Grand Strategy Selection

Assignment requires that you use the various Grand Strategy selection  matrices to select the grand strategy (or strategies) that the Coca-Cola  Company should follow. 

List the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the  Coca-Cola Company that you identified in the Module 2 Case assignment.
Review the SWOT Analysis Diagram (Slide 4 of the Grand Strategy Selection Matrices PowerPoint presentation). In which cell do you believe Coca-Cola Company belongs? Defend your answer.
Next, using the Grand Strategy Selection Matrix (Slide 7),  determine the grand strategy (or grand strategies) that should be  pursued by Coca-Cola. Discuss the assumptions you have made in applying  the Grand Strategy Selection Matrix (i.e., explain why you chose  “overcome weaknesses” vs. “maximize strengths” and why you chose  “internally-directed” vs. “externally directed”).
Next, apply the Model of Grand Strategy Clusters (Slide 8) to the Coca-Cola Company. Discussion the assumptions you made in applying the Model of Grand Strategy Clusters to the Coca-Cola Company (i.e., rapid vs. slow growth; weak vs strong competitive position).
Finally, apply the BCG Matrix (Slide 10) to Coca-Cola’s core  strategic choices. Again, discuss your assumptions for choosing, e.g.,  high versus low market share). Is Coca-Cola a Dog, Cash Cow, Star, or  Question Mark?
Compare your results from the Grand Strategy Selection Matrix (Step 2), the Model of Grand Strategy Clusters (Step 3), and the BCG Matrix (Step 4). How do your results compare?
Conclude your written analysis by stating which grand strategy (or strategies) Coke should follow and why. Defend your answer!
