A critical application of strategy dichotomies.
You are required to articulate your understanding of an element of the strategy process using one of the dichotomies contained in the perspectives on strategic thinking, strategy formation, & strategic renewal.
You should apply the concepts in a critical analysis of strategy processes & management behaviours undertaken using the workshop cases.
Your task is to examine and apply ONE of the strategy dichotomies of the strategy process contained in the perspectives on strategic thinking, strategy formation, & strategic renewal. As part of this you may wish to refer to the concepts of complexity & paradox contained in the introductory chapter of DeWit & Meyer.
You should critically apply the dichotomies to appropriate workshop cases, e.g. Apple, UPS, Ferrari, Honda, or you may use the mini-cases contained within the appropriate text chapters with which to compare & contrast each perspective.
You must take care that the case studies you select provide for an adequate discourse on the application of a particular dichotomy.
This assignment primarily tests your ability to demonstrate your academic skills and also skills of critical analysis of how an organisation conducts, or intends to conduct strategy processes, rather than extensive research on an organisation.
You should reference any authors, sources, or data used.
Must use of appendices to be valuable for your application of dichotomies to specific cases.
