For this reason, we are giving you the choice to base this project on your own business, one you work in or a familiar with, or you can use the case study provided. This will mean that you are applying your knowledge and skills in a relevant, practical and meaningful way to your own situation!
It is important that you are able to access enough information for your chosen business in order to be able to do your assessment. As a minimum this should include organisational policies and procedures related to operational plans. You will also need data to review and assess operational progress in step 5.
