I've got a case study regarding to Strategic
Management, which requires the case in the text
book named "Strategic Management Concepts and Cases"
Thompson, AA & Strickland, AJ 2003, Strategic management, 13th edition, McGraw-Hill, New York, NY.
The assignment require the case study in this textbook
in the topic of "Case : ZAP and the Electric Vehicle
Length : the length is expected to be 16 pages.
Executive Summary = 1 page.
Body = 14-15 pages.
Appendices = 1-2 pages.
** I?ll do the table of contents by myself.
This assessment item links the Course objectives 1-5 are as follows:
1. describe and discuss the theoretical concepts and principles of strategic management, including the formulation and implementation of strategy
2. apply the tools and techniques of strategic management to a variety of organisations in case studies and assignments
3. analyse strategic programs at the corporate, strategic business Unit (SBU), and functional department levels
4. bring together the other courses of your Bachelor?s degree into an integrated approach to business strategy.
5. to write an Executive Report on a pany as if you were a professional Strategic Management Consultant.
You are required to read the Guide for Students and to follow the format of the Executive Report structure given. (Chapter 3). The heading and sub-heading of that structure will guide you in the right direction( can be viewed at this link below)
As you read the case, look out for:
1. important questions posed by people in the case or the case-writer; and
2. the main issues, problems and opportunities
and then include your answers to them within the Executive Report structure.
Similarly, if a case actually poses a number of questions, you should include the answers to those questions inside your Executive Report.
Also note that all cases have different emphases, so some sub-headings will require more attention and a few might not appear at all (as the case does not involve them at all).
For example, if a business does not have a portfolio of SBU?s (Strategic Business Units), divisions or products at all, or if they are not important to the case, then you would not include a Portfolio Analysis Section in your Executive Report.
In some cases the pany is doing well and students then wonder what they are supposed to do. In such cases you need to focus on:
1. why they are doing well
2. what can they do about their weaknesses and
3. how can they do even better, including their possible opportunities in the future.

I will send the case study material, important structure guidelines, remended references source and all information to you via this email address
Please be careful regarding to SWOT analysis, as last time I used your service, and the lecturer remended about the report that there was no analysis provided to turn weaknesses into strengths etc.
Also Porter?s Five Forces Model should have final analysis (see porter model.PNG).
? Turn Weakness to Strength.
? Turn Threat to Opportunity
? Strength and Opportunity have to match (each point have to match for both side)
? Don?t forget to analyse SWOT (what is that mean, remendation, explain, how it?s work, etc.)
The lecturer also said ? should use the marking criteria as a guideline to do the assignment?, please see ?Assesment Criteria.PNG?
The report needs only references not bibliography (see additional resource.doc).
P.S. This is my second time to use your service. Last time I got the mark 19.50 out of 30. For this one the total mark is 40, I would expect to receive around 30 out of 40. Because if I got 30 score from this one, so my total mark could pass this course. However, please be aware of plagiarism (see additional resource.doc).
