as across the globe. According to DICKINSON (2012), the objectives are set to meet them in
ethical considerations and improvise the business management. Tesco holds some basic
objectives that they are working on to meet them and achieve success. The basic examples of the
organizational development and planning can be set by evaluating its organizational behavior.
The company sets a perfect array of rules and ethics that help the employees to work in a
peaceful manner and get then maximum job satisfaction.
Tesco aims at developing a peaceful working environment for their staffs that would
encourage and motivate them to serve more for the company. Motivating the staffs
becomes an asset because the human resource is the human capital the company is
investing in the business.
Tesco targets to expand their sales of organic products and manufacturing.
ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Tesco has 6.5% share of the market in the non-food sector and thus, they aim to be
equally demanded as the food sectors.
Tesco usually carries some basic objectives that include serving the customers with best products
that are manufactured with the help of hygienic and improved technology. According to Durand
and Vergne (2012), being competitive in the market and the whole global platform is another
requirement of the company.
Literature review
Organizational change
The challenges faced by Tesco in the global market field demands a high reformation in the
marketing management body and the technological departments. The use of technology is
essential to carry on the competition and fast working strategies than other companies. Thus, the
human resource department must hire eligible and efficient management level executive who can
formulate new ideas and bring in innovation to develop the marketing condition of the company.
The products need severe attention keeping in mind the need of hygiene factors and financial
factors of the company.
There are two kinds of basic organisation that are profit making and non-profit making. The
profit making organisations are mainly the ones organising the business with some primary
goals. For-profit organisations or corporation solely aims to operate the business and earn
revenue stressing on their objectives and favours, unlike that of public. These organisations are
under private sector, and they generate their shares extending them to the general public. The
public who purchase their shares becomes the shareholders and owns shared ownership.
According to Balasubramanian et al., (2014), this kind of organisations has to pay taxes and
register themselves with state authorities to operate their smooth flow of business.
