Assignment Content

  1. Resource: Strategic Plan, Part 1: Environmental Scan Grading Guide

    You will perform an environmental scan for your target company.

    Choose an organization according to the following:

    • Current employer
    • Most recent or former employer
    • Place of business that you have patronized or have been familiar with over a long period of time.
    • Avoid choosing an organization that is so large that historical data would be difficult to apply. Firms in the Russell 2000® index may fit well, whereas firms in the Dow 30 Industrial index probably do not.
    • The organization can be a start-up that you or a significant other may create in the future. For a start-up, focus on an entrepreneurial idea that is of substantive interest, so this project leaves you with a product you may leverage in the future.

    • Determine how to create value and sustain competitive advantage using the environmental scanning strategy.
    • Evaluate the company’s external environment.
    • Assess the company’s general environment.
    • Evaluate the organization’s industry operating environment.
    • Submit your assignment/Journal as a 7th edition APA Microsoft Word document to include a Title page, Introduction, body, conclusion and Reference page.
