week 1
Robin Hood (graded)
Read the Robin Hood case C1 in the textbook. (The case begins right after Chapter 13.) How can
you relate this case to strategic management?
Strategic Management (graded)
Select a company in the news and apply one or more of the strategic concepts from Chapter 1 to
the company. Be sure to state what concept and page from the textbook you are applying.
Examples could be such concepts as romantic view of leadership versus control view (pages 5–
7), competitive advantage (page 8), four key attributes (page 9), realized versus intended strategy
(page 12), corporate governance, stakeholder management, NGOs, and more. Next, critically
evaluate the applications proposed by your classmates.
week 2
Course Project Selection and SWOT (graded)
Select your Course Project organization and post it here. State why you chose it. Be sure no one
has chosen the same one already by reading prior posts so that no organization has been picked
by more than one student. Apply SWOT analysis to your Course Project organization. Post the
results here to share with the class. Then critically evaluate the SWOT analysis of at least one
other class member.
Strategy and Performance (graded)
Please read Case C4, The Best-Laid Incentive Plans Case Study. What does this tell you about
strategy and performance? What specific course strategic concepts relate to this case and how
would you apply them?
week 3
Mission Statement (graded)
Post your Course Project organization's mission statement here, if you can locate it. If not, post
what you think it might be. How do you think its mission statement has focused the
organization? How hard was it to find the mission statement? What value do you see the mission
statement providing to the organization and how might it be made better, if at all?
Clicks and Bricks (graded)
Select a business that has made the transition from bricks to clicks. Why did you choose them
and how have they done so far?
week 4
Global Growth (graded)
Select a business and describe the alternative growth options available to the firm in the global
environment. Which would you recommend and why?
Reverse Innovation (graded)
Reverse Innovation is the strategy of innovating in emerging (or developing) markets and then
selling these innovations in developed markets. Companies are developing products in emerging
countries like China and India for global distribution. Many of these products have been re-
engineered and unnecessary functions stripped out of the product. How will reverse innovation
impact the U.S. marketplace? What specific products and companies do you expect to see
impacted by this trend?
week 5
Motivation (graded)
Please review the following
link: http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/en/dan_pink_on_motivation.html and comment on it. In the
lecture we learned that "Behavioral control is gaining support as many organizations seek to
align the entire organization to deliver coherent, coordinated strategies." How is behavioral
control impacted by motivational approaches such as the one in the video? What motivational
approaches are you aware of that have been either very effective or ineffective?
diss 2
Jamba Juice (graded)
Read the Jamba Juice Case Study (C30) and comment on the case. What did you learn from
reading this case? If you have been a customer of Jamba Juice, please share your experience and
opinion of their franchises? What do you think of using a franchise strategy to grow a business
such as Jamba Juice?
week 6
Leadership Traits (graded)
Name a figure in the business environment whom you would identify as a successful leader.
• What traits does the leader possess?
• What is the most important trait? Support your argument with evidence.
•
Ethical Questions (graded)
What unethical business practices have you personally encountered? What steps would you take
as leader of the organization to prevent this behavior? Please read the American International
Group (AIG) and the Bonus Fiasco (Case 6) in the textbook as we discuss this subject.
week 7
Innovation (graded)
We read in this week's reading that there are types of innovation—product innovation, process
innovation, radical innovation, and incremental innovation. In addition, Clayton Christenson
introduced disruptive innovation and sustaining innovation. Pick one of the innovation types and
give us an example of it.
Entrepreneurship (graded)
From our readings this week, we learned there are different ways of entrepreneurship. Find an
example and share it here, explaining why you choose it and what it teaches us.
