Influencing Organisational Strategy

Attached are case study materials concerning Google. Use the case study materials and your own research to answer the attached questions. Attempt all four questions (please note the marks awarded for each question).

Diagrams and tables can be used in the main parts of your answers or put in as appendices.

Evidence of further reading will be marked accordingly.
