Companies are always responding to inside and outside forces. There are pressures from customers, the marketplace,

a company respond with strategies and their implementation.

implementation. You may use the same company or organization you have used for the SWOT and EFAS table, or you

may choose a new one. You must use at least three sources, one of which must be from the CSU Online Library. In your

essay, address the following questions:

· Describe the general forces of sociocultural, technological, economic, environmental, and political-legal, in the

societal environment. How does your company address each of these?

area of your company, does the company exist in a fragmented or consolidated industry? Within this industry

type, is the company more consolidated or fragmented?

· In what ways may a corporation’s structure and culture be internal strengths or weaknesses? Look at your

organization, and analyze its structural and cultural strengths and weaknesses. How can the weaknesses be

improved? How would an IFAS Table help in this situation?
