purpose of this report is to 1) Describe and analyse the theories of
human resources management, marketing, production and finance and
their applications 2) Explain the ethical and social responsibility issues
faced by businesses 3) Undertake leadership roles and make quality
decisions/judgments in the context of simulated business environments
a) We have chosen the Malaysian Red Crescent as our main charity
organization because it is a non-profit organization dedicated to
humanitarian acts and services and public goods by serving people
through first aid services and humanitarian programs for the needy and
helpless. One example being the recent east coast flood relief where
victims need help for daily necessities.
b) Targeted donation amount: RM 600
Targeted sales amount: RM 1200
Targeted sponsorship amount: RM 600
c. Target Market
a) Our customers are mostly local students with a few being young working
adults and the lecturers themselves. Most of them are people who are on
the go and need something fast to fill their hunger especially when they
are studying in a group or moving from one place to another. For example,
people walking through the Student Life Centre in Taylors are mostly
students travelling to or from classes to get food. Another example is
Students in Sunway University where students gather in groups to study.
b) Students need something fast and tasty, also the branding do effect the
students choice and preference for choice of food. For example, Dominos
pizza and Ikea curry puffs are famous for being delicious and many
demand for it.
c) The spending power of students are mostly low cost to mid- range raging
from RM 1-RM 10. They want something at a reasonable cost whereas
some are on tight budget and are less likely to spend on charity drives.

Life Center. Mainly those who are also selling food at a reasonable price.
b) Our competitors are selling foods raging from nasi lemak, fruit kebabs, fish
balls, drinks, juices, fruits and hot dogs at a similar price range from RM 1-
c) Most of our competitors strengths are the foods/ products being produced
by themselves. This can help them save a lot of cost and reduce other
costs such as labor charges and tax. Besides that, their vulnerabilities are
the quality control and consistency in their production of food eg: hygiene,
the demands are not met, not all the food taste the same etc. Besides
that, they also use strategies such as 2 items for a cheaper price or buy 1
free 1 and also by approaching customers first
d) Customers opt to buy from them because it is cheaper and is produced
fresh on the spot eg. Fruit juices. Besides that, the choice of food do effect
the customers choice for instance, customers prefer healthier food and
drinks made fresh. Also, the attractive prices such as RM 5 for 5 fish balls
makes it a reasonable food to buy and buy 1 free 1 tactics also attract
customers. Furthermore, with the help f the social media such as
facebook page and instagram also increase awareness of customers
about what are they selling, prices etc
