our final, synthesized Strategy Playbook for Extraordinary Results is due at the end of this week, and it represents what can be thought of as a form of “Due
Diligence Analysis,” where you are trying to step into the role of either a consultant to a senior leadership team, or are a member of that team, and where you
are preparing a “forward-looking,” “crisp,” and “impactful” analysis about where you think the company ought to be going over the next 5 years or so, and how
it might get there.
To prepare your Final Draft:
Review this week’s media piece Capstone Strategy Playbook for Exceptional Results: Descriiption of the Playbook. This media piece provides a descriiption
of the contents of the Strategy Playbook, which was also a resource for you in Week 1.
By Day 7
Submit your playbook, which includes the following elements:
A cover page
A written Executive Summary that provides key highlights of your playbook
A strategy map or other playbook summary diagram
An appendix, your synthesized, integrated compilation of your previous playbook entries
General Format: All sections should be single-spaced. Start with a cover page and begin numbering the pages with the Executive Summary and continue the
page numbers through the very end (Appendix included). References should be included after the Appendix and follow APA sixth edition format.
Note: Your paper should have a cover page with a title for the recommended strategy that describes the strategy, like “Maru-C” (“Encircle Caterpillar”), which
was a large-scale strategy that Komatsu strove for in the 1980s.
