Sample Paper: Strategic Analysis Reporting

Strategic Analysis Reporting

Introduction

Organizations are always looking to overcome the challenges of evolving, dynamic, and unpredictable markets if they are to maintain a competitive advantage over other companies in the same industry. One of the ways they do this is by incorporating insights from strategic analysis models. According to Papulova & Gazova (2016, p.572), a strategic analysis tool consolidates company information about how to evaluate and develop their current environment. It also identifies threats and opportunities to businesses that managers should consider during decision making (Papulova & Gazova, 2016). With that said, the following article will be a review of Flight Centre Limited (FLT), which is one of the companies in the travel industry. FLT’s growth has been attributed to a strong reliance on its entrepreneurial culture and outstanding business model (Johnson et al., 2017). The research has three parts: the identification of the strategic issues facing the organization, its unique resources and capabilities, and an analysis of whether the competitive strategy addresses critical issues. Any justifiable improvements to the strategy will also be included in the analysis. Continue reading

SAMPLE PAPER: BUSINESS INNOVATION

BUSINESS INNOVATION

Introduction

The proliferation of the internet and the spanning out of globalization has led to an increased business presence in industries and markets. The result has been the constant saturation of the said markets. Consequently, it has led organizations to develop newer ways through which they create newer value propositions for the business and its customers. Also consistent with these trends is the shift from a focus on the supply side of a business offering to customer demand dynamics. According to Teece & Pisano, companies can no longer depend on the accumulation of technological assets to hold a considerable competitive advantage in the market (1994, p.1). Organizations now have to adopt dynamic capabilities to make sure that they capture value wherever they can find it. The shift requires the consideration other elements such as the timely response to rapid and flexible product innovation, together with an adequate management capability, for example, to coordinate and utilize the internal and external competencies efficiently (Teece & Pisano, 1994). These capabilities rest on the potential of the resources, processes, and values in an organization, as they determine what it can or cannot do and the sorts of innovations the organization can embrace (Christensen & Overdorf, 2000). In light of this, a competitive advantage is now only made possible by the exploitation of both internal and external firm-specific capabilities, and also the development of new ones. The interaction of all these factors is what represents a firm’s innovative capability. The following article discusses a business innovation that relies on a different organizational element other than its technological aspects. The discussion employs the Bottom of the Pyramid theory by C. K. Prahalad. Continue reading

Sample Paper: Theory of Business Innovation

Introduction

All business entities have to invent and change over time for the simple reason that everything changes because of new knowledge, scientific and industrial development, and changing competitive environments. Innovation involves creativity because there has to be a shift in the problem definition for new ways of finding solutions to emerge. Entrepreneurship, which is the overall disposition to avail the power of creativity and innovation to facilitating solution to the problems of society and business, thrives simply due to the advancement of knowledge (Dodgson & Gann, 2010, p. 60). However, knowledge or scientific research that is not controlled is potentially dangerous and even disruptive. Creative problem solving as a theory of business innovation is based on the consideration that all innovations need to be sustainable and fit-for the purposes sought in the industry or business. Creative problem solving depends of safeguards attributed to the situations and circumstances of innovation. Without safeguards and a compounded analysis of the intrinsic and extrinsic factors involved, creativity might be counterproductive. In contemporary management and ethical leadership standards, creative problem solving as a mechanism of innovation should address the immediate needs of the business while also making a critical cognizance of the long-term and protracted consequences.     Continue reading
