Internal Environment The internal environment is shown in both Issue One and Issue Two. In Issue One, the retirement problem triggered a series of changes among members. The changes of a new General Manager, a new Deputy General Manager, a new Business Manager and several staff would definitely unstabilize the company s overall performances. The new chief s solution was to maintain the old traditions and the old operating practices, aiming at alleviating the unstabilizing factor. In Issue Two, the function of one department changed, directly caused by changes from the outside world. The change of one Export Business Department into an Import Business Department broadened the business market for the company and provided much more opportunities in later development of Henan Machinery and Electric Import and Export Corporation. External Environment Senior introduced PETS (i.e., political factors, economic factors, socio-cultural factors and technological factors) to further explain the external environment changes [1]. The political factors include government legislation, government ideology, international law, universal rights, wars, local regulations, taxation and trades union activities. The economic factors consist of competitors, suppliers, currency exchange rates, employment rates, wage rates, government economic policies, other countries economic policies, lending policies of financial institutions, and changes from public to private ownership. The socio-cultural factors are listed as demographic trends (customers and employees), lifestyle changes, skills availability, attitudes to work and employment, attitudes to minority groups, gender issues, willingness and ability to move, concern for the environment, and business ethics. And the technological factors contain information technology/the internet, new production processes, computerization of processes, and changes in transport technology [1]. In Issue Two, political factors and economic factors are presented as adjustment of tariff and the change of government exporting policies respectively. The rise of the exporting tariff belongs to the political factors and the change of government policies towards exporting trade market is an economic factor Haveman, Russo, and Meyer further explained the impact of regulatory change in their study. They concluded that many regulatory changes are large in magnitude and drive organizations to fundamentally alter their strategies, structures and activities , and although organizations affected by regulatory punctuations may act purposively, partial foresight and imprecise prediction of their impact generate substantial unintended consequences [8]. Thus, organizations should be careful with regulatory changes and make wise choices. A model of punctuated evolution was recommended in understanding large-scale regulatory change [8].

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
