1         Introduction (c100 words)

An introduction to the report and the company.

2         National Strategic Plan Review (c300 words)

  Key details about the national strategic plan

Areas of success, areas to improve? Link to need for internationalisation.

  Key drivers to move to an international strategy

Brief push or pull factors to go international as an organisation.

3         International Strategic Plan (c3700 words)

Develop you national strategic plan (assessment 1) into an INTERNATIONAL strategic plan. Please go back to the exercises that you did in week 4 of the course.

  International Strategy Introduction

Firstly justify why going international is a good strategic option. Justify your country choice, referring back to the comparison table you should have made in your appendices.

  Strategic Analyses

  External Environment Analysis

Include here the summary of your country of choice. All of these sections below need a range of factors to be analysed, not just one. You need to think about the macro environment as well as industry and competition trends, now and over the next 5 years for your country of choice. You will need to look at a wide range of data and sources, which should be included in your appendices and therefore the section below becomes more of a summary of the bigger data in these appendices.

  Political environment

  Economic environment

  Socio-cultural environment

  Technological environment

  Environmental environment

  Legal environment

  Competition

  Internal Analysis

What is the company good or bad at, highlighting an international context? Remember that you will need to research from multiple perspectives, not just what the web-site suggests!

  Resources & core competences

  Organisational performance

  Product/service evaluation

  SWOT Analysis

This is a one page summary of the previous internal and external analyses. The facts need to be the ranked to show the biggest strengths/weaknesses etc., not repeating everything from the previous sections. Reference where these facts came from, so that the reader can go back to that section to get the full picture if needed.

  TOWS Analysis

The ranked facts from the SWOT can now be brought over into the TOWS. This is where your first ideas of problems that need solving with a new strategy will come from. The next section on strategy will derive its justification from this, so you need to make sure it is correct.

  Mission

New international focussed company mission statement here.

  Objectives

Create SMART objectives to give KPI’s for the new strategy. How will you know if your new strategy

is a success? This means creating objectives that are SMART, especially measureable. Think about your objectives as a graph:

This would then automatically create an objective that is measurable, with intermediate KPI’s to ensure that you are on track. The vertical axis and the focus of the objective, for example could be based on sales, profit margins, staff numbers or staff turnover.

  International Strategy 2023-2028

  Strategy Overview

A broad overview to the strategy, followed by a section which should include the following for the individual strategies that you might develop:

  • Strategy Type Statement
  • Directions
  • Methods

You will need to do this for the number of individual strategies that you have, as you may need more than one strategy to solve the issues that you have identified in the first sections of this document.

As a minimum you need to consider these two strategic issues:

Strategy 1 – get into the country. Options:

  1. Set up your new office? High risk/cost.
  2. Go into partnership? But what are you offering the partner? What is the partner offering you?
  3. Buy a local company?

Strategy 2 – what are you going to do once you are there? Potentially starting from zero sales…

  Strategic Implementation

This section is likely to be as big as the internal and external analyses section

  Organising and Resourcing

  • Resource planning (People, finances, technology,
    • Coordination Plan (Gantt
      • Organisational Structure
      Chart)
    plant)

  Monitoring Change

  • Performance targets
    • Control
      • Measurement of performance
      Systems
    (KPI’s)

4         Appendices (20% of the mark!)

Include any supporting information that you need to justify your international plan, including 3 complete PESTLE’s for your choice of countries and an overall table to justify your final choice of country.

This section is also marked, so it needs to be comprehensive and laid out logically.

  PESTLE/Competition analyses for 3 countries

All of these sections below need a range of factors to be analysed, not just one. You need to think about the macro environment as well as industry and competition trends, now and over the next 5 years. You will need to look at a wide range of data and sources, which should be included in your appendices and therefore the section below becomes more of a summary of the bigger data in these appendices.

  Country 1 PESTLE & Competition

  Country 2 PESTLE & Competition

  Country 3 PESTLE & Competition

  3 country comparison table

Remember that you could use the table we looked at in week 4 of the course, or develop one yourself. It must be ranked though, so that you can highlight why one country is best from the three that you looked at. Then take this country over into the main report.
