  4. 4. Part One: Introduction and Overall Framework of the Research Introduction It is necessary to carry out a critical analysis of overall performance of an organization, so that all the stakeholders may have a clear idea about future standing of the company. Two important methods of accessing an organization for business analysis are (1) Financial performance and (2) Business Evaluation. Evaluating financial performance of an organization tells about the financial position of the organization whereas Business evaluation studies the business environments in which the organization is operating. For a comprehensive analysis of any organization it is very vital that the organization be accessed not only for its financial performance but in business context as well. This because of the reason that financial performance and business context of an organization are interlinked to each other and effects of any positive or negative change in the business context can be felt in the financial performance of the organization. Thus only a combination of both the techniques will help lead us to carrying out a comprehensive and meaningful analysis of an organization. Users of financial statements can be categorized as internal users and external users. All stakeholders internal to the organization can be termed as internal users of the financial statements i.e. employees, managers at all tiers and equity holders etc. (Abel, et. al., 1996). Internal users have a key function to perform; manage and regulate the organization towards achieving its strategic goals. On the other hand, customers, suppliers and creditors, being external to the organization, are included in external users of financial statements (Aboody and Lev, 1998). This research report will make an endeavor to analyze my selected organization from the perspective of both internal and external users of financial statements. Topic Selection and reasons for its selection For undertaking this research project I selected topic eight i.e. An Analysis and Evaluation of Business and financial performance of an organization over three recent years. This is an interesting topic to select because it is evaluation of not just financial performance but evaluation of business performance as well which thus makes it wholesome and a complete package in itself. This was the topic which caught my eyes when I was going through the list of twenty topics provided by the University. I have always had an inclination towards the subjects of
  5. 5. financial management/accounting and financial analysis. So it was very natural for me to select topic 8 for my research and analysis project. I felt as if I will truly be able to deploy the knowledge and understanding of subject matter I gained during the course of my studies. Company selection and reasons for its selection It seems as if there is no stopping to the growth of Fast food industry which is ever increasing. Due to rapid technological advancements there has been a tremendous change not just in taste but also in the way fast food industry traditionally use to carry out their business operations. Businesses which adapted to this rapid and dynamically changing business environment managed to seize a competitive advantage in the face of competition and flourished whereas those businesses which could not keep up the pace with this rapidly changing business environment now even cease to exist. McDonalds is one among those who saw it coming and thus adopted its procedures to new technologies which resulted in companys growth and increasing market share. McDonalds is a fast food chain with its origin in United States of America. It has many franchises in US and other countries of the world being operative in 117 countries with over 35000 restaurants all over the world (Datamonitor, 2013). Though it offers a wide range of products to its customers however, its four most famous fast food items are (1) Cheeseburger (2) hamburger (3) French Fries and (4) McNuggets, not to mention my personal favorite McDonalds Apple Pie desserts (Morningstar, 2013). Such a large outfit was though challenging to analyze but then I wanted to select as dynamic an organization as McDonalds which should also help me in my studies and future career pursuits as well. Analyzing the financial and business performance of McDonalds would not have been completed if it was not benchmarked against its closest competitor which led me to select Burger King Worldwide (BKW) being the closest rival to McDonalds.
