T‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍his is a report focused on the company VF Corporation, the apparel industry and its business environment, divided into 3 parts; 1: External analyses, PESTEL and PORTER 5 FORCES, theories about what Pestl and Porter 5 Forces are will not be accepted, these analyzes will have to be applied directly according to the context. In Pestel, between 4 or 5 analyses, Political, Economic, Technological, Social and Legal can be used. Remembering, do not to explain any theory about these analyses, apply them directly in the text, analysing the global context, and not only in the UK, referencing accordingly, using charts, figures and etc... Discuss the business environment and identify a number of Opportunities - Os and Threats - Ts (is expect 6 issues from business environment to be discussed in total each of which concluded as an O or a T). My task is to identify and discuss 6 most important issues in my opinion and demonstrate how an issue is an Opportunity or a Threat. Part 2 - Internal Analysis. Value Chain and VRIO. Identify and discuss organisation’s unique resources & distinctive capabilities (approximately 10-12 Strengths and Weaknesses should be covered in total). Discuss resources (what a company has) and competences (activities) separately. Address physical ( Retail outlets, manufacturing facilities etc...) and human ( People and team important for the company development) and Intangibles ( brands, links to external stakeholders, etc) company's resources. discuss distinctive competences and construct Value Chain for the organisation and within list a number of specific and distinctive activities for VF Corporation (5-6 in total). Demonstrate how unique capabilities link to competitive advantage (each distinct‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ive competence from Value Chain should be “pushed” through VRIO to identify Core Competences for the organisation). Once the competences are identified one (or two at most) core competence provide a discussion about these below Value Chain or VRIO (what is the activity and how does it contribute to firm’s competitive advantage). Note that all competences listed in value chain (and VRIO) should be company’s Strengths (Weaknesses could be discussed in a descriptive fashion separately). Again, use properly referenced data to support your arguments. This question is about the company (internal analysis). Part 3 - Strategy Evaluation. (Acquisition) Importantly, VF Corporation uses acquisitions as a growth strategy, it is important to evaluate the given strategy. using the three SAFe tests: Construct TOWS populating Os, Ts, Ss and Ws fully (all Os and Ts obtained from Part 1, all Ss and Ws obtained from Part 2). Place the strategy you are evaluating in one of the inner sections and try to associate it to one or more internal and one or more external items while addressing Suitability (. if you place a strategy in S-O quadrant identify appropriate S or Ss combined with O or Os while contemplating this strategy). Construct Power/Interest matrix with a number of relevant stakeholders, then choose two stakeholder groups that will be affected with the strategy and for each discuss if the strategy you are evaluating is acceptable or not and why. While addressing Feasibility, comment on financial resources and skills required for implementation of the strategy being evaluated. : Please, follow the exact format as the previous work AstraZeneca Report attached to the files, using tables, charts, figures and ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍appendices.
