Environmental scanning, which involves gathering information about a business’s surroundings, analyzing that information, and determining its future impact, helps business leaders adapt their strategies to capitalize on opportunities and minimize threats. Proactive business leaders regularly scan their business environment so they can adapt strategies to remain competitive in an ever-changing market.
LAPs (Learning Activity Packages) are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about conducting an environmental scan, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. Click here for a sample of the student section. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 20 slides.
