9th July Meeting
AGENDA ITEM1: Confirmation of Case Reading and Understanding
Lets confirm if all have read and understand the case very well? If not where lies your main challenge?
NB: Reply here only
i've read through but there is too much info, i can't confirm full comprehension...
the question asks for a detailed analysis of co. + industry (30) recommendations (60) & presentation (10)
The questions requires for two main parts:
a) A detailed analysis of the company and the industry (30 marks)
b) Your recommendations on appropriate strategic interventions that the organisation should implement in order to counteract the threat of the merger of its two largest competitors (60 marks)
Part b) however has three divisions as follows:
Your recommendations must include:
- A focus on the entrepreneurial process, intrapreneurship, innovation and creativity.(20 marks)
- An organisation design that will facilitate effective monitoring and control of divisions,stores and management performance, without sacrificing the independence and creativity of individual managers. (20 marks)
- The strategic implementation process together with the controls that should be in place to support the monitoring of the implementation of your recommendations. (20 marks)
may i suggest that we for the first couple of days all work on the detailed analysis, maybe give it until sunday when we can merge our analysis, then since the second part is divisible by three each member tackles on a section...
