Research, select and “analyze” a sample strategic plan in an industry with which you are familiar or interested. If all possible, one strong recommendation is to use the same company you have selected for your Strategic Plan formulation for this assignment.
VERY IMPORTANT – Be sure your narrative includes the various components of a typical strategic plan. Reference Figure 1.1 “Identifying a Company’s Strategy—What to Look For” in Ch. 1 of your text.

Discuss whether the plan:
1. Clearly states where the organization is going and how it will get there.
2. Evaluates the organization’s external and internal environments.
3. Includes a people plan and addresses achievement of a diverse workforce.
4. Includes corporate social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
