|Assignment 1, 2016|
This assignment can be done individually, or in pairs or in a small group of 3
this Assignment you will
1. re-read your course info on GOPST and Strategies from CT224
2. Identify, in your own words (or in a combination of your classmates - if you do this with a partner or in a group) what you understand as the meaning of the word "strategy"
- don't worry about getting this perfect, you are being asked "what is strategy" at the beginning of the coourse, not the end.
3. From what you understand the word "strategy" to be, can you find some examples of a company's "strategy" among some ebusinesses today.
(for example if I said what is the overall strategy of Tim Hortons, you might say they focus on the "P" for "PLace" by having as many locations as possible, or the overall strategy of Walmart is to focus in the "P" for "Price" by having the lowest price possible, in combination with squeezing their suppliers)
4. So, after finding some examples of a two or three, or possibly 4 companies that have a "strategy" you can comprehend (at this stage in the course), "discuss" and "analyze" the strategy.
Quantity is not as important as your organizational ability
you asked me "how long is the report", I'd say 5 pages is too short for
what you need space to discuss, and 15 pages is way too long
