"Choose a large organisation and attempt to answer the following questions by researching the organisation. You may need to infer some of the answers yourself, e.g. you may not know exactly why a business changed from being a partnership to a public organisation, but your knowledge should tell you the most likely answer. If you cannot find an answer, move on to the next question. Feel free to add any other interesting information that you find.
Organisations to choose from:
Google, Apple, Microsoft, Dyson, Waterstones, Nike, Body Shop, HMV, Virgin Stores, TUI Leisure, BT Mobile, New Look, Boohoo, Arcadia group (owners of Top shop and other brands), McDonalds, Subway"
