Introduction

M1 I and going to explain about two strategies that are the same and compare it with Mc Donald's and the Manchester Central Library. Two strategies that are different and compare why they are successful or not. Also I'm going to explain why similarities and differences exist. Growth strategies and survival strategies are very similar. In survival strategies they go into new markets that are profitable and go out of markets that aren't. Growth strategies in the market penetration section they try to increase the sales in one of there markets. Both strategies help each other. For example Mc Donald's uses both strategies.
