Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

****
There is some good insight into strategic management but some muddled thinking as well in places. The writer confuses strategy and implementing the plan. The evaluation of the company is too uncritical. No company plans to fail but many do, often because of following the wrong strategy but often because it is not implemented properly.
