MGMT 7730 Strategic Analysis (Fall: 3 )
This course introduces you to a set of analytical frameworks that enable you to explain performance differences among firms and that provide a structure for strategic decisions to enhance firms’ future competitive positions. Building on the foundation laid by the Introduction to Strategic Management course that you took earlier, we will cover strategy both at the business level (introducing tools of industry analysis and competitive positioning) and at the corporate level (examining how decisions regarding corporate scope –horizontal, vertical, and global– create or destroy value in multibusiness firms). We will also study strategy implementation, focusing on the organizational structure, systems and processes that are put in place to manage the corporation. Throughout the course, our viewpoint will be that of the top management team who has responsibility for the long-term health of the entire organization.
