You are to make for Tourism Company 'Virgin Atlantic' a Case Study Report. The task is to address steps listed below . It will be 2500 words which does not include the references and appendix in the word count.
a) The report is to focus on three-specific issues namely:
â¢ Strategic Analysis;
â¢ Strategic Choice;
â¢ Strategic Implementation/evaluation.
b) Business strategy should be viewed from:
â¢ a historical perspective;
â¢ current strategies;
â¢ strategies for incremental and/or discontinuous change;
c) The report is to incorporate themes purported by the following academics:
Prahalad (2010, [url removed, login to view]) observed that â...most executives believe it's tough to identify breakthrough opportunitiesâ. Prahalad continued to elaborate by commenting â...several are pretty obvious; Peter Drucker once said that the best opportunities are "visible, but not seenâ (Prahalad 2009, 2010). Conversely, âthe nature and extent of competences required by a firm to perform competitively is not static (Turner and Crawford 1995, [url removed, login to view]). Notably, â...at any future time... [a firm] ...will need a set of competences appropriate and relevant to the strategy, operations and circumstances of that timeâ (Turner and Crawford 1995, [url removed, login to view]). To surmise, the â... most vexing strategic challenge is not how to obtain or sustain competitive advantageâ which has been the field of strategy's primary focusâbut, rather, how to keep finding new, unexpected ways to create valueâ (Zenger 2013, [url removed, login to view]).
