Project #76708 - Managment Analysis Case Study

 

Individual Case Assignment

 

 

 

The purpose of this case analysis is to question the decisions made in arriving at the problem outlined in the case, perform research on the firm using valid and reliable sources of information, analyze factors influencing the current situation, and make a final recommendation based on what is best for the company and all stakeholders including the natural environment.

 

 

 

Check the plagiarism score, and correct any discrepancies you may find. If your paper contains plagiarized content, you will fail the course.

 

 

 

The paper needs to be no more than 5 single-spaced pages of text. Matrices need to be placed in the body of the text where they are mentioned. Matrices are not counted toward the overall page limit. There is no need for a title page. Include endnotes and a works cited page.

 

 

 

In your analysis please include the following:

 

 

 

One or two paragraphs:

 

Background on Monsanto. When was the company founded? What was its original purpose/mission?

 

 

 

Monsanto’s Mission and Vision statements. If they do not have them, write a vision and a mission statement for them. If the statements they have are not adequate, rewrite them according to our textbook guidelines.

 

 

 

Matrices. Complete the following matrices using data from S & P, Hoovers, and Lexis Nexus:

 

  1. EFE

  2. CPM

  3. IFE

  4. SWOT

  5. SPACE

  6. Grand Strategy Matrix

  7. BCG – on the genomics and seed divisions

  8. IE – on the genomics and seed divisions (the IE matrix requires an EFE and IFE for each of the divisions)

  9. QSPM

 

 

 

Strategic Alternatives: In creating the GMO products, the article suggests many alternatives for Tobin and Monsanto to consider. Each strategic alternative is problematic in its own way.  Compare the strategic alternatives in the QSPM, and include at least two alternatives you come up with.

 

 

 

Ethical issues: Address the ethical issues inherent in each of the strategic alternatives, including the ones you create.

Recommendation: Finally, make a recommendation regarding what your analysis shows Tobin and Monsanto need to do.

 

 

 

Remember that a sunk cost does not necessarily need to be recouped when to do so would create even greater costs in the long run that well outweigh the benefits.
