Deliverables:•Industry Analysis / Profile Report :I want you to prepare an industry analysis and a company profile. The format for this industry profile is free but it is important that you use as much as possible the tools and techniques you learned in your textbook such as Porter Five Force analysis, STEEP Analysis, SWOT, Industry Matrix, etc.
Part B: Following Part A that focused on industry analysis / company profile, this project will require you to take the next step and do a complete strategic management plan of a public trade company of your choice (The same company used in the Part A). In choosing this company, remember that you need to be able to collect enough information about the company to do a meaningful analysis. A strategic management plan typically include:
i) some description of the company of interest identifying a problem/issue a company may be currently facing,
ii) ii) an evaluation of company’s current strategy and possibly major recent corporate initiatives,
iii) -an assessment of company’s performance,
iv) -brief company’s industry analysis,
