Teaching Notes

As we know, PESTLE analysis is a helpful tool for summarizing the situational analysis of the macro-environment. Understanding the marketing environment is critical to the identification and execution of marketing strategy.

However, it is often the overwhelming choice of potential macro-environment factors and trends to consider that makes PESTLE a somewhat challenging task for students.

Therefore, in order to simplify PESTLE analysis and assist teaching the concept in the classroom, plus assisting students with their assignment tasks, especially for marketing plans – I have developed a simple and automated tool for producing PESTLE.
