It was establishedin the year 1869 by John James Sainsbury who firstly starts with a shop in Drury Lane, London.The present report includes different kinds of organisations along with their size, purpose andscope.

These entities pertain to usually three sectors, private, public and voluntary. Themajor focus of all of the organisations is to gain maximum satisfaction from customers in orderto retain them for a long duration of time in future prospect. When these companies operate andfunction in the desirable manner, it gives a boost to the economy of a country, thereby enhancingthe GDP of a country. In the present case, a report is to be presented in front of the shareholdersof Sainsbury's within an AGM with a view to give a detailed description of the different types oforganisations prevailing within an economy. Thus, following are the different types of businessorganisations that operate within the confines of economic system:-Public OrganisationsThese are the type of entities which are wholly managed, run and controlled by thegovernment. These organisations carry out their operations for the welfare and betterment ofgeneral public. They do not operate with an aim to earn profits(Bocken, Rana and Short, 2015).The companies functioning within the public sector offer an array of facilities inclusive of1
transportation, communication, health care, infrastructure, education etc. An excellent exampleof organisation pertaining to this sector is Crown Prosecution Service which is located in theconfines of Wales and England. It offers legal advisory services to investigation agencies as wellas police executives for the prosecution of criminals.Purpose:CPS is a primary prosecution agency which is headed under the Director of PublicProsecutions(Charter, 2017). It is engaged in the prosecution of criminals in the territory ofEngland and also render optimum legal advisory solution to investigating agencies.Legal Structure:The organisations pertaining to public sector are owned by government. Hereby,government can be of three types, which are, state, local and central. The legal structure of publicorganisations is also based upon the ownership of the entities. Following is the legal structure ofpublic sector companies:-StateGovernment:These are the entities which are owned, managed, controlled and runby the state government.Local Government:These are the organisation whose ownership and management vestsin the hands of local government.Central Government: These are the corporations which have their ownership andmanagement owing to the authorities as well as agencies of central government.Private OrganisationsThe companies pertaining to private sector are owned, managed and run by an individual,group of persons or numerous entities together as a conglomerate. These are the entities whichcarry out their business operations with an aim to earn maximum profits and attain growth aswell as development in market. The corporations belonging to private sector devise effectivestrategies and course of action in order to ensure timely accomplishment of goals and objectives.When targets are achieved in a timely manner, it inflates the values of sales as well as profits forthe respective company. A remarkable example of private entity is Sainsbury's which is a chainof supermarkets consisting of an array of products(Deasy, and et. al., 2016).
