Choose an organization as the focus for the Strategic Plan, due in Week 6. Choose an organization according to the following. Do not pick any of these:
Avoid choosing an organization that is so large that historical data would be difficult to apply. Firms in the Russell 2000® index may fit well, whereas firms in the Dow 30 Industrial index do not.
Pick a U-form, public, for-profit company with at least three years financial data available on the EDGAR database at http://www.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/companysearch.html . Your life will be much more pleasant for the next six weeks if you pick a company which has opportunities or challenges about which you are already aware and have some idea about how you want to address them.
I prefer corporate strategy recommendations. That's why I ask for U-form companies. I might approve a business strategy if the various subsidiaries are well differentiated in the public financial disclosures. I am unlikely to approve a functional strategy unless you make an airtight case for doing so in this week one assignment.
I will approve most companies with annual Gross Sales between $400 million and $5 billion that meet the above criteria. Please don't proceed without first getting approval for your company as that will only set you back a week.
The organization can be a start-up that you or a significant other may create in the future. For a start-up, focus on an entrepreneurial idea that is of substantive interest, so this project leaves you with a product or service you may leverage in the future. I will want to have a discussion with any student who wants to propose a startup before I approve the idea.
