Project #52329 - Strategic Management M5C

Strategy Implementation

Background

This final case involves an analysis of strategy implementation at the Kraft Foods Group. You will use the resources you identified in the SLP to gather information about the company and relate that information to your work in the previous four cases.

The Case in this course is an ongoing exercise, meaning that we will be taking an intensive look at one company over the course of our five modules. This term, we are conducting a strategic analysis of the Kraft Foods Group. The best preparation for doing well on the Case Assignments is to complete the Background information reading and the SLP before writing the Case.

Required Reading

Refer to the required and optional reading on strategic controls, the theme for this module.

Case Assignment

In Module , we will conclude the case study process by researching the Kraft Foods Group's strategic controls and their fit with the company's chosen strategy.

Keys to the Assignment

  • Step One: Review your Case papers from Modules 1-4 so that you are familiar with the mission, vision, SWOT, strategy, and strategic choices you have identified over the course of the class.
  • Step Two: Research the structure, systems, people, and culture at the Kraft Foods Group. Use the responses you provided in the SLP as a guideline. You will not be able to get answers to every single question, but you will need to answer at least one or two for each component.
  • Step Three: Describe the Kraft Foods Group's organizational design, key strategic control systems, primary human resources concerns, and cultural factors, and the effect that these have had on the implementation of the Kraft Foods Group's strategy.
  • Step Four: In a 5- to 7-page paper, critically evaluate the fit—or the lack of fit—between the company's mission, strategy, and organizational components crucial to implementation. Do these components complement the strategy? Why or why not?
  • Step Five: What changes would you—as the CEO—make to better assure the success of the company's strategy?
  • Step Six: Consider the Case as a formal business report that you are developing for the Board of Directors and CEO as the Kraft Foods Group's consultant. This is a professionaldocument. Follow the format below:
    • Executive summary: This is a synopsis of the main points, conclusions and recommendations made in the longer report. If you would like a refresher on writing an executive summary, check this website: http://www.highendfinance.com/CommercialLoans/Docs/07-4%20ES%20Guidelines.doc
    • Introduction: State the main purpose of the paper (thesis statement), what you hope to accomplish, and how you will go about doing it.
    • Main Body: The "meat" of the paper. Emphasize analysis, not just description. Delineate separate topics or sections with headings.
    • Conclusion: Summarize your paper in the light of your thesis statement.
