Identify a key strategy of an organization of your choice. Evaluate whether this strategy is suitable for this firm.
Use Hubbard’s implementing strategy model (page 345 of your prescribed text book) to evaluate the strategy implementation process of the organisation.
Guidelines for this task:
You are required to write a 3500 word report including 200 words of an executive summary, but excluding references and appendices. You should also perform the following tasks:
1. Identify and discuss the strategy that the organisation (or SBU) is implementing/has implemented by examining its strategy statement and/or its value chain activities.
2. Evaluate the suitability of the organisation’s current strategy based on the outcomes of your analysis (i.e. identify the organisation’s current strategy and the most significant factors affecting the organisation’s performance, and your understanding of the organisation’s strategy). If the current strategy is not suitable, please recommend no more than two alternate strategic initiatives that the organisation should pursue and justify your recommendations.
3. Evaluate the implementation of strategy.
4. Develop your conclusion.
