ABSTRACT
The purpose of this dissertation is to identify the External/Industry Environment Analysis and the Internal Organisational Analysis and how they impact on the operations within the hospitality industry.
This report made use of the available secondary data to determine the external and internal environmental factors influencing the organisations operation, the organisation structure and the impact on their reliance on technology to keep up with the changing business environment.
Internal environments were also assessed to determine how organisations operate through the review of literature on communication processes. An evaluation of the communication and reporting system of the Intercontinental Adelaide was also undertaken. These reviews were used to come up with suitable conclusions and recommendations at the end of the study or research.
This study relies in the importance of comprehending the impact of these factors in an organisation to properly analyse the external business environment, internals business environment, organisation structure and challenges of leading innovations. Identifying business opportunities and threats, weakness and strengths are useful in programming for the future new investment in the organisation and in particular the hospitality industry.

CHAPTER ONE:
INTRODUCTION
In the past one or so decade, businesses have evolved tremendously.
