A. COURSE DESCRIPTION

Strategy Formulation (LS 126) and Strategy Implementation (LS 127) serve as the capstone,
integrative courses for graduating seniors in management-oriented concentrations. Unlike other
business courses that concentrate narrowly on a particular function or a piece of the business
accounting, finance, marketing, production, human resources, or information systems, strategic
management is a big picture course. The center of attention is the total enterprise the industry and
competitive environment in which it operates its longterm direction and strategy, its resources
and competitive capabilities, and its prospects for success.

Students will use all the knowledge acquired from previous courses, coupled with strategic
management techniques to chart the future directions of different organizations.

The centerpiece is the group business project, which is a hands-on experience for students in
business planning and implementation, inclusive of strategy formulation, implementation, and
evaluation. In the first semester, students will craft a business plan to develop and start up a
business. In the second semester, they will actually implement their business plan for at least three
months, evaluate their performance and strategies, and show how they can make the business
grow.

Major topics covered are: The Strategic Management Process; Mapping the Business Landscape;
Creating Competitive Advantage; Strategy Analysis and Choice; Implementing Strategies:
Management and Functional Issues; Review, Evaluation and Control. Case studies and readings
complement conceptual content.


B. COURSE OBJECTIVES
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
1. Explain and apply the process of strategic management strategy formulation, strategy implementation,
and strategy evaluation as well as think strategically about an organization by:
a. conducting strategic analysis in a variety of industries and competitive situations whether small or
large, startup or ongoing, local or global;

b. demonstrating why and how the different parts of the business need to be managed in strategic
harmony for the organization to operate in a winning fashion, using the knowledge gained in earlier
management courses and;
c. assessing business risk, making sound decisions, and achieving effective outcomes.
2. Implement a business plan that demonstrates an entrepreneurial mindset and develops competencies in
crafting business strategy, weighing strategic options, developing scenarios to evaluate various
alternatives, and making focused strategic decisions.
3. Apply exemplary ethical principles, sound personal and company values, and socially responsible and
sustainable management practices.
