The Strategic Management Process: Theories, Concepts, Tools and Application
Successful general managers are highly competent in problem identification and analysis and have a strong action orientation. One purpose of this unit is to provide an environment that will allow students to hone these skills, while at the same time gain a conceptual understanding of the strategic manager’s task. Assignment three has two tasks that require you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills in strategic management.

First, you are required to develop a one page (A4) detailed schematic table or diagram that presents a comprehensive overview of the core theories, concepts and tools used by strategic managers who need to have an in-depth understanding of generic problems in all relevant functional areas of a firm or organisation. These theories, concepts and tools are covered in this unit and the unit’s textbook.

A schematic table is a presentation of the elements of a system or process, in this case the strategic management process. It should be visually powerful, appealing, informative, and presented in a logical order to reflect the overall integrity of the strategic management system or process. You can choose a small font, coloured boxes and different shapes. Acronyms may be used as headings, but each word within the acronym must be shown. At a minimum, your schema should include, but is not limited to:
• External environmental analysis (SMFA & PESTLE)
• Industry analysis (Porter’s 5 forces of competition)
• Resource model (TO + WS)
• Mission, vision, values
• Value chain analysis
• 5 generic business level strategies
• Managing relationships with customers
• Corporate strategy (vertical and horizontal integration, diversification, portfolio analysis)
• Co-operative, Competitive, International & M&A strategies.
• Diamond of national advantage
• Leadership
• Corporate governance
• Structure and controls.
