Strategic Management Plan for Costco Wholesale Corp.

...Evan Wabrick Strategic Plan Dr. Watts 4/18/2012 Strategic Plan for Costco Wholesale Corporation Executive Summary The retail industry is an extremely competitive environment that poses many challenges for Costco Wholesale Corporation and its competitors. Since many of the stores offer the same products, it may sometimes be very hard for customers to differentiate between retail stores. Even though the economy is recovering from a recession, the retail business is still a mature industry and is improving very steadily. Costco and its competitors are affected by the same political, economic, social, and technological factors, such as taxes, presidential elections, SEC regulations, the economic state of the country, exchange rates, various social characteristics, such as customer age, income and family size, and the growth of e-commerce. All of these external factors have a great influence on how Costco conducts their operations. Costco is a premier leader in the retail industry thanks to their strategic pricing strategy, low cost operating system, and financial stability. Costco is still vulnerable to numerous threats, such as competition, exchange rates fluctuations, increasing labor and healthcare costs, and high exposure to low growth markets. If Costco is to maintain the market share in the retail industry, they should consider the options of offering more customer service in their warehouses, increase online retail sales, and acquire other retail stores for...

...Strategic Management of Apple Inc. and Samsung Group BUS 599: Strategic Management March 17, 2014 Analyze the existing business strategies, domestic and global environments, industry, and internal capabilities for both Apple and Samsung. Assess the significant manner in which company’s mission and vision align with the long-term goals and strategic direction of the organization. The strategy used for the young Apple Inc. was considered as non-cooperative strategy; Steve Jobs one of the original founders and innovator of Apple Inc. did not want to share the company’s software with any other companies. Jobs wanted total exclusion of Apple’s software and hardware products. The differentiation business model gives companies a competitive advantage because the focus is to satisfy the customer need that no other competition can satisfy which allows the company to have higher prices for their products. Apple Inc. came out of the gate with the differentiation model but it did not work for the new company. According to Richard Lynch Apple’s strategy of non-cooperation was not a successful strategy in Apple’s initial launch; Apple’s first handheld device, “Newton” failed (global-strategy.net). Another reason for Apple’s ineffectiveness was the disagreement between Steve Jobs and directors at Apple. Apple director’s wanted Apple, Inc. to use the cost leadership strategy that Michael Dell, founder of Dell PC used and compete more with Dell but Jobs did not want to develop......
