  • PPT Lab (www.PPTLab.com) – Crowdsourced Business Presentation Design Service 10 Usually, Basic Descriptors contains 2 sections: Introduction (Framing the Problem) This section offers an opportunity to provide a brief historical overview and to describe the problem as perceived by the firm. This is useful because most strategy is path-dependent: the firm’s strategic alternatives in the short run are constrained by its resources, industry position, and strategy. This is particularly useful in corporate level analysis. Description of Basic Firm Facts Provide some context about each business of the firm—e.g., its ownership, where the firm is located in the flow of goods from basic inputs to final consumers, the products or services, customers, and the products/services of other firms in the same business. – Ownership and control – Flow of Goods Analysis (Supply Chain) – Construct a Product-Customer Matrix for Each Business – Industry Product-Customer Matrices – Strategic Group Maps We begin by laying out the basic descriptors of the company, such as ownership and control, products, customers, and its supply chain Current Situation Analysis – Basic Descriptors Analysis of Current Situation Assessment of Current Situational Analysis Solution Analysis Basic Descriptors Firm ownership and control, flow of goods, firm product-customer matrix, strategic groups Source: A Framework for Written Comprehensive Strategic Analysis, Boardman, Vining This document is a partial preview.
