Project 4: Strategy Selection, Implementation and Evaluation
Instructions
BMGT 495 – Project 4: Strategy Selection, Implementation and Evaluation (Week 8)
NOTE: All submitted work is to be your original work. You may not use any work from another
student, the Internet or an online clearinghouse. You are expected to understand the Academic
Dishonesty and Plagiarism Policy, and know that it is your responsibility to learn about
instructor and general academic expectations with regard to proper citation of sources as
specified in the APA Publication Manual, 6th Ed. (Students are held accountable for in-text
citations and an associated reference list only).
Project 4 is due Saturday at 11:59 p.m. eastern time of week 8 unless otherwise changed by the
instructor.
Purpose:
This project is the last of four projects. You will generate a pool of alternative strategies, evaluate
these alternative strategies, and select the best strategy using the tools and concepts learned
throughout the course. You will develop implementation plans, evaluative plans to control the
implementation process, and plan for post-evaluation measures. You will also draw from previous
business courses to develop an understanding of how organizations develop and manage strategies to
establish, safeguard and sustain its position in a competitive market.
Skill Building:
In this project, you are building many different skills including research, critical thinking, writing and
developing analytical skills related to various financial analysis tools and strategy tools used in
business. You will select optimal strategies, design how to implement and evaluate the
implementation process of the optimal strategies.
Outcomes Met With This Project:
•
•
•
•
•
Examine the impact of ethical decision making, social responsibility, stakeholder analysis, and
corporate governance on organizations and society
Utilize a set of useful analytical skills, tools, and techniques for analyzing a company strategically;
Integrate ideas, concepts, and theories from previously taken functional courses including, accounting
finance, market, business and human resource management;
Analyze and synthesize strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) to generate,
prioritize, and implement alternative strategies in order to revise a current plan or write a new plan and
present a strategic plan;
Evaluate the outcomes of identified strategies to determine their success and impact on short-term and
long-term objectives.
Instructions:
Step 1: Course Material and Research
•
You are required to research information about the focal company and the internal environment for this
project, You are accountable for using the course materials to support the ideas, reasoning and
conclusions made. Course materials use goes beyond defining terms but is used to explain the ‘why
and how’ of a situation. Using one or two in-text citations from the course materials and then relying o
Internet source material will not earn many points on the assignment. A variety of source material is
expected and what is presented must be relevant and applicable to the topic being discussed. Avoid
merely making statements but close the loop of the discussion by explaining how something
happens or why something happens, which focuses on importance and impact. In closing the loop,
you will demonstrate the ability to think clearly and rationally showing an understanding of the logical
connections between the ideas presented from the research, the course material and the question(s)
being asked.
•
Note: Your report is based on the results of the research performed and not on any prepared
documentation. What this means is that you will research and draw your own conclusions that are
supported by the research and the course material rather than the use any source material that puts
together any of the tools or techniques whether from the Internet, for-pay websites or any pre-prepared
document, video or source material. A zero will be earned for not doing your own analysis.
Success: The analysis is based on research and not opinion. You are not making recommendations
and you will not attempt to position the focal company in a better or worse light than other companies
within the industry merely because you are completing an analysis on this particular company. The
analysis must be based on factual information. Any conclusions drawn have to be based on factual
information rather than leaps of faith. To ensure success, as stated above, you are expected to use
the course materials and research on the focal company’s global industry and the focal
company. Opinion does not earn credit nor does using external sources when course materials can be
used. It is necessary to provide explanations (the why and how) rather than making
statements. Avoid stringing one citation after another as doing so does not show detailed
explanations.
•
Step 2: Research
In completing the report, you will use the chapters in the eBook as a guide and perform research on
the same company as in Projects 1 and 2, answer the required elements below in narrative form
following the steps.
Note: Your report is based on the results of the research performed and not on any prepared
documentation. What this means is that you will research and draw your own conclusions that
are supported by the research and the course material rather than the use any source material
that puts together any of the tools or techniques whether from the Internet, for-pay websites or
any document, video or source material. A zero will be earned for not doing your own analysis
Library Resources
On the main navigation bar in the classroom select, Resources and then select Library. Select
Databases by Title (A – Z). Select M from the alphabet list, and then select Mergent Online. You may
also use Market Line and should be looking at the focal company’s Annual Report or 10K report. You
are not depending on any one resource to complete the analysis. It is impossible to complete a
Porter’s Five Forces, competitive analysis or OT by using only course material.
You should not be using obscure articles, GlassDoor, or Chron or similar articles.

Scholarly Research in OneSearch
To search for only scholarly resources, you are expected to place a check mark in the space for
“Scholarly journals only” before clicking search.
Step 3: Specific Company for All Three Projects
For this project, each student in this course has been specifically assigned by your instructor to write
an independent report on one focal company. The assigned company must be used for all three
projects in this course. You are not allowed to write the reports on any other company different from
the company specifically assigned by your instructor. Students who fail to use the specifically assigne
companies from the list or use an unapproved company will receive a zero for the project.
The company that your instructor has assigned to you will be used for this project.
Step 4: Preparation for the Project
Before you begin writing the report, you will read the following requirements that will help you meet the
writing and APA requirements.
•
You will be doing an analysis on the selected company. When doing an analysis you are not merely
making statements that may be cited. Instead, you will be supporting the statements made. “Support”
is the process of explaining, discussing and analyzing “why” and “how,” which is a higher level critical
analytical skill that is required for this class. Support is needed to do well on this project.
•
Read the grading rubric for the project. Use the grading rubric while writing the report to ensure all
requirements are met that will lead to the highest possible grade.
Step 5: How to Set Up the Project
•
•
The document has to be written in Word or rtf. No other format is acceptable. No pdf files will be
graded. Use 12-point font for a double-spaced report. The final product cannot be longer than 16
pages in length, excluding the title page and reference page. Those items identified in the
implementation and action plans should appear under the appropriate heading in the paper. Do no us
an Appendix.
Create a title page with title, your name, the course number, the instructor’s name.
Use the following template using the headings to separate elements. Do not use bullets in your paper
as the required format is in narrative format with indented paragraph and no extra space between
paragraphs.
Introduction
(The Introduction paragraph is the first paragraph of the paper and will be used to describe to the
reader the intent of the paper explaining the main points covered in the paper. This intent should be
understood prior to reading the remainder of the paper so the reader knows exactly what is being
covered in the paper. Write the introduction last to ensure all of the main points are covered.)
Alternative Strategy Generation
To generate a pool of strategies, you will look at the organization’s business level strategy, corporate
level strategy and global strategy. Using the information and data collected from your research, and
the analytical outcomes from (a) external factor analysis in your Project 1 and (b) internal factor
analysis in Project 2, you will generate a pool of strategies.

level, business-unit level, and functional level)
Discuss a corrective action plan (including who, what, when and how) at the corporate level, businessunit level, and functional level.)
Conclusion
•
Create a concluding paragraph. The Conclusion is intended to emphasize the purpose/significance of
the analysis, emphasize the significance/consequence of findings, and indicate the wider applications
that are derived from the main points of the project’s requirements. You will draw conclusions about
the findings of the external environment analysis.

Step 6: Review the Paper
Read the paper to ensure all required elements are present.
The following are specific requirements that you will follow. Use the checklist to mark off that you have
followed each specific requirement.
Checklist
Specific Project Requirements
Proofread your paper
Read and use the grading rubric while completing the paper to ensure all
requirements are met that will lead to the highest possible grade.
Third person writing is required. Third person means that there are no words such
as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first person writing), nor is there use of “you or your”
(second person writing). If uncertain how to write in the third person, view this
link: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/first-second-and-thirdperson.
Contractions are not used in business writing, so do not use them.
Paraphrase and do not use direct quotations. Paraphrase means you do not use
more than four consecutive words from a source document. Removing quotation
marks and citing is inappropriate. Instead put a passage from a source document
into your own words and attribute the passage to the source document. There
should be no passages with quotation marks. Using more than four consecutive
words from a source document would require direct quotation marks. Changing
words from a passage does not exclude the passage from having quotation
marks. If more than four consecutive words are used from source documents, this
material will not be included in the grade.
You are expected to use the research and weekly course materials to develop the
analysis and support the reasoning. There should be a robust use of the course
material. Material used from a source document must be cited and referenced. A
reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation
and vice versa. Changing words from a passage does not exclude the passage from
having quotation marks.
Use in-text citations and provide a reference list that contains the reference
associated with each in-text citation.
You may not use books in completing this problem set unless part of the course
material. Also, do not use a dictionary, Wikipedia, Investopedia, Fern Fort
University, Ibis World or any other for-free website.
Provide the page or paragraph number in every in-text citation presented. Since the
eBook does not have page numbers, include the chapter title and topic heading. If
using a video, provide the minutes and second of the cited material.
Step 7: Submit the Report in the Assignment Folder
Submitting the project to the Assignment Folder is considered the student’s final product and therefore
ready for grading by the instructor. It is incumbent upon the student to verify the project is the correct
submission. No exceptions will be considered by the instructor.
Self-Plagiarism: Self-plagiarism is the act of reusing significant, identical or nearly identical portions o
one’s own work. You cannot re-use any portion of a paper or other graded work that was submitted to
another class even if you are retaking this course. You also will not reuse any portion of previously
submitted work in this class. A zero will be assigned to the assignment if selfplagiarized. Faculty do not have the discretion to accept self-plagiarized work.
NOTE: All submitted work is to be your original work. You may not use any work from another
student, the Internet or an online clearinghouse. You are expected to understand the Academic
Dishonesty and Plagiarism Policy and know that it is your responsibility to learn about
instructor and general academic expectations with regard to proper citation of sources as
specified in the APA Publication Manual, 6th Ed. (Students are held accountable for in-text
citations and an associated reference list only).
