2.4 Planning with Gantt charts

One useful way of planning is to use a Gantt chart with supporting notes. Examples of Gantt charts are shown in Figures 1 and 2. Gantt charts are useful because they relate all activities to a single visual calendar. They are a way of analysing the tasks ahead in the form of smaller pieces of work that are to be done within defined time-scales. The chart should ideally include all your expected ‘milestones’ and ‘deliverables’, each with time-scales. For each ‘deliverable’, ensure

3.7.4 Explaining

You need to be able to think of things from your reader's point of view. The reader cannot see into your mind so you have to explain your points quite fully and carefully. You need to give examples to illustrate what you are talking about and to justify what you say. In other words, you need a sense of your ‘audience’ and you have to work out how to ‘speak’ to these readers in the right ‘tone of voice’.

6.1 Direct proportion

The first type of proportion relationship is known as direct proportion. Two quantities are said to be directly proportional to each other if when one doubles, triples, quadruples, the other also doubles, triples, quadruples. For example, if you buy three times as many items as usual, you would expect to have to pay three times as much money (unless there was some special offer available), because the price is directly proportional to the number of items bought.

3.1 Patches and antivirus software

In this section we will look at two of the ways in which you can protect yourself from malware:

  1. Ensure that your computer has the latest patch from Microsoft or your operating system vendor.

  2. Install antivirus software that will protect you from these problems, and ensure that you keep it up to date.

(Later in this unit we will discuss firewalls, which you can also use to protect your computer.)

4.1 Preparing

In the preparation phase you should pause before starting a new section of work and think about it as a whole. What needs to be covered? What are the various components of this block of work? What are the learning objectives or outcomes? What will you need to know and be able to do at the end of it? What is required in the assignment?

There are two main activities during this phase, both directly related to your course work and assignment:

3.3.2 Key characteristics of being a sole trader

In general terms, some of the key characteristics of being a sole trader are that:

  • you ‘own’ the business; strictly, you own the property of the business, and have a variety of other legal capacities. In a more general sense, we can say that the wealth represented by the business is yours; in other words, you are entitled to all the capital of the business.

  • you make the decisions which affect the nature and running of the business.

3.2.4 Functional and team roles

When individuals are being selected for membership of a team, the choice is usually made on the basis of task-related issues, such as their prior skills, knowledge, and experience. However, team effectiveness is equally dependent on the personal qualities and attributes of individual team members. It is just as important to select for these as well.

When we work with other people in a group or team we each bring two types of role to that relationship. The first, and more obvious, is our

3.5 3.5 Globalisation

All this was taking place in the global context of the ending of the ‘long post-war boom’ in the early 1970s. Profit rates were falling and there was a return of generalised capitalist crises, an intensification of competition and a consequent acceleration in the ‘internationalisation’ of production, as larger firms ‘went global’ in their search for restored profit levels. These developments not only exacerbated the problems of ‘problem regions’, they also led to fundamental c
