EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT ANALYSIS 2
The External Environment
Any business is largely influenced by the environment it operates in i.e. internal or
external environments. While businesses have complete control over its internal environment
(skills and competencies), it has no direct influence over its external environment. The external
environment can be divided into the Broad and Task environments. Despite a company’s
inability to fully control both external environments, it has the ability to protect itself against
threats and take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself. Aldai Inc. is therefore placed in
a prime position to analyze its environment and come up with a strategic plan that maximizes its
unique skills and competencies thus taking advantage of opportunities and limiting threats.
The analysis of the external environment is essential as it not only helps with improving
the business strategy but it also helps fight competition. This analysis helps an organization
identify how to gain competitive advantage over its competition.
A. The Broad Environment
The broad environment is a part of the external environment that Aldali Inc. has no
influence over despite its significant influence on the company. The Broad environment can be
summarized by the PESTEL analogy i.e. Political, Economic, Social, Technological,
Environmental, and Legal factors. As a herbal cosmetics producer, Aldali Inc. has a chance to
analyze how each of these factors influence its production, service, distribution, marketing and
pricing. The PESTEL analysis should only focus on the areas that are within the sphere of
interest of Aldali Inc. for instance, the company is currently operating in the US thus its legal
parameters are only controlled by regulators such as the US FDA. It has no operations within the
financial markets thus making this economic factor irrelevant to its strategy.
