You must not submit an assignment that analyses the mobile phone industry and or a mobile phone company.

To analyse a business policy or strategic management topic, to carry out individual research or evaluation of an organization. 


Meet the learning outcomes listed above, identify and critically analyse fundamental issues related to strategic management. Undertake a study that shows clear evidence of synthesis and evaluation.


There are a number of ways you might carry out this assignment: here are a few ideas:

  • Use a theoretical model to reflect upon the reality (practice) of a situation. Use theory to predict the outcomes of practice. Use practice to reflect upon / modify theory;
  • Compare theory and practice: Does M.E. Porter’s (1985) model of competition support the experience of practitioners? i.e. use a practical example /case / issue to reflect on Porter’s model(s) and examine success and / or failure.
  • A case study approach: Is Steve Ballmer, C.E.O. managing Microsoft as effectively as he might? i.e. do an analysis of Microsoft’s performance in  relation to declared (or undeclared) strategy and the efficacy of his strategy.
  • A recovery plan: My advice to the Chief Executive Officer of the Sony Corporation is ……i.e. suggest a way forward for the organization in light of their poor performance over the last 5 years.
  • A risk management strategy: My advice to British Petroleum’s Chief Executive Officer in light of their environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.


These are merely examples of approaches you might take; thinking up your own ideas might be more productive and fun.
