Scrutiny of accounts

The Internal Organisation 

When undertaking an oversight of your internal organisation Giddens Burge will consider the critical areas of Resources, Capabilities, Core Competencies, and Competitive Advantages. Bringing a Global Mind-Set brings the ability to study a firm's internal organisation in ways that are not dependent on the assumptions of a single country, cultures or context and thereby assisting you to understand how to leverage your firm's unique bundle of resources and capabilities which is a key outcome decision makers seek when analysing the internal manifestations of an organisation.

The External Environment 

The general environment in which you do business is composed of dimensions in the broader society that influences an industry and the firms within it. An analysis of the general environment, the industry environment, your competitors in combination results in information your firms can use to understand how its external environment influences its vision, mission and strategic actions.
