This model of strategy has been used for analysis of more than 1,100 companies with accurate results.

This research project is an intelligence based analysis of Exxon Mobil Corporation, conducted by a group of Masters of Business Administration (MBA) students at Dallas Baptist University, for their capstone project as part of the Strategic Management Decisions, taught by Dr. Jim Underwood.
