Module 2

In the Module 2 Case, we will examine the innumerable ways in which the external environment affects the choice of strategy (creation of threats and opportunities), and how the external environment affects an organization’s chosen strategic direction.

How McCain responds to changes in the external environment. (2014). The Times 100. Retrieved on April 29, 2014, from http://businesscasestudies.co.uk/mccain-foods/how-…

Using the Times 100 article above, write a 6- to 7-page paper in which you address the following:

After performing some current research on McKain Foods, use SLEPT analysis to critically assess the external environment of McCain Foods, and determine the extent to which the company’s strategies should be adjusted pursuant to the opportunities and/or threats presenting themselves in the external environment.

Keys to the Assignment

In a 6- to 7-page paper, do the following:

  • Describe the strategy (or strategies) followed by McCain Foods.

  • Based on your research and informed analysis, should McCain Foods consider making any adjustments to the strategy or strategies you described above? Why or why not? Provide clear, rational support for your answer.

The key aspects of this assignment that are to be covered in your 6- to 7-page paper include the following:

  • After completing research in the library, apply the Grand Strategy Matrix to determine what you believe should be the optimal grand strategy (or blend of grand strategies) that should be pursued by Barnes and Noble.
  • Discuss the assumptions you have made in applying the Grand Strategy Matrix (i.e., rapid vs. slow growth; strong vs. weak competitive position).
  • Next, apply the BCG Matrix to Barnes and Noble’s core strategic choices (i.e., the company’s use of brick-and-mortar stores versus Internet business).
  • Compare the results from the BCG Matrix and the Grand Strategy Matrix: Does your use of the BCG Matrix support or refute your choice of grand strategy (or strategies) as selected by the Grand Strategy Matrix? Discuss.
  • Which grand strategy should Barnes and Noble follow? Why? Defend your answer.
  • Be sure to use a minimum of three library sources in support of your answers.
