Assignment 2: Evaluating Organizational Alliances

profilesquekk
In this module, your team will identify and describe the strategic alliances in your selected organization,
evaluate them for problem areas, and propose solutions to counter these.

In case your selected organization has no strategic alliance, the team will identify ways to create a beneficial alliance, preempting problems that are likely to be encountered in this process and suggesting solutions for them.

Further, the team will create a plan for implementing the solutions identified and evaluating their effectiveness. You will present your findings as a mini business plan, four to five pages long, which can be integrated into the outline of your business plan for the course project.

By Tuesday, April 8, 2014, complete the first column, Problem/Opportunity Identified, in the Project Submission form. Provide details of the problem or opportunity identified and your rationale for considering these in the first section of your mini business plan. Here are some questions that could help you diagnose problems related to the aspect of business alliances for your selected organization:

  1. Does the organization have alliances with other companies?
  2. Can the organization function effectively without alliances?
  3. What are the impacts—positive and negative—of the alliance(s) on the organization?
  4. In today’s global market, is it important to have alliances with other companies?

By Wednesday, April 9, 2014, complete the second column, Solution Identified, for each problem or opportunity in the Project Submission form. Provide details of each solution with your rationale in the second section of your mini business plan. Be sure to include references to the case studies, personal experiences, or other information that you might have based your solutions on.

By Thursday, April 10, 2014, complete the third column, Resource Needs or Constraints, related to the problem(s)/OFIs that you identified. In the corresponding section of your mini business plan, outline the steps for implementing your solutions, clearly identifying the timelines and responsibilities for each task. The level of detail included here should be sufficient to allow smooth implementation of your solution.

By Friday, April 11, 2014, complete the fourth column, Metrics of Success, for the solutions that you identified. In the corresponding section of your mini business plan, create an appropriate matrix against which you can measure the success of each solution. Respond to at least two other classmate's response before the end of the module.
