Strategy has to capture internal and external aspects, that means to comprise competencies and market opportunities. Strategy has to keep in view the own company, the customers and the competitors.The challenge is to create customer values and competitive advantages to assure benefits and growth. As a result, the starting point of every strategic decision demonstrates the recognition and the analysis of the company's current situation containing a high variety of parameters. These parameters are generally defined by the company's influence into internal and external parameters. However, the understanding of the company's situation is only defined in absolute by analysing parameters and its bilateral dependencies. Therefore, the combination of the company's internal factors and the external environmental circumstances presents the basis for the strategy development and the resulting organisational marketing goals and application of the marketing instruments.The SWOT analysis is a strategic planning tool used to evaluate the Strengt...

  • In the recent years the number of industrial parks has grown rapidly worldwide driven by economic policies and industrial restructuring. The high resource consumption and prices as well as stringent environmental policies and laws have pushed the strategic importance of efficient resources management. Due to the proximity of companies, industrial parks offer potential for the development of interorganizational resource exchanges, in terms of energy and waste, infrastructure sharing and joint services. Utilizing this potential enhances the resource efficiency and added value of companies while often reducing their environmental impacts. Efficient management of resources in industrial parks requires an appropriate management concept. However, the research and literature on the management of industrial parks is very limited. As a solution the author introduces the concept for integrated resources management. The theoretical status quo of the concept is studied from the perspective of industrial ecology with the conclusion that the approach lacks a strategic management dimension. To tackle the problem, the author draws upon the strategic management and organizational theories as well as the approaches of network and environmental management. The empirical insights into the concept are sought by analyzing applied practices to network and resources management in industrial parks. The case studies comprise representative examples of successful industrial restructuring from Germany s...

  • As often reported in Business Week and Fortune, most large companies today concede that their cost systems are desperately obsolete. In this eagerly awaited book, John Shank and Vijay Govindarajan, nationally known experts on the strategic use of cost information, address head-on the fundamental concepts of management accounting that are in desperate need of change. The authors demonstrate how strategic cost management, the first analytic framework to relate meaningful accounting information to a firm's business strategy, is revolutionizing accounting-and overall business practices in leading firms. With numerous extended examples including Ciba-Geigy, Ford, Texas Instruments, and many more, the authors show how the three key tools of strategic cost management-value chain analysis, strategic positioning analysis, and cost driver analysis-provide a sustainable competitive advantage over firms whose cost systems are in disarray.With persuasive evidence, Shank and Govindarajan demonstrate the strategic power of value chain analysis, i.e., linking external value creating activities all the way from basic raw materials, to component suppliers, and through to the ultimate end-use product delivered to the consumers. Next, they examine how cost management and cost control must be differentiated depending on the strategic positioning chosen by the firm, be it cost leadership or product differentiation. Finally, the authors offer penetrating in-sights on cost driver analysis using ...

  • Strategic thinking rather than strategic planning is the key to sustainable success. Strategy involves a broader look, a deeper analysis and a longer time-frame. Strategic thinking is about considering the consequences of developments and possible developments, of actions and possible actions, on the success, prosperity and continuity of people, organizations or communities. And it is about the kind of success, prosperity and continuity that we seek. This study explores strategic thinking on the basis of strategy literature and cognitive psychology. It reviews studies of how strategic decision-makers operate, including the military. It helps to recognize strategic thinking ability in individuals, to teach strategic thinking and to foster it in those at the helm: directors, executives, commanders and public administrators.

  • This book provides an in-depth analysis of strategic positioning efforts of firms in the German consulting market. In his work, the author applies strategic group theory to the German management consulting industry, and provides an empirical test of the performance effects of alternative positioning strategies of management consulting firms. At the core is its empirical research, specifically the analysis of the "service expositions", through which consulting firms communicate the nature of their services to clients. In order to ascertain these service expositions, the author conducts content analysis of 233 consulting firms active in the German market. He then uses the findings in order to cluster the firms into distinct strategic groups and tests for associations between the positioning of firms within their respective group and their performance. Overall, the author finds evidence of three distinct strategic groups of consulting firms that operate in the German market, which he describes as "Standardized Solution Providers", "Functional Specialists" and "Functional Generalists". "Practitioners and industry observers are going to find this book uniquely helpful as it provides clarity on both the macro- and the micro-strategies of consulting firms active in Germany i. e., the overall service portfolio choices they make (which types of services to offer at all), and the specific communicative positioning of these service offerings vis-à-vis...
