  7. 7.  Consider each possible course of action individually while analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of the company and its competition.  Evaluate the pros and cons of the various alternatives and eliminate the inferior options on the basis of the facts available in the case.  You can also make certain assumptions on the basis of your environmental knowledge to solve business problems.
