PowerPoint Presentation: Setting Objectives Setting objectives The purpose of setting objectives is to convert managerial statements of strategic vision and business mission into specific performance targets — results and outcomes the organization wants to achieve. Setting objectives and then measuring whether they are achieved or not help managers track an organization's progress.

PowerPoint Presentation: What Does a Company's Strategy Consist Of? Crafting a strategy to achieve the desired outcomes Company strategies concern how: how to grow the business how to satisfy customers how to outcompete rivals how to respond to changing market conditions how to manage each functional piece of the business and develop needed organizational capabilities how to achieve strategic and financial objectives PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy Implementation and Execution Strategy implementation concerns the managerial exercise of putting a freshly chosen strategy into place Strategy execution deals with the managerial exercise of supervising the ongoing pursuit of strategy, making it work, and showing measurable progress in achieving the targeted results. Implementing and executing the chosen strategy PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy Evaluation and Monitoring It is management's duty to stay on top of the company's situation, deciding whether things are going well internally, and monitoring outside developments closely. Marginal performance or too little progress, as well as important new external circumstances, will require corrective actions and adjustments. Evaluating performance, monitoring new developments, and initiating corrective adjustments PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy Hierarchy Corporate Strategy Business Strategies Functional Strategies (R&D, Marketing, Manufacturing, HR, Finance, etc. Operating Strategies (regions, plants, departments within functional areas) Strategy hierarchy for a diversified company PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy Hierarchy Business Strategies Functional Strategies (R&D, Marketing, Manufacturing, HR, Finance, etc. Operating Strategies (regions, plants, departments within functional areas) Strategy hierarchy for a single-business company PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy Hierarchy Corporate Strategic Vision Functional Areas Visions Operating Unit Visions Business-Level Strategic Vision Corporate Strategic Objectives Functional Areas Objectives Operating Unit Objectives Business-Level Strategic Objectives Corporate Strategic Strategy Functional Areas Strategies Operating Unit Strategies Business-Level Strategy PowerPoint Presentation: Factors Shaping the Choice of Strategy PowerPoint Presentation: Factors Shaping the Choice of Strategy Economic, societal, political, and government regulations Competitive conditions and industry attractiveness Company opportunity and threat Company strengths and weaknesses, competencies and capabilities Personal ambitions and business philosophies of key executives Shared values and company culture External Factors Internal Factors The mix of considerations that determines a company’s strategic situation PowerPoint Presentation: Factors Shaping the Choice of Strategy Economic, societal, political, and government regulations What an enterprise can and cannot do strategywise is always constrained by what is legal, by what complies with government policies and regulatory requirements, by what is considered ethical, and by what is in accord with societal expectations and the standards of good social and community citizenship. PowerPoint Presentation: Factors Shaping the Choice of Strategy An industry's competitive conditions and overall attractiveness are big strategy-determining factors. A company's strategy has to be tailored to the nature and mix of competitive factors in play—price, product quality, performance features, service, warranties, and so on. Competitive conditions and industry attractiveness PowerPoint Presentation: Factors Shaping the Choice of Strategy A company's strategy needs to be deliberately aimed at capturing its best growth opportunities, especially the ones that hold the most promise for building sustainable competitive advantage and enhancing profitability. Strategy should also provide a defense against external threats to the company's well-being and future performance. Company opportunity and threat PowerPoint Presentation: Factors Shaping the Choice of Strategy One of the most pivotal strategy-shaping internal considerations is whether a company has or can acquire the resources, competencies, and capabilities needed to execute a strategy proficiently. The best path to competitive advantage is found where a firm has competitively valuable resources and competencies, where rivals can't develop comparable capabilities except at high cost or over an extended period of time. Company strengths and weaknesses, competencies and capabilities PowerPoint Presentation: Factors Shaping the Choice of Strategy Managers do not dispassionately assess what strategic course to steer. Their choices are typically influenced by their own vision of how to compete and how to position the enterprise and by what image and standing they want the company to have. Personal ambitions and business philosophies of key executives PowerPoint Presentation: Factors Shaping the Choice of Strategy An organization's policies, practices, traditions, philosophical beliefs, and ways of doing things combine to create a distinctive culture. The stronger a company's culture, the more that culture is likely to shape the company's strategic actions, sometimes even dominating the choice of strategic moves. Shared values and company culture PowerPoint Presentation: Strategic Analysis and Strategic Choices Analyzing strategically about industry and competitive conditions Analyzing strategically about a company’s own situation What strategic options does the company realistically have? What is the best strategy? PowerPoint Presentation: Strategic Analysis and Strategic Choices Analyzing strategically about industry and competitive conditions The Key Questions What are the industry’s dominant economic features? What is causing the industry’s competitive structure and business environment to change? Which companies are in the strongest/weakest positions? What strategic moves are rivals likely to make next? What are the key factors for competitive success? Is the industry attractive and what are the prospects for above-average profitability? PowerPoint Presentation: Strategic Analysis and Strategic Choices Analyzing strategically about a company’s own situation The Key Questions How well is the company’s present strategy working? What are the company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats? Are the company’s prices and costs competitive? How strong is the company’s competitive position? What strategic issues does the company face? PowerPoint Presentation: Three Tests of Best Strategy The Performance Test The Competitive Advantage Test The Goodness of Fit Test The Best Strategy PowerPoint Presentation: A good strategy has to be well matched to industry and competitive conditions, market opportunities and threats, and other aspects of the enterprise's external environment. At the same time, it has to be tailored to the company's resource strengths and weaknesses, competencies, and competitive capabilities. Three Tests of Best Strategy The Goodness of Fit Test PowerPoint Presentation: A good strategy leads to sustainable competitive advantage. The bigger the competitive edge that a strategy helps build, the more powerful and effective it is. Three Tests of Best Strategy The Competitive Advantage Test PowerPoint Presentation: A good strategy boosts company performance. Two kinds of performance improvements are the most telling of a strategy's caliber: gains in profitability and gains in the company's competitive strength and long-term market position. Three Tests of Best Strategy The Performance Test PowerPoint Presentation: Analyzing Industry Environment and Designing Competitive Strategy PowerPoint Presentation: Porter’s Five Forces Rivalry Buyer Power Supplier Power Threats of Substitutes Barriers to Entry PowerPoint Presentation: The Intensity of Rivalry A larger number of firms Slow market growth High fixed cost High storages costs or highly perishable products Low switching cost Low level of product differentiation Strategic stakes are high High exit barriers A diversity of rivals Industry shakeout The intensity of rivalry is influenced by the following industry characteristics: PowerPoint Presentation: Barriers to Entry Entry barriers are influenced by the following factors : Absolute cost advantages Proprietary learning curve Access to inputs Government policy Economies of scale Capital requirements Brand identity Switching costs Access to distribution Expected retaliation Proprietary products PowerPoint Presentation: Threats of Substitutes Threats of substitutes are influenced by the following factors : Switching costs Buyer inclination to substitute Price-performance trade-off of substitutes PowerPoint Presentation: Buyer Power Buyer power is influenced by the following factors : Bargaining leverage Buyer volume Buyer information Brand identity Price sensitivity Threat of backward integration Product differentiation Buyer concentration vs. industry Substitutes available Buyers' incentives PowerPoint Presentation: Supplier Power Supplier power is influenced by the following factors : Supplier concentration Importance of volume to supplier Differentiation of inputs Impact of inputs on cost or differentiation Switching costs of firms in the industry Presence of substitute inputs Threat of forward integration Cost relative to total purchases in industry PowerPoint Presentation: Dominant Economic Characteristics of the Industry Environment (market size and growth rate, geographic scope, number and sizes of buyers and sellers, pace of technological change and innovation, scale economies, experience curve effects, capital requirements, and so on) Competitive Analysis Rivalry among competing sellers Threat of potential entry Competition from substitutes Power of suppliers Power of consumers Competitive Position of Major Companies/ Strategic Groups.

Customer loyalty can discourage potential entrants. Focusing develops core competencies that can act as an entry barrier. Buyer Power Ability to offer lower price to powerful buyers. Large buyers have less power to negotiate because of few close alternatives. Large buyers have less power to negotiate because of few alternatives. Supplier Power Better insulated from powerful suppliers. Better able to pass on supplier price increases to customers. Suppliers have power because of low volumes, but a differentiation-focused firm is better able to pass on supplier price increases. Threat of Substitutes Can use low price to defend against substitutes. Customer's become attached to differentiating attributes, reducing threat of substitutes. Specialized products & core competency protect against substitutes. Rivalry Better able to compete on price. Brand loyalty to keep customers from rivals. Rivals cannot meet differentiation-focused customer needs. PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy Implementation and Execution PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy Implementation Building a capable organization Designing strategy-supportive reward system Creating a strategy-supportive corporate culture Exerting strategic leadership Linking budget to strategy Establishing strategy-supportive policies and procedures Instituting best practices and commitment to continuous improvement Installing information system to support strategy execution HR & Organization Development Factor System Factor Effective Strategy Execution PowerPoint Presentation: Building a Capable Organization Building a capable organization Staffing the organization Putting together a strong management team Recruiting and retaining talented employees Building Core Competencies and Capabilities Developing competence/capability portfolio suited to current strategy Updating and reshaping the portfolio as external conditions and strategy change Structuring the Organization and Work Effort Organizing business function and processes, value chain activities, and decision making PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy-supportive Reward System Designing strategy-supportive reward system Strategy-supportive motivational practices and reward systems are powerful management tools for gaining employee buy-in and commitment. The key to creating a reward system that promotes good strategy execution is to make strategically relevant measures of performance the dominating basis for designing incentives, evaluating individual and group efforts, and handing out rewards. PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy-supportive Corporate Culture Creating a strategy-supportive corporate culture Building a strategy-supportive culture is important to successful strategy execution because it produces a work climate and organizational esprit de corps that thrive on meeting performance targets and being part of a winning effort. PowerPoint Presentation: Strategic Leadership Exerting strategic leadership Strategic leaders encourage people to be innovative in order to keep the organization responsive to changing conditions, alert to new opportunities, and anxious to pursue fresh initiatives. Strategic leaders also actively push corrective actions to improve strategy execution and overall strategic performance. PowerPoint Presentation: Linking Budget to Strategy Linking budget to strategy Reworking the budget to make it more strategy-supportive is a crucial part of the implementation process because every organization unit needs to have the people, equipment, facilities, and other resources to carry out its part of the strategic plan. PowerPoint Presentation: Strategy-supportive Policy Establishing strategy-supportive policies and procedures Prescribing new or freshly revised policies and operating procedures aids the task of implementation (1) by promoting consistency in how particular strategy-critical activities are performed in geographically scattered operating units and (2) by helping to create a strategy-supportive work climate and corporate culture. PowerPoint Presentation: Continuous Improvement Instituting best practices and commitment to continuous improvement Competent strategy execution entails visible, unyielding managerial commitment to best practices and continuous improvement. Benchmarking, the discovery and adoption of best practices, and six sigma initiatives all aim at improved efficiency, better product, and greater customer satisfaction. PowerPoint Presentation: Information Support System Installing information system to support strategy execution Company strategies can’t be implemented well without a number of support system to carry on business operations. Well-conceived, state-of-the-art support system not only facilitate better strategy execution but can also strengthen organizational capabilities enough to provide a competitive edge over rivals.
