make the research more interesting? One more thing, I've made an appointment to interview the owner of the resort in April and I am not so ready. I've prepared some questions to ask him but I don't know if it's all I need to know. My teacher refuse to take any action and says she's too busy. Can you guys come up with any ideas or sample question of what I can ask related to my topic. I also will look into the breakeven and if it's possible for them to expand into new market by selling the fuel to local too. There's a few ideas came into my mind but I am not sure if I'm on the right path. It's like walking in the dark here. I would be so happy if any of you can help. Thank you so so so much in advance
