Organisational leaders have to closely monitor developments in the business environment in which they are operating. Key considerations when looking at the (external) environment is to separate them into two, being: direct and the indirect environment:
- The DIRECT ENVIRONMENT relates to those elements of the external environment which have a direct impact on the organisation.
