    StratSim Report Structure
  • 6. Your starting business position and initial strategy
    “Our overarching strategy throughout the eight-year period was a concentrated marketing strategy focusing solely on young families who most value safety. This is based on market niche strategy and reflected in companies such as Volvo.”
    StratSim Report Examples
  • 7. Your firm’s performance objectives and actual performance
    “Initial forecasts of 10% per annum profit growth seemed ambitious but were met or exceeded in every year bar one. In period six, severe and unforseen drops in GDP led to the firm yielding a loss. Our team reacted by cutting prices temporarily and focusing more on the budget market.”
    StratSim Report Examples
  • 8. Key strategic moves that led to your success (or demise)
    “Deciding to focus solely on safety meant a sacrifice to other dimensions valued by our customers. In order to properly pursue our market niche strategy, we had to focus all our efforts on serving the niche (Hooley et al, 2008). The sacrifice did start to pay off though as we captured market share in all safety-conscious segments”
    StratSim Report Examples
  • 9. How you left the company positioned for the future
    “Auto Co. is well positioned to maintain a strong brand around safety. Our continued investments in R&D and advertising will help develop vehicles perceived as extremely safe. The most powerful concept in marketing is owning a word in the prospect’s mind (Ries& Trout, 1994). The way that Coke owns the word ‘cola’, or Xerox owns ‘copier‘, Autos Co. will continue to own ‘safe’.
    StratSim Report Examples
  • 10. Important lessons learned from the simulation experience
    “During the great recession of period six, Auto Co. learned a hard lesson about advertising during periods of slower sales. Kamber (2002) finds that maintaining advertising expenditure levels during a recession tends to correspond to better rates of sales growth in future years. This theory and our experience cutting our advertising in period six showed we forfeited opportunities for growth in period seven.
