Аннотация

This course is concerned with strategic management and strategic planning. To be effective, managers must clear understand the factors responsible for their company’s past performance and be able to identify the changes (inside or outside the company) that can help or hurt future performance. Competitive advantage is generally derived from two sources: a) the internal capabilities and resources and b) the positioning of the company in the external business environment. This course introduces a variety of modern strategy frameworks and methodologies in order to help students acquire different skills and habits needed to be successful managers. The main goal of this course is studying the fundamental concepts in strategic management. The course also supports the student’s learning of the following:  Analysis of firms’ ability to create sustainable competitive advantages in turbulent business environment;  Application of resource-base and dynamic capabilities thinking to produce value;  Creation of international business strategies and evaluation of it under different scenarios. The course explores strategic management from two perspectives – theoretical and practical. At the theoretical level, students will examine the strategic discourse – a rich conversation of competing ideas, debate, and case-studies. At the practical level, students will be organized into group project teams. The major academic purpose of the group project is to challenge students to apply theories, concepts, and tools from the classes. The group project reports should contain a comprehensive analysis (inside and/or outside the company), including a detailed analysis of relevant competitors, and conclude with strategic recommendations for top management. Group reports will be done in the form of consulting project.
