Assignment Brief

“Strategy is the direction and scope of an organisation over the long term, which achieves advantage in a changing environment through its configuration of resources and competences with the aim of fulfilling stakeholder expectations”.

Johnson, Scholes and Whittington (2008:3)

It’s important for organisations to both develop and implement a strategic management plan to help ensure their long-term success.

Role of learner

For this assignment, you are required to choose ONE organisation from ONE of the following sectors: (a) Retail;
(b) Manufacturing; or
(c) Leisure
or, where you are in employment, you could choose your own organisation (“the organisation”).

You are also required to research key aspects of strategic management. Your research should include (but not be limited to) established techniques of analysis and enquiry used within strategic management.

This research should be clearly applied to the organisation. You are required to suggest how the strategic management research that you have carried out supports your proposed strategy for the organisation.

You also need to reflect on your learning from this module; identifying specific strategic management principles/theories/models that you are learned during the module and clearly explaining how you yourself could go onto use that knowledge in the future to gain a better understanding of organisations.
