Guidance for Unit 5
Hello everyone and welcome to Unit 5. We have made it to the final unit!
Here are some points to help you in your Unit 5 COMPLETE assignment.
Case Summary and the Narrative Format:The case summary is supposed to be on the Real time case assigned for the unit. In Unit 5, it is Real-Time Case 15: FedEx. . In other words, â€œthese firmsâ€ refers only to FedEx. Remember to use the narrative format in your summary, and remember as well to gather (from the internet)and include real time information of strategic significance
Case Analysis #1: The first question is very self explanatory. In the second question, you will analyze whether FedExâ€™s distinctive competence can be used for sustained competitive advantage. It will be a good idea to review what you read in Unit 1 about the Resource Based View and combine it with the SWOT analysis.
Case Analysis #2: This is a very straightforward question on crisis management. Crisis management is one of the topics in your READ assignment for this unit. I will simply look at how well you integrate the concepts in your reading into your analysis, given the two crises you identify.
Application: The application is about strategy formulation. Make sure you state clearly which strategy you would pursue at each level, that is, Corporate, Business Unit, and Functional. Please identify your strategies using the terms in the textbook. For example, under corporate level strategies, the alternatives are Growth, Stability, and Retrenchment. Under growth, the options are further divided into internal and external. It will be a good idea to review chapters 6, 7, 8, and 9 for correct terminology. Keep this essay concise and to the point. It is possible to write 30 pages or more just on this question, but you need to maintain the 200 to 400 word limit. Under the functional strategies, for example, limit your discussion to only one or two pertinent dimensions, not the whole cornucopia of functional strategies.
