INTRODUCTIONA business needs accurate and relevant information from internal and external sources inorder to operate profitably. Proper collection of data creates an environment where informeddecisions can be taken for the benefit of the business. In order to manage information effectively,there must be good communication systems within the organisation. Staff must possess goodverbal and written skills in order to communicate and share information. Business informationcan be used to obtain competitive advantage and promote efficiency. Organisations generateinformation internally, recording details of products manufactured, purchased and sold, and theirassociated costs (Arnold and Boggs, 2015). Businesses use information to manage not only whatis currently happening in the organisation but also to plan for the future and ensure their survival.Information is collected, stored, manipulated, analysed and reported to those who need to use it.People need to become skilled manipulators and users of information to ensure organisationsbecome more efficient and succeed in achieving their stated purposes. Since the development ofthe personal computer and more recently the internet, communication methods have changedsignificantly. Gathering relevant information from a range of sources is a skill that needs to bedeveloped using electronic and non-electronic sources. The below report is based on the businesscommunication measures ofTESCO PLCUK that is operating in the retail industrial sector ofUK.TASK 1P1.

Every business will have the ability to gather information about employees, aboutsales and about customers (Crowley and Heyer, 2015). Setting up systems and processes for
gathering the right information can help business owners track, trend, analyse and act uponbusiness that gives them clues into such issues as what drives employee satisfaction, the productsmost demanded by customers, areas of employee and customers satisfaction and dissatisfaction.Competitive InformationNo business is without competition and gathering information about competitors iscritical. Fortunately, this is easier than ever to do with the advent of the Internet (Griffin, 2013).Through search and through participation in social media--sites including Twitter, Facebook andLinkedIn--businesses can gain competitive intelligence about what others are doing.M1.
