Notes on where to begin your Pestel

Speaking from experience, the most important place to begin when analyzing a business is 1. Annual Report. 

An Overview of the PESTEL Framework

You can judge 6 types of environmental influences in the PESTEL framework. They are political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal.

Posted by glasglow
